Goring once again

After 2 successive draws the Seniors had a  good 3-1 win in the M4 league against a strong side from Goring and Streatley. Dave Lawson stepped in as Captain for the day with the usual accompanied success, thanks Dave.

This will be the last time we play them in the foreseeable future and I suspect they’ll be glad to see the back of us after we had the better of the four fixtures against them this year (two in the summer friendlies).

We now take a well-deserved rest till the next bout of fixtures which commence in January.

Peter Drummond is Top Gun

On Friday the Seniors held their end of summer awards day. This started with a 10 a side ‘Ryder Cup’ style match between the Captains team and the Crew ( captained by the vice captain).

For the first time in history The Captain’s team won and received the coveted Captain v Crew Trophy.

Dave Williams won the nearest the pin on the 5th, and Roger Rapley won the nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th.

We celebrated with drinks and a meal followed by presentations of the trophies.

Peter Drummond received the Top Gun award for best performance in inter club matches during the summer. He had the amazing achievement of winning 9 of his 11 matches. Really well done Peter!

Tim Brunsden won the Seniors Stalwart Cup for playing in the most matches during the season, amassing a stunning total of 24 matches coupled with a terrific success rate of 69%!

Roger Rapley was the unfortunate recipient of the PPP plate. This stands for poor partner picking since all games are played in pairs!

Many thanks to all the Seniors who played for us this summer.

Seniors Winter League- Fun in the Sun!

The Seniors played their first match in the M4 Seniors Winter League today in glorious sunshine at Mapledurham.

Unfortunately, although all our players played well, it seems the opposition just played out of their skins so we lost 3:1!

Well done to Andy Madeley and Dave Lawson who won their match. Commiseration to Tim Brunsden and Graeme Hartwell for losing on the, par 3, last to a birdie from off the green.

The nearest the pin was won by Chris Tobin. Didn’t make the putt!
