The Seniors season, and my term as Seniors Captain, were brought to end with the Annual Claret Jug competition followed by the AGM.The Claret Jug was won by Peter Brooks with a score of 39 pts.
I have had a great season, for which I thank all the seniors for supporting the matches and my away day (although it was rather wet). We did struggle on a few occasions to get a complete team at the last minute, hopefully next year with the adjustments we have made the situation will improve. We have adjusted the qualifying age for Seniors at Longcliffe to 55, which brings us in line with most other clubs. The annual subscription of just £10 is good value for money as this includes an end of season meal and Seniors get to visit some very attractive courses with no green fee.
Roy Longthorn was confirmed as Seniors Captain and John Strodachs as his Vice Captain for 2018. Secretary George Hay and Treasurer Frank Fay will continue for next year. I wish them all well.
Overall Results for the Season were: Played 21 Won 8 Lost 11 Halved 2 Cancelled (due to bad weather) 1
My thanks go to all Seniors and the Ladies section for supporting the Seniors Open and supporting the two competitions we play with the Ladies.
