This page gives access to all of the Seniors results for trophy and qualifier competitions, events and matches.

Tuesday 10th March 2020 –  March Medal

‘Matthews and Cockshott March Medal Winners ’

The Seniors held their first formal competitive event of the year, the March Monthly Medal incorporating the Pro-Am Qualifier, on a dry and mild morning which was completely opposite to recent days during the month when it seemed to rain every day. To allow the course to recover from the recent period of heavy rain a shorter course was designated for the event being a total 13 holes with handicaps adjusted accordingly. Division One category players saw Ross Matthews achieve his medal win with net 46 followed closely in second place by Chris Webb, also with net 46. Graham Fearis took the third spot with net 47. John Cockshott was delighted with his medal win in the Division Two category with his score of net 49 which just edged Colin Moody into second place with his net 49. John Pickering claimed third place with a score of net 51. The best overall net score of the competition earned Ross Matthews a place in the Seniors Pro Am team to be entered in the New Forest Golf Club Pro Am Tournament scheduled for later in the year.   The photo shows (l to r) Ross Matthews and John Cockshott.

Tuesday 7th January 2020 – Hole in One on 14th

‘Moody’s Wonder First Shot’
 
Just the same as we started the 2019 Season it’s happened again  !!!!…when Colin Moody took just a moment to secure a hole in one with his first shot of the day. Departing from the Clubhouse with his fellow senior golfers to enjoy a round in the Bowmaker competition, he strolled out to his starting hole, the 14th par 3, pulled his chosen club from the bag and without hesitation or even a practice swing he executed a smooth stroke which set his ball on the target line for the pin and within a moment the ball nestled in the bottom of the hole. Such occasions are few and far between and Colin took the opportunity to accept the adulation of his fellow golfers.

‘No Bounce Burn’
With the best, so far, of our Competitions having been cancelled, thanks to Mr Pepsicolavirus , we can but bring you news of a “fantastic” hole in one captured by our overseas contingent none other than Laurie Burn, during his Winter League Qtr Final, complete with is “gap wedge”in hand….the ball flying onwards to the par 3 , 11th hole and, without as much as a gentle roll up on the green or even  one bounce …it plummeted straight in the hole !!!. Laurie said that he is “baie bly en vereer” to receive the trophy

Tuesday 4th August 2020 –  August Medal
‘Clark and Hall Medal Winners’

 After a lengthy period of absence due to Covid19 restrictions, it was a real joy to welcome the Seniors Section back to playing qualifier trophy competitions. An excellent turnout of members, who maintained social distancing, participated in the August Monthly Medal playing on a course which was provided in supreme condition by the greens staff. The fairways welcomed long drives whilst the greens with their immaculate appearance provided a tough test for those who have recently become used to short distance gimmie putts. The medals were awarded to Alan Clark (Division One) for a very respectable net 65 and to Ian Hall (Division Two) who carded 68 with a better back nine hole score than Ian Coundon. Competition net placings: Division One -1st Alan Clark 65, 2nd Phil Wright 66, 3rd Steve Lupton 69. Division Two – 1st Ian Hall 68, 2nd Ian Coundon 68, 3rd Mike Broom 71.
