Seniors Captain - Stephen Pound

I am Stephen Pound and delighted to be the 2016 -17 seniors captain in this our 25th anniversary year. 

We are a very active section meeting Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings for what we call our “fun golf”, besides a number of seniors and veterans competitions scheduled throughout the year. 

We also have a busy schedule of interclub matches which I hope many of you will support and help us continue in our successes against a number of local clubs.

I extend a warm welcome to any new members; please do not hesitate to contact me or member of the seniors committee if you require any information. I would recommend you also keep a eye on the notice boards for up to date information on forthcoming events as well as using this website.

Stepehen Pound gave a quick overview of the 2017 programme of events. A list of seniors’ matches has been posted on the notice board.



Stephen Pound proposed that the dress code for home matches be relaxed to smart casual.  This was passed by a vote from the attending members of 7 to 5.  However it is expected that a number of away matches will be collar and tie.

Bob Wolfson proposed that the seating arrangements at post match meals at RHGC be discussed with CaterCater.  He asked if tables could be laid in groups of 4 as we played in groups of 4 and if long tables are used they should be set for 12. He also requested they are moved away from the windows as in the full height of summer it was became very hot and the sun made it impossible to see anything.  Alternatively could blinds be put up at the windows. The Captain was asked to put this to the caterers and the club management regarding blinds.

Ian Dickie-Clark reminded the meeting that discussions had taken place at last years AGM and been agreed that the winter league semi final would be match play not Stapleford. Also that the pairs would be drawn as per their final league points positions i.e. team 1 plays team 3 and team 2 plays team 4. The final would then be match play. Stephen Pound apologised that this had not been instigated this year but he forgot.  It was agreed it was too late to change things this years bu the 2017-18 winter league would incorporate this change.

Hamish Mclean thanked the past Captain for a good year and also wished to thank Gerald Kidd and Adrian Haines for their work whilst on the committee.

There being no other business meeting closed at 14.20
