Hodds Salver vs Swaffham Away
We had a great match at Swaffham only just failing to overturn the home team by three holes. They were a good side and the match was played in excellent spirit. So quarter finals in 2019 and hoping for further in 2020. Well done team, very many thanks for all of your support.
AGM & 3 Clubs and a Putter
We had a very well attended AGM which went well. The senior captain reported on the year's seniors activity and the treasurer reported on our accounts for the year. We agreed unanimously to donate £250 to the Sandra Chapman Centre at the James Paget Hospital, selected by Phil Lowe, one of our seniors, who is receiving treatment there at the moment. We decided to run a Player of the Year in 2020 for anyone who plays ten games or more in the friendlies. We will continue to add events and ideas so that we get the most from our membership. Alex Knapton will be the Senior Captain in 2020 with Mick Turner as his Vice-captain so all continued support will be much appreciated.
We played the 3 clubs and a putter competition this year over 18 holes. It worked out very well with Barry Needham coming out the winner with 36 points followed in 2nd place by Gary Aldis with 32 points. The captain offered to buy a cup for next year and add on Barry's name once purchased.
Many thanks to everyone who attended and who played. Your support is always appreciated.
One of our seniors, Phil Lowe, sadly died on Sunday after a year long fight against cancer. He was a great addition to the seniors and supported many of our competitions and matches. He will be greatly missed. His funeral will be held at 11.00am on Tuesday the 19th November at the Waveney Memorial Crematorium Beccles and afterwards at Rookery Park GC.

Geoff Edwards wins Senior Medal Championship
It was a windy day, after a few days of rain, and that was reflected in the scores. Geoff Edwards won with a net 75 followed by Roger Rice on 76 and Ralph Read 3rd with a net 78. Many thanks for all of the entrants. Looking forward to the stableford championship on the 28th June.
We played our 2nd round against Royal Norwich away on Wednesday the 5th June 2019. We lost by 10 holes so not bad considering playing away to a strong team. Many thanks to Graham, Dave, Keith, Kevin, Trevor, Geoff, Paul and John. A shame we didn't win but a good day's golf. Looking forward to 2020 fixtures!

Hodds Salver 2017
Seniors Winter Foursomes Comp was played today at home against Sheringham, a truly spirited game was had by all but unfortunately we lost by 15 holes. The good news is they enjoyed the games /match so much we are being invited to play there in the new year !
They really liked the food,the course and the company so maybe we're not that bad after all.
Well done and thank you.
Yesterday Wed 2 Aug the Barnard Team Fought a hard battle against Kings Lynn Golf Club at Mundesly. Although the rain held off,high winds and an unfamiliar 9 hole course resulted in a 14 hole defeat. As Capt it was a pleasure to take the team through to the Semi Finals,well done to you all.
From my point of view I am concerned with the way in which these competitions are officiated and unless a less biased attitude is taken I can see less players wanting to play in them.
The Player's medal has now been awarded to 3 players over the last months,it was passed on to Frank Scales for mouthing off at the meal held at Dunston Hall, followed by Alex Knapton for forgetting his trousers at the meal at Gorlston GC and Alex passed it on to John Hickling for being to tight to by a new Seniors shirt.Who's next?
The Stableford Competition held yesterday 30th Jun was won on countback by Howard Johnson with 38 points and Dave Newton close 2nd.An Eagle on the 10th helped and will probably never happen again. The Norfolk SSAFA rep attended the day and remarked "What a great bunch of guys you have"?????.
The Competition raised £92.00 with the monies raised from the medal comp and further donations to this worthy cause we raised £148.00. Thanks Guys!!
