David is pictured holding the trophy. Congratulations to them all. Obviously, those of us regularly visiting the lush rough during the round found it harder to score well, and several players, me included, found our handicaps going up!
As previously reported, the Seniors’ Team has had a successful year to date. Thanks to the energetic initiative of Peter Rold, Roehampton Club has also fielded an over 80s team. Peter tells me that the team has won matches at home and away against Huntercombe and Burhill. In addition, there were two matches against Highgate over 77’s, one of which was won and one lost. The choice of age group was Highgate’s but this will be changed next year to over 80’s as this successful new arrangement with Highgate involves conventional Seniors matches as well.
This success was based on the consistently good play by our lower handicap players, Michael Godfrey, Michael Wright and Nigel Karmel, all of whom played in the majority of matches. They were ably supported by eight others who played on a varying number of occasions.
