Men’s Seniors’ Golf News
The Men’s Seniors’ Section at the Club are slowly adjusting to the fact that our Chairman for the past five and a half years, Quentin Robey, has resigned from the Seniors’ Committee. Quentin has contributed so much to the organisation of the Men’s Seniors and leaves with our section in a very healthy state. He carries with him the thanks and appreciation of all our regular Members.
With all competitions, events and roll ups suspended during lockdown, we are delighted that we have been able to hold our first event, the April Grail, on Wednesday 14 April. We assembled a start sheet of 73 players which is testament to the popularity of our group’s events in recent times.
In unseasonably cold but bright weather, a field of 73 players flooded the course, many of whom were completing their first eighteen holes since golf resumed. The course was in good condition, taking account of its very heavy use in the last two and a half weeks facilitating some good scoring.
Our worthy winner was David Moss who scored a magnificent 41 Stableford points.
And the other prize winners were:
1st Place David Moss 41 Points
2nd Place Paul Gordon-Brown 40 Points
3rd Place Les Barlow 39 Points (Back 9 – 21 Points)
4th Place John Wyn-Evans 39 Points (Back 9 – 20 Points)
5th Place Kenneth Ukoko 39 Points (Back 9 – 19 Points)
Over the next months we will be holding our monthly Grail and on 12 May we will have our spring Medal. These events will contribute to our summer eclectic competition played for the Hamid Lari trophy. This will mean that there will be eight events during which scores can count towards the eclectic competition.
We are expecting last summer’s Super Seniors and Seriously Seniors knockouts to be concluded. More news of the winners in due course.
Hopefully in the months to come we can restart playing matches at Roehampton as our growing squad will be called into action.
