Seniors – Curly Foster Trophy - December 17th

On Tuesday, December 17th 51 Seniors played in the annual pre-Christmas fun competition, the Curly Foster Trophy. The format is an individual Stableford competition played over 15 holes with only 4 clubs, one of which must be a putter.

The conditions were dry (at last!) and the course has stood up well to the huge amount of rain over the past 6 weeks. The greens were in excellent condition considering the temperature and the amount of rain we’ve had recently.

After the competition the Seniors were led by choirmaster Paul Skelton in singing Christmas carols, including a special 12 days of Christmas with words composed by Andrew Cookson. Mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls were served and a bottle of whisky was kindly donated by the Seniors Vice Captain Tim Stubbs.
