Geoff Rouse wins the Senior Championships Stableford
Geoff went out early and came in with 42 points for a great win. Barry Needham came 2nd with 40 points after countback against Dave Hills in 3rd. It was the SSAFA charity event and we raised nearly £200 for the very well deserved charity. Geoff and Barry are selected to represent Caldecott Hall GC at Bawburgh in September in the SSAFA Norfolk golf final.
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!
Check back here regularly to find out what's going on at Caldecott Seniors.
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!!
