Seniors News - Red Rose

The Seniors Red Rose Veterans Diary has hopefully seen all of the changes completed. For those not aware of recent adjustments they are now shown as (1) Bury at Home now on Wednesday 17th June 2020, 1st Tee Time 11.30am. (2) Longridge at Home now on Thursday 13th August 2020 1st Tee Time 11.00am. A new Red Rose Diary has been posted on the Seniors notice board showing these changes.

Also posted on the notice board will be, a request to those interested in playing in the 2020 League to show their names and current handicap on the list provided. When the list has been fully completed we may be able to organise a pre season get together for a round of golf and a bite to eat afterwards, this is something still in planning stage, and will be posted on the notice board if it is to go ahead.

Working alongside our Club Captain Mr Brian Greenhalgh, I have posted on the Seniors Notice Board a list for the proposed Polo Shirt for the Seniors, would all seniors interested in having a Polo Shirt please identify their name and shirt size on the list.

As we see the month of January out it is always a slow start after the Festive Season. We will  hopefully have a sound grounding with preparations completed for our 2020 Red Rose competitions, and we can make sure everyone is ready for the Golfing Season ahead, I am certainly looking forward to it.

Seniors News - BGA

Following last years success I would like to thank all those who participated in the BGA Deane Seniors competitions. 

Any member, 55 and over, with limits with regards to your handicap, can participate in this, not so serious, competition

The Format:-
We play a different local club every month, home and away, 7 in total.
Each team comprises of six 2 balls (match play)
First Tee time 10.30am
Cost per game is £11 and includes a 2 course meal after the game

It is formal to offer the 3 members of your match a drink when playing at home, this is reciprocated when playing away.

Generally, any player chosen for the home match will automatically be chosen for the away fixture and will normally play the same players.

To enter please check out the Seniors notice board in the entrance foyer where those who are interested in playing can submit their names.

Last year we all turned up in our own attire whereas our competitors wore Team shirts.

There is now a shirt available to purchase that you can wear in both the Red Rose and BGA Seniors teams.  There is a list, in the foyer, asking for your size.

I look forward to you participating for The Deane this coming year
