Notice to All Senior Players
Caldecott Hall GC is now closed for play until further notice.
Due to the ongoing problems with regard to Coronavirus (Covid 19) and the Government's recommendations to stop all social gatherings and restrict unnecessary travelling, we have decided to postpone all Seniors' Matches with other Clubs until further notice.
This is in line with other Clubs, but most have put a period of time and some the whole season for the postponement of fixtures. We will let you know as soon as our circumstances change.
Captain v Vice Captain Fri 13th March
Captain vs Vice Captain was held on Friday the 13th in a fourball format with the conditions being very inclement, no rain and not much wind. After some great performances the vice-captains team came out winners by 10 points. Senior Captain Alex Knapton shown handing the trophy to his Vice-Captain Mick Turner. The fourball who won comprised of Howard Johnson, Barry Needham, Dave Newton and George Oldman. John Dormer won nearest the pin in two on the 15th. All in all a great days golf. Well done to all who took part.
Winter Eclectic 1st Nov 2019 - 31st Mar 2020
Three weeks to go. Kevin Nightingale has moved up to lead the table with 1 card left. Geoff Edwards is now in 2nd place followed by Barry Needham with Keith Townsend in 3rd and 4th place repectively. closely followed by Roger Rice. The top 10 are covered by just over five strokes so a couple of good rounds on specific holes could see anyone win.
Seniors' Player of the Year 2020
As this year's Seniors' Captain, I suggested at the AGM the introduction of a Player of the Year.
This will be judged on the 28 friendly fixtures we have, starting in March and running through to October and there will be a trophy presented to the winner.
Each player will be awarded 3 points for every match they win away, 2 points for winning at home and drawing away and 1 point for a home draw.
To be eligible, each player will have to play a minimum of 10 matches. We will then divide points into matches played to get an average. Therefore, players playing the most matches will not necessarily have an advantage.
Obviously, there could be an element of who you are drawn to play with giving an advantage, but hopefully, with careful selection, it should balance out in the long run.Please remember, this is a bit of fun only and not to be taken too seriously. Hopefully, this Competition will now run every year.
With regards to selection for friendly matches, we keep a list of who applies to play in all matches and we try to balance out selection in a fair, non-biased way. If anybody has special reasons for playing in particular matches, please ask and we will try and accommodate you.

Alex Knapton takes over as Senior Captain in 2020. His Vice- Captain is going to be Mick Turner.
Alex has already been heavily involved in 2019 and along with Mick have plenty of enthusiasm and ideas all ready for the new season. They look forward to plenty of support from all the seniors and hope you all have a great year, whether playing in the team or just your regular games during the week. Alex is happy to listen to any ideas and suggestions you may want to raise during the season.
Located at Caldecott Hall Fritton we have a good senior section and have many friendlies and competitions during the year.
There are several self run roll up groups who meet up regularly during the week so there should be a chance for every senior to play competitive golf and enjoy other company. New additions always welcomed by the seniors who run them. There is an 8 o'clock group and an 11 o'clock group, for example, on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays.
The course is very rarely closed and drains so well that even after a good spell of rain is still playable.
