Seniors Summer Matches

Each year the D.G. seniors play a summer program of about 30 mid week home and away interclub matches.
Some of these matches are included in our Summer League, set up by Ian Gaskell and you can track our progress below.We play some great senior teams at some excellent clubs and win lose or draw ( though we quite like to win!) everyone has a good time!So far we are doing quite well.

It doesn’t always go that well. Here is one of our stars playing his “approach” shot after his drive didn’t go as far as he had hoped – you can see the tee markers about a yard behind him. Never mind, worse things happen at sea!

All seniors are very welcome to play in our interclub matches but there are a few things that you need to do;

    1. You must to be 55 years of age or older to qualify for seniors matches.

    2. You must have an active handicap. If it’s not active then get some cards in ASAP!
    3. You’ll need to buy some very smart seniors kit (a red seniors shirt, black trousers and black seniors sweater or pullover ). Contact Dave, Chris or the Pro shop to buy some.
    4. You’ll need to give Dave or Chris your email address so that they can keep you updated.
    5. Finally you’ll need to log on to google docs and mark up your availability on the seniors match availability chart.
      If you want to make yourself available for the summer matches, use google sheets link here and use the drop down menu in each match you would like to play in. When you use an iPad for this you need to install the “sheets” app in order to be able to update your availability.
      If you are not included in the list of players, contact the seniors captain.You can follow the team’s fortunes here:

      Seniors M4 Winter League vs Sandford Springs away 15/2/19

      We entered this match needing a win to boost our chances of finishing in the top 2 in our division and therefore qualifying for the knock-out rounds.   The sun shone brilliantly on a beautifully dry course and at one time it was warm enough to play in shirtsleeves.  The company was good and the food […]
