the glen senior's section
Hello, my name is Colin Fairgrieve, the captain of the seniors section this year. We are very fortunate at The Glen in that we have a very active section, with all events open to all members over 50. There are special events through the year, with details and sign-up sheets on the seniors notice board – located in the locker-room hallway.
We also have 10 friendly matches with various local clubs, played home and away. These are normally a four ball format with 6 matches being played. Again details are on the notice board, with a sign-up sheet being posted 3 or 4 weeks before the match.
For those golfers wanting an informal round, there are “roll up” bounce games Monday, Wednesday and Friday. These are at 12:00 through the summer and 11:30 during the winter months (timed with the clock change). Just turn up at least 15 minutes before the start time to add your name to the list, a random draw makes up 3 or 4 ball groups, depending on numbers. To coincide with the monthly midweek medal (on the second Tuesday of each month), the Monday bounce game is moved to the Tuesday.
News and Events
The seniors evening dinner is approaching and all seniors and their partners are cordially invited. We have a guest speaker arranged, dinner will be a three course meal with coffee and mints to follow. Dress code is not formal; smart casual or jacket and tie as preferred.
The cost is £25.00 per person, please add your name to the list on the seniors notice board, indicating if your partner will also be attending. Menu and further details to follow.
A fine day at Duddingston with only a couple of light showers, strange to hear so many golf balls hitting trees, quiet a change from the Glen! Congratulations to the winning team:
85 points round a new course is a good result. Also congratulations to the individual winner with 36 points:
Mark also won the nearest the flag at the 14th with
nearest the pin at the 10th. Prizes were presented to all the winners.
