23rd May

In the words of Lionel Ritchie “Hello, how are you” or in the words of Maltese Pete Zammit “Hello, Keef in Tom” all well I hope, sorry for being a day late again but I only got the results today while I was at the club.

Yesterday 37 seniors turned up and played a med-stab competition, in a brisk breeze but as the morning went on it warmed up nicely.

There were only 2 two’s both scored on the 2nd hole and the winners were Jim Ferguson and John Dyson, a very well done both of you.

Once again the winning score is on average still well over level par, but in the words of “Bargain hunt we’ve got a winner and we also got a runner up” and the winners today were: in Cat 1 Geoff Dutton with 19 points and the runner up was Neil Jenkinson with 20 points.

In Cat 2 the runner up was John Dyson with 18 points and the winner and the only player below par was Alan Jude with 16 points. Mind you between you and I these two travel together and mark each other’s card so it could be Dyson, Dyson, or should it be dicey, dicey.

Joking aside well done Alan and well done John, Geoff, and Neil.


The rest of the seniors were playing at Woodhall Spa yesterday, the Woodhall Captain Norman Burdens promised me that he will get us on the Hotchkins course and true to his words we played on the Hotchkins yesterday, so thank you for that Norman.This is quite a tough course with lots and lots of deep bunkers and the type of course that one needs to play it a few times ( if they can afford it) before you are able to do well on it, needless to say we suffered a big loss, we lost by 7 matches to one, although the last 3 matches were close scores and could have easily gone our way, but they didn’t, so we just have to make sure that we will reap revenge when they come to South Kyme in August, well done team and thank you for representing our senior section.


Tomorrow Thursday we have the over 70’s Dodman /Tasker greensomes Trophy and the under 70’s greensomes trophy, so we will see you there, and don’t forget that the June medal is not far now and as you all know by now we are doing our Meal Deals on every medal day, the menu list is on the board so if you havn’t got your names down please do so, the choices this month are “Ham Egg and Chips” and “Curry and Rice or Chips” after your round, you also get a bacon Bap and a token before you go out to play all for £8, so what is it “Deal or no Deal”.


You must all think I’m a telly addict but believe me I hardly ever switch the thing on, so until tomorrow have a good evening and,


Good Byee, Good Byee, wipe the tear baby dear from your eyeee.
