Are you new to this area?

Looking for a friendly place to play golf?

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

 

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

 

 

This door will always open for golfers of any standard.



 

 

We are open again, bookings are being taken!

7 days ahead for members, 4 days for non-members!

 

 

 


 


 

 

 

  

 

 

Make sure you know the right handicap for each tee!


 

Instaed of calling the toilet 'The John' I call mine 'The Jim.'

It sounds better when you say you are going to the Jim in the morning!



Roll up.


Twelve Seniors 'rolled up' this week and played a best of three game - only the best shot counted!

As expected there were some low scores.

The winning team of Stuart, Linda and Mike.

Linda had the best round of the day carding a nett 56 - well done!



 Hospitality.

With restrictions being lifted more and more there is the opportunity to take greater advantages of what the clubhouse has to offer.

 

 

Why not stay after your round, or just drop by and spend a few minutes relaxing.......a Pimms perhaps?

 



 

Weekly Fees.
This will probably commence on July 30th if there are not too many objections.It has been proposed that the weekly fee be increased by £1 (to £5) in return for a 'free' coffee. Those that Ray has spoken to so far seem to be in agreement but if you do object please let him know asap.



 

Match v Bassett Down - Home 23rd July.

The lads put up a brave fight but went down 3 - 2.

Ah well, there is always next year (Or is there?)

 

 



 

Captains' Charity Day.

 

 

 

 

 Forty three players supported our Captain, we needed them, on a dull overcast day. There were numerous prizes to be won after Mike got us underway!

 

 

First prize of the day was to estimate where his drive would finish and this went to Bill Field. 

Nearest the pin prizes were won by Stuart Brunsden on the first, Graham Bradfield on the third and Mike King on the fifth.

 

Nigel Hart had set up a 'Beat the Pro' contest on the seventh and he was only beaten by three players. Nearest the pin here for a Star Prize of a Wilson Golf Bag was Dessie Major. (Dessie kindly donated this to the Charity and it was raffled off after the event raising an extra £90, thank you!)

 

The competition itself was won by Linda Vale with  total of 43 Stableford points.

Our Congratulations.

{Full result on the main website.}

 

 

The Raffle was won by Keith Endersby who opted for the Mystery prize rather than the cash and this turned out to be a Gliding experience.

(I wonder if he would rather have had the cash?)

 

A most pleasant day for a deserving cause.



  

We are back to golf now and hopefully enjoying it, but.............

 

STAY SAFE!


Players are back on the course so please look after it even when we get in some tricky situations!

 

 

 

Sometimes the golf is so bad you just have to get away!

 

 

 



 

 

Next week.


#######  Yee - Haw, it's a Texas Scramble  #######

 

 

  



 

 

 Start Time!  

 

Booking is possible on line now.

 

Golf - Teeing Off

 

 

 

 

 


 

Who is this?

 


Nice easy one for you this week!

 

 

 

 



 

 

Have you heard this one ?

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat.

As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.

He soon realized She was heading straight towards his seat.

As fate would have it, she took The seat right beside his.

Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, “Business trip or pleasure?”

She turned, smiled and said, “Business. I’m going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston."

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen Sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs!

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, “What’s your Business at this convention?”

Lecturer,” she responded. “I use information that I have learned from my Personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality.”

Really?” he said. “And what kind of myths are there?”

Well,” she explained, “one popular myth is that African-American men are The most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is That Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is Scotsmen who are the best. I have also discovered that the lover with Absolutely the best stamina is the Irish

Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed.. “I’m Sorry,” she said, “I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don’t Even know your name.”

Tonto,” the man said, “Tonto McTavish but my friends call me Paddy".


 

 

 

Who said?

 

Every round I play I shorten my life by two years!

 

Was it:

 

a) Tommy Nakajima

b) Isao Aoke    or

c) Shigeki Maruyama?

49   Keith Keer  Malcolm Sheppard  Dave Milsom  Gordon Neale

There is no game next week as it is The Captains Charity game. You can sign up either at the pro shop or online for the game and raffle tickets are available in the bar. This is a very worthy charity so please give Mike all the support you can.

 

The next Deans game is on 4th August and please let me know by 3rd August if you can’t make it.

 

I don't know why the Deans were so popular last week but they certainly had a few wings fluttering on the 8th!

 

 


 


 

 

Nigel Connor has finalised his group away to Old Thorns on August 11th/12th.

A group of 8 will be battling it out for the Cloisters Cup!




Stay safe!

 

 

 

 

 

Next week, who knows?

 

 

 



 

 

Did I?

Play Golf?????

 

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!
