Seniors see off SS

In the pale winter sunshine at Donnington Grove, our aged heroes stirred their loins (apologies if this conjures up unpleasant images? – ED)  and managed to secure a fine victory over Sandford Springs in this years  GJ Winter League.

Splendid performances from Messrs. Gaskill Clarke and Carville contributed to an overall team win by 2.5 to 1.5.

So, after a dismal start to this years campaign, DG seniors are moving steadily up the pool table. Watch this space  – but don’t put any money on it!

Well played team – Ed.


A Tough but Enjoyable TOGS day – Thursday 21st November

26 redoubtable Togsters faced up to a bit of a gluepot of a course to compete in a Lone Ranger with a Twist this Thursday.

Each member of a three ball team took turns to register a mandatory stableford score to be multiplied by the next best or least best score depending on the hole being played. Scoring was tough given the conditions and Craig Buchanan, Chris Tobin and John Headland were worthy winners posting an impressive 58 points.

Well done all who took part.

Water-logged at the Wiltshire …

Our aged heroes slithered and splashed around the mud soaked ‘fairways’ (surely some mistake here – ED?) yesterday in their GJ winter league match v the Wiltshire GC and yet convincingly managed to halve the match.

This was down to a  fine performance from Big Al. and Big Kev. and sound halves from Andy M & Rob C and Peter D & Barry W.

In fact, it was only the pair of captains (sure this is the right word? – ED) out first, who managed to let the side down.

So well done team – onward and upward – and come back soon big Kev !



Cumberwell convincingly clobbered!

To make up for the narrow defeat in the recent away match,our aged heroes pulled out all the stops yesterday and turned in a splendid performance to beat a really good Cumberwell Park team by 3 to 1 and indeed our fourth pair only narrowly lost their match on the last green.

A really good all round team performance which has restored some (though not much!) semblance of acceptability to our position in this year’s GJ league table.

Well done team – Ed,

Seniors Suffer Another Crushing Defeat

Sad to say our winter league match players suffered a second four nil drubbing in succession in the M4 League away to Sand Martins.  Despite the weather, with the match having to be played over the back nine twice with the front nine closed, the course, especially the greens, was in pretty good nick.  Unfortunately so was the opposition who proved far too good on the day.
