Seniors Noticeboard : SENIOR CAPTAIN UPDATE - AUGUST 2019

The months are flying by with more twists and turns than a Brazilian outside right!

Fixture Results played in July:

Market Drayton (H) WIN

Market Drayton (A) LOSS

Wolstanton (H) WIN

Stone (H) WIN

Prestbury (A) LOSS

Ken & I played at Market Drayton (Away) dropping 4 shots on the front nine. We were 6 down after 9 holes. Market Drayton’s Captain had back to back Birdies and numerous Pars so he clearly meant business. We eventually lost 8 + 7.

After the match I collected card, elastic bands, scissors and markers from their club office and created a mask for their Seniors Captain with the words “El Bandito” written on the inside. I said that Alan their Seniors Captain must wear the mask before every

Match to give other potential players a fighting chance. I presented the mask to him during the presentation. Everyone took it in good sport. This is what being part of the seniors is all about. Great golf and great fellowship.

Forthcoming Fixtures in August:

12th August (H) Matlock

19th August (A) Ingestre

We've now opened the invitation to playing this beautiful course to non-senior members as long as you are over 55 years of age. I chose Reddish Vale because a lot of people haven’t played it and it looks a really interesting course. Designed by Alistair MacKenzie and built in 1912 it attracts a lot of attention and great reviews from leading golf course architects and golfers alike. It’s tucked away nicely in an urban environment, relatively undiscovered and secluded from the outside world. I believe you will really enjoy it and of course have a great day out!

All players who have already put their names down or would now like to go a £10 deposit is required by the end of August. This deposit can be given to Trevor Smedley, Me (Seniors Captain) or to the Pro Shop in an envelope with your name clearly marked on the front.

The balance of £30 is payable on the day.

Dave Burgess

2019 Seniors Captain
