  Seniors

 


  (Our iconic statue)

 

Do you like playing golf in a relaxed yet competitive manner?

Are you over 55?

Then get in touch with Deanwood Seniors via the Clubhouse on 01635 48772.



Normally the Seniors (Evergreens) meet on a Friday at 08.00 hours. During the winter months (November - March) this is 08.30 hours.

The Captain - Ray Bilton - is always willing to chat and can be contacted through the members section of the website or via the Pro shop.


If Friday is not convenient then there is an offshoot group (The Deans) meeting on Monday (11 am) and Wednesday ( 8 am). Their contacts are Gordon Neale, Colin Jones and Richard Jones all contactable through the website or the Pro shop.



No matter what time of year you are guaranteed a warm welcome here!





....... make sure you know the right handicap for each tee and that you are aware of all the local rules .




John  said the other day that anyone who called him pretentious should walk a mile in his Louis Vuittons!




.......come and play golf with the Seniors...........




......................................you might put us all in the shade!



This means that the draw for the Seniors will now take place at 08.00 hrs..


Winter Rules.

I don't really know if it's good news but Winter rules have been extended!

For clarification see the news section of the website.



May Stableford / Eclectic


With the improving weather more and more Seniors are waking from their Winter hibernation and playing golf.

Today's contest was as close as ever with three players achieving par or better, well done!

Who is this?







 


Have you heard this one ?


"You in the back of the room, what was the date of the signing of the Magna Carta?"

"I dunno."

"You don't? Well let's try this. Who was Bonny Prince Charlie?"

"I dunno."

"Well, tell me what the Tennis Court Oath was?"

"I dunno."

"I assigned this stuff last Friday. What were you doing this last weekend?"

"I was out drinking beer and fishing with friends."

"You were? What audacity to stand there and tell me a thing like that? How do you ever expect to pass this course?"

"I don't. I just came in to fix the radiator."

Image result for puzzled golfer


As you walk off the course next time ask yourself the following questions:

Did I enjoy myself?

Have I signed my card?

Did I replace my divots and repair my pitch marks?

You should answer YES to them all!
