Weekending 19th October 2019 Monday 14th October The Seniors played their final match of the season, away to Rutland Water. Unfortunately we they were unable to improve on their recent run of form and went down by 3½ games to 2½ in a closely contested match. The course was very wet under foot and the final holes were played in torrential rain, this did not detract from a match enjoyed by both teams. The after match meal was almost cuisine and greatly enjoyed by both camps. Stand in Captain for Rutland County thanked John Goff, Charles Laverty and David Wilson for standing in for call offs at short notice. One bright spot for the “Captain”, John Adkins won the Nearest the Pin on the 12th. Tuesday 15 th October. The start of the Winter Competitions, the forecast was for a dry day with light winds. The weather over the past 24 hours had been very wet, making the course muddy in places and putting all bunkers out of play. This affected the days competition to the extent that it would not be a qualifying round. However the scoring would count towards the first round of the Winter Stableford. There was a field of 48 members who enjoyed playing off the blue tees, scoring did show this with the majority of scores being in the 30’s. CAPTAINS NOTICES. 1. Good to see Pete Kelleher back for a visit, hopes to be playing soon. 2. It is reported that Joe Hobson is very poorly, no details at present. 3. No further report on Eric Norton, hope to pay him a visit soon. 4. Had lunch with Carole Bremner and family on Saturday. I am in the process of making a chair in John’s memory , it is agreed that it can be placed next to the 14 th green, the sight of Johns “24” during a competition earlier in the year. This will cost about £100.00, any donations towards the materials will be appreciated. 5. On a lighter note.

Thursday 17 th October A field of 37 members took part in this mornings roll up which was 1 – 2 – 3 . The weather was fine, clear blue skies when we started but as promised by the forecasters a little rain would arrive about 2 p.m. and it did, so the tail enders got a little damp. The course was drying out nicely following the heavy rains last weekend, the bunkers were still G.U.R. (much to the relief of many) but winter rules were not in operation. Todays scores were not the most impressive with the winning trio of : Ray Taylor, Dave Wilson and Derek Cooper only returning a score of 78 points. Although they did take all the prizes between them. Best front 9, with 19 points was Ray Taylor. Best back 9 with 20 points was Derek Cooper. Winter Stableford.
