Seniors' Open 2015

Seniors Noticeboard : Seniors' Open 2015

Friday 5th June

A very good and thoroughly enjoyable day by all 188 players.  I have to admit my role of meet and greet was not in any way arduous - rather like the duck gliding along in an effortless manor whilst beneath the surface a highly efficient machine was working like mad.

What a lot of people I have to thank and in no particular order I will start with the Ladies Section, who, under the able leadership of Lady Captain Jayne Baxter did a sterling job of manning (or should that be womanning) the half way house and the raffle table.  They were Janet Allen, Gill Armstrong, Jayne Baxter (Lady Captain), Sandra Blairs, Jenny Cordon (Saffs Seniors' Lady Captain), Tina Edwards, Janet Gilbert, Karen Griffiths, Jaqueline Salt, Jackie Sumerling, Anita Wainwright, Susan Watson and the odd one out Alan Yeomans.  In the Pro-shop Jake did an excellent job of entering the cards, as well as dealing with the two's comp and at the same time running the Pro-shop.  Our thanks to Mike Barker for setting up the event on the new computer system and to Andrew Baxter who did a sterling job as starter.

The Green staff also deserve a special mention for the magnificent way in which they set up the course for this day: I spoke to a great many players on the day and everyone I talked to had nothing but praise for the course and its presentation - Thank you lads.

Last but by no means least our able Seniors' Section Secretary Mike Wainwright, ably assisted by the Senior's Section Treasurer Trevor Smedley.  Mike deserves a special mention for the vast amount of work that he puts into this event.  Mike, like many others, does a great deal of work which goes unnoticed by the majority of members. It is the work that he puts in that enables someone like me to glide along, hassle free - as I tell my opposite number in each of the Seniors' matches, my role and only real duty, is to stand up and speak on behalf of the Seniors' Section of Leek Golf Club and to try not to put my foot in it as I do so often.
