Seniors Open – Fri 15th July 2016

Another glorious day and 104 seniors including 60 visitors, who come from near and far, ventured around the golf course testing their skills in a better ball competition off the yellows tees.

After the competition they shared a summer buffet prepared by our catering staff, which everyone enjoyed.

All agreed it was a wonderful day, the course was in great condition and appeared to be easy for some, as can be seen from the winning scores, but more difficult for others.

The results were :–

  1. Dave Huxtable and Kevin Metherell with 47 pts
  2. Bernard Barry and Jeff Barry with 45 pts
  3. Alan Lund and Dave Atkinson with 45 pts

Prizes were awarded for up to twelfth place and all the winners took home bottles of wine.

There was also a prize for the best over 70 pair, who were not one the main prize winners, and that went to Frank Giles and Derek Loader with a score of 41pts.

A raffle was held on behalf of the Seniors Captain, Bill Truscott and thanks to the generosity of the players a total of £206 was raised for his charity Friedreich’s Ataxia a degenerative motor neurone disease for which there is no known cure.
