Roll Up Report – 19th February 2019

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 19th February.

Forty nine players took part in this week’s game, with the weather unseasonably mild it proved to be an enjoyable walk!

Once again the BorB remained elusive, next week we move on to the 13th

Clubhouse

I think it’s worth mentioning that with the arrival of our new chef there has been a marked improvement in the quality and choice of food available, with this in mind I’d like to encourage members to partake so that we can ensure that this area of the golf club remains viable

This is the final reminder for anyone who wishes to join this scheme.

Roll Up Report – 12th February 2019

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 12th  February.

Fifty four players took part in a game of 1,2,3 this week, it seemed that everyone was very keen to play which was demonstrated by all players arriving early!

Once again the BorB remains elusive, although I am informed that Alan Wilkins came close, I’m sure we all feel for him, never mind on we go to the next challenge which is hole #8.

Thursday 14th

Valentines dinner

Why not celebrate in the clubhouse and sample the menu of our new chef?

Roll Up Report – 5th February 2019

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 5th February.

Forty five players turned up to take part in a game of individual stableford this week, all seemed pleased to finally throw off the shackles that the weather had thrust upon us.

The after effects of the weather was plain to see, especially on the fourteenth fairway,  I guess that the majority of players second shot landed squarely in a wide patch of snow which seemed hell bent on remaining defiant.

The BorB remains intact, this isn’t surprising really as you would need to have been within an inch or two from the hole to guarantee your putt, anything further away than that would certainly be at the mercy of the terrain. The BorB now moves onto hole six.

Results

Group 1

1st     Roger Bates                h/c   9       pts    40 c/b

2nd    Nick Tomaszewski   h/c   19     pts    40

3rd    Tony Dyet                  h/c   18     pts    39

4th     Tim Hoiles                  h/c   21     pts    37 c/

Group 2

Due to a clerical error it was found that one members card had been missed, therefore it has been decided that the result announced was incorrect and in this case we have decided to pay a 5th place.

1st     Dave Roberts            h/c   26     pts    45

2nd    Chris Howard            h/c   30     pts    40

Roll Up Report – 22nd January 2019

42 players braved the weather to play yellow ball this week

Following a slight problem when the handicap sheet mysteriously disappeared, almost all players managed to get away, I say almost because while waiting to tee off at the 15th a certain member of the committee suddenly realised that either his playing partners had decided not to play or alternatively he was in the wrong place.

Can I remind members that our finance guru is still waiting for those who are yet to pay their yearly subscription, until this is paid he cannot report on the correct number of members for 2019

Anyone who still wishes to join the insurance scheme should let Terry Clark know ASAP, Terry needs to submit the information to the Insurers, this is a one time opportunity.

There will be Race Night in the clubhouse on March 1st in aid of The British Heart Foundation

£10 pp which includes a warm supper.

Roll Up Roundup – 15th January 2019

Roll up results 15/01/19

52 players turned up to play individual stableford this week and looking at the results some did much more than just turn up, unfortunately I am not included in this group.

The BorB is still intact so we move on to hole 13 next week which I’m told is possibly the easiest of the par 3s.

We welcome a new member this week. Barrie Bunning,  I’m sure he was more than impressed by the quality of golf!

It was brought to my attention yesterday that some members were interpreting the new rules incorrectly, it involved grounding your club in a bunker, the rules state “ that you cannot touch the sand with your club in front or behind the ball”, there are exceptions about touching the sand which you can read on page 66 of the players edition of the rules of golf available in the pro shop.

I’m sure all are aware now that we have the divot bags, as responsible golfers we should show others that as a group we will do our best to protect our course.

Roll Up Roundup – 8th January 2019

Here we go again, the start of a new year’s golf, the signup yesterday resembled passport control the day after we leave the EU. (providing we leave that is).

Apologies for the delayed start, the reason for this was that members were paying for the roll up and their annual subscriptions, 56 players turned up which obviously takes a little longer than usual, many thanks to Peter for managing the situation. 

Just a gentle reminder to those who have yet to pay their subscription for the year please do so a.s.a.p. also those wishing to take advantage of the golf insurance please contact Terry Clark.

The BorB on the 6th proved too difficult for all those who tried so better luck next week on the 8th

Some members may be unaware that Natali leaves us on Friday.  Over the past couple of years Natali has been instrumental in ensuring that the clubhouse kept functioning when Adrian left. I’m sure we all wish her the very best in her new position of deputy Manager at Mollies, try and come along on Friday and wish her well.

This week’s roll up results are:

1st           Chris Curd                           Mervyn Evans                   Martin Clark                       60.0

 2nd         Gordon Westerhof         Steven Sands                     Chris Smyth                        64.2

3rd           Tony Scrivens                    Peter Pitts                           Barrie Layfield                   64.9

Next weeks competition is individual stableford.

Roll Up Roundup – 18th December 2018

Hi Everyone

Not really a roll-up of course but rather the results from the Colin Pedley, the last competition of the 2018-season.

Just the one reminder this week, obviously for the AGM.

  • The agenda is now on the website and the notice-board along with the one proposal received prior to the closing date [30th November].

Sustenance in the form of a pre-AGM lunch will be available at a cost of £8, but please note: unlike with the Pedley this will be optional meaning that if you wish to take advantage either let me know in advance via Email or by using a sign-up sheet that will be in the clubhouse on the day – in either event, payment must be made to the clubhouse BEFORE starting your round.

Moving on;  no BoB this week as we had ‘on-course’ prizes to titillate you instead, the full results for the day being:

  Colin Pedley Trophy    
Position Name H’cap Score
First Dave Wanless 19.0 41
Second Jerry Senior 14.0 36 c/b
Third Jeff Dixon 29.0 36 c/b
Fourth Peter Metcalfe 22.0 34 c/b

On-course:   Nearest-the-pin:                     Chris Smyth

                      Nearest-the-pin in two:         David Stroud

                      Longest drive:                        Brian Reid

Particular congratulations to this week’s winners given that it was a ‘biggy’.

When you return in the New Year you will have a Texas Scramble to ease you into 2019.   In the meantime I’m hoping to get one final newsletter out to provide some Yuletide reading, but ‘just in case’ a very Merry Christmas to one and all.

Captain’s Newsletter – December 2018

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this the final newsletter of 2018, and possibly for some considerable time – I say nothing!!!   So as well as reflecting on the Colin Pedley, there will also be a summary of the year’s awards, but first of course [did you doubt it] an announcement – but just the one:  

The Seniors AGM,           which is being held on 8th January following the first roll-up of the New Year and sustenance in the form of lunch will be available at a cost of £8, but please note: unlike with the Pedley this will be optional meaning that if you wish to take advantage either let me know in advance via Email or by using a sign-up sheet that will be in the clubhouse on the day – in either event, payment must be made to the clubhouse BEFORE starting your round.

Colin Pedley

The weather proved the most influential factor ‘on the day’ as strong winds and, for those with a late teed-time, the rain conspired to make in an interesting if not challenging round for all concerned.   In the end it was the cunning ‘low-flight’ technique of Dave Wanless’ driving that paid dividends, as Dave won through with a blistering score of 41.

Colin Pedley 2018 Winner – Dave Wanless

And for those that missed it, the full results were:

Colin Pedley:                 Winner                                    Dave Wanless            41

                                       Second                                                Jerry Senior               36 c/b

                                       Third                                       Jeff Dixon                  36 c/b

                                       Fourth                                     Peter Metcalfe           34 c/b

On-course:                     Nearest-the-pin [13]                Chris Smyth

                                       Nearest-the-pin in two [18]     David Stroud

                                       Longest drive [5]                    Brian Reid

The ‘Pedley’ was of course followed by a hearty lunch and our annual awards ceremony, and once everyone had refuelled & thawed-out, a generally good time was evidently had by all as the following images clearly show.

2018 Monthly Medal Winners – but what had Brian said to upset the others???

A rather outnumbered Natali – do you think they’re hungry?

Roll Up Roundup – 11th December 2018

Hi Everyone

We’reevidently getting something right as 51-seniors pitched-up today [no pun intended] to take full advantage of the benign conditions.

Just two announcements this week, both important to the upcoming events:

  • Bill will be updating the handicaps following this week’s roll-up and thereafter making the draw for the ‘Pedley’ in time to circulate your tee-times by the weekend – at least we hope that’s the case as he’s off on a winter break on Friday.   Have a good one Bill.

As for the day itself, we have arranged with Natali that the buffet service will commence at 1:00pm, and this will be on a rolling basis to keep things moving and so enable us to start the presentation of awards as early as possible.

  • The agenda for the AGM is now on the website and the notice-board along with the one proposal received prior to the closing date [30th November].

Sustenance in the form of a pre-AGM lunch will be available at a cost of £8, but please note: unlike with the Pedley this will be optional meaning that if you wish to take advantage either let me know in advance via Email or by using a sign-up sheet that will be in the clubhouse on the day – in either event, payment must be made to the clubhouse BEFORE starting your round.

Moving on;  the BoB returned to something approaching normal this week as there was no winner, meaning that we will restart in the New Year on the 6th.   As for the roll-up, a prequel to the Pedley being an individual stableford, there were contrasting results between groups 1 & 2, the former being very tight, while the latter was almost orderly, the results being:

    Individual Stableford    
Group Position Name H’cap Score
1 1st Nick Tomaszewski 18.3 38 c/b
1 2nd Graham Brindley 13.5 38 c/b
1 3rd Gordon Blake 19.5 38 c/b
1 4th Phil Toms 19.7 36 c/b
2 1st Tim Hoiles 20.7 41
2 2nd Gordon Westerhof 25.3 40
2 3rd Richard Dewar 25.0 39
2 4th Jeff Dixon 29.8 38

Congratulations to this week’s winners, and ‘bon chance’ to all those playing in the Pedley, the last trophy event of 2018.   Needless to say we have arranged for it to be dry, albeit it may be a little breezy – well, you can’t have everything!!!!

See you on the day
