Seniors Golf

What is Senior’s golf?

 

The ‘Seniors’ is a relaxed and friendly competition played over 9 holes on Monday mornings, from the yellow (social) tees, for those over 55.

It was run from 1988 until 2014 under the stewardship of youngster, Ian “Tricky” Trickett. Maximum handicap is 50 (you start on 1 less than your GA handicap), there are no annual fees, visitors and beginners are welcome.

A feature of the group is the annual “Xmas Hams Day”. On this day, every regular player receives a substantial ham, along with the Xmas lunch.

Come along and join us on a Monday, just roll up from 7.30am, bookings not necessary.

The ball count went down eight places.

Nearest the pin on the 16th was Alan Holzigal.

Overheard on the tenth, “I went to buy some toilet paper from Coles, and I also had to take a cabbage and some mayonnaise; apparently this is “Coles Law”!

The Club has made some changes to its rules to enable golf to be played under the current WHO recommendations, so I am keeping an open mind on whether or not we continue our comp into the immediate future. I have been advised by some players that they will not be playing while this current disastrous situation exists, and it could be that it might not be viable for the rest of us to continue. Rest assured, if we do take a break, it will only be until things return to normal.

Assuming we do continue, I would ask that players abide by the amended rules, and could I also ask players to adhere to their allotted tee-off times in consideration of other players.

I look forward to taking a preferred lie in the bunkers to avoid handling the rakes, (Which have all been removed. Apparently, so have the pins!)

Good golfing,

Peter
