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

22nd August (A) Newcastle

2019 SENIORS CAPTAINS AWAY DAY

Friday 6th September 2019

Reddish Vale Golf Club, Southcliffe Road, Stockport SK5 7EE

Prize £40 Per Person

Itinerary:

Full English Breakfast on arrival.

Round of Golf

3 Course Meal

Prize Presentation

Players requiring a buggy should contact Reddish Vale Golf Club directly on 0161 480 2359.

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.

SENIORS CAPTAIN'S NEWSLETTER - June 2019

Message from Dave Burgess (Senior Captain 2019)

Belated Happy Christmas, Happy New Year...

Buxton High Peak was our first Home fixture of 2019 & the banter, laughter, beer and food was flowing freely so a great match and social afterwards was had. Since then the months have flown by, gathering pace. New members onboard, 8 to be exact. Welcome to them all. They are now enjoying golf in different venues, making new friends...what a life we lead!

Our 2019 Seniors Open at the beginning of June welcomed 20 Pairs. The weather was kind in the morning but from 12.30pm onwards it was a different story. A procession of soggy cards and soggy golfers followed. They may have been wet but their smiles and enthusiasm wasn't dampened. The day ran so smoothly. I was proud of all the teamwork from all concerned. The course was in fantastic condition so thanks for the Greens Staff for all their hard work, Meet & Greet from the Lady Captain and all her team, the catering staff for their courtesy extended to all the visitors, all the senior members who helped with the organisation and registration, Jacob the Assistant Pro for his efforts on the puddled green. Once again thanks for all. The day wouldn't happen without you all.

A quote from a Visitor regarding our 2019 Seniors Open:

"I wish to express our thanks for your Club's organisation of this event. We have been coming to play for a number of years and we are always impressed by the Course presentation, the catering and friendliness of all staff, and the general reception from all concerned in organising this event. Once again, our thanks, and see you next year."
