Re: Seniors Competition Booking –

Hi Paul,

I am really sorry to see that you are obviously still having on-going health issues, and I sincerely hope that you will get them resolved through the treatment that you are receiving.

I am sure that you will appreciate that we also need to address how to manage the problem with you booking into competitions and then either withdrawing at a late stage, or on some occasions not turning up without giving any notice.

David Costin and I have previously discussed with you the expectation that you will notify us if you need to withdraw, and it is appreciated that most times you have done in so one way or another.

However, I suggest that we now need to take this expectation a little further, to both fit in with your health situation and to be fair to those members that are affected by your frequent withdrawals.

For future SINGLES competitions we will continue to accept you booking in as you have been doing, and if you have to withdraw at a late stage assume that you will continue to try and let us know.

However, for the PAIRS and TEAMS competitions I am now requesting that you do not book into these competitions in advance. This is to avoid the significant impact that it has on the other members booked into that slot when they suddenly end up as a team of just three players.

Instead of booking into the PAIRS and TEAMS competitions in advance, if on the morning of a PAIRS or TEAM game you decide that you wish to play then you can contact the organisers and ask if there is an available space. For the Monday Club this would usually be David Dandie and David Costin.

I hope that you will agree that this is a reasonable compromise to balance out your personal circumstances with the needs of other members.

I am happy to chat with you if you wish to discuss any aspect of this request, or if you have any suggestions for an alternative approach.

Kind regards

Richard

Re: Putting Workshop – Warm Up –

Thanks for attending the workshop. I hope you found it useful. Below are some warm up ideas gleaned from Phil Keyon himself.
Cheers! David

PUTTING WARM UP (30 Mins)
5 Minutes
find a straight putt inside 8ft. Hit multiple putts;
stepping out of your set up position between each
putt. Rehearse getting into your set up and getting
comfortable. Use an aim reference for first 10 putts (if
you have one) then remove.
10 Minutes
block practice speed with a ladder drill: 3 balls. Move
away from a hole putting uphill at 10ft, 20ft, 30ft and
40ft. Then putt downhill to a hole the same distance
ranges (24 putt total)
5 Minutes
random speed with one ball. Move around the green
and hit different putts from outside 20ft using different
slopes, changing hole for every putt
10 Minutes
Putts at 10ft – 3ft with one ball & full routine. This is
your time to mentally prepare going to the tee box.
Start with a putt from 10ft then move around the hole,
changing the putt angle each time. Move closer to the
hole one-foot each time; finishing at 3ft. Aim to hole
all the putts from 6ft and inside (take another go if you
miss, you have time with 10 minutes allowed for 8
putts)
PUTTING WARM UP (5 Mins)
One ball;
1. Hit 5 different putts from outside 30ft, each to a new hole.
2. At one hole, hit a 20ft, 15ft, & 10ft putt, changing the angle to hole
each putt (move around hole)
3. Move to a new hole and hit an 8ft, 6ft & 4ft putt changing the
angle to the hole for each putt
4. Finish with two 5ft putts (one left to right and one right to left
break) and finally two 3ft putts; one downhill and one uphill.

Re: Putting Workshop Wed 24th May –

Hello Gentlemen, just a reminder of the forthcoming Putting Workshop you signed up for next Wednesday.

I will speak with Will Davies tomorrow to check final details.

We are due to start at 2pm and run until 3pm. There are 12 of us so should get some good attention from ‘The Man’!

The weather is for sunshine, a light breeze and light showers with only a 21% chance of rain at that time.

Please pay you £5 fee to the shop before we start.

See you Wednesday and good luck tomorrow!

Re: Winter Pairs Final –

Hi Marco, well done on the win!

I wondered if I could please ask you to pen a quick resume of the highlights of the match?

I ‘d like to give a very brief summary in my Captain’s Comments sheet. Rather than just congratulations but a flavour of the ‘battle’!

e.g. an astonishing drive by PF, a 30 foot putt from yourself with your trusty Odessey – a brilliant pin point approach from MD or another down the middle fairway finder from SD etc etc….. whatever

Many thanks! David

‘Main Menu’
‘Matches’
‘Registered Players’
Choose your name from the drop down field and click ‘View’ to see your entries.

I am reasonably confident that all your original entries will be visible, but if not, unfortunately you will have to re-enter any missing matches.

Re: Winter Pairs Competition –

To: Mick Duffy, Marco Kefer, David Dandie & John Tyrrell

Re: Winter Pairs Competition

I wish to confirm that due to unresolved difficulties in arranging an alternative match date within an acceptable time frame the result of your match is that Mick Duffy & Marco Kefer go through on concession.

I appreciate that this is not an ideal situation but there has to be a limitation on the timescale for these matches and when members sign up for the Winter Pairs competition this is made clear in the rules.

As Competition Secretary it is my role to assess any situation like this and reach a decision on the appropriate outcome. I can assure you that I have done this to the best of my ability and have consulted with fellow committee members to help me reach a balanced decision.

Re: Xmas Monday Club – Event Fee –

Hi Gents,

This email has been sent to relevant members who are currently signed up for the Seniors Christmas Monday Club event on Monday, 18th December 2023.

The closing date for payment of the event fee was today, 4th December.

Unfortunately, with the cancellation of the Monday Club competition both last week and this week we have missed out on the opportunity to catch up with you to obtain your payment.

I will be obliged to confirm the numbers for the event with the centre within the next day or so.

What would be helpful would be a confirmation from you that you are still committed to playing in the event, and that you will pay your event fee either next Monday (preferable) or at least pay on the day of the event.

Alternatively, you could do a bank transfer to me (bank details below) and I will pay your fee on your behalf via the Seniors card system.

However, If you now wish to withdraw from the event then please advise me asap.

Re: Christmas Monday Club – Changes –

Christmas Monday Club – Changes

It has necessary to make a couple of changes to the original format of the Christmas Monday Club event being held on Monday, 18th December 2023.

The start time (Shotgun Start) will now be at 9:00am (originally 8:30am) and we will be playing 18 holes on the Par 3 Course (originally front 9 of both courses).

With these changes the presentation/meal will now commence at 1:00pm upstairs in the Course View restaurant. The event is anticipated to conclude at approximately 2:30pm.

These changes have been made following a review with the Centre management due to concerns raised regarding blocking both courses for 4 hours.

I trust that the amended arrangements are acceptable to all members who have booked into this event. If however you do have any issues with the changes then please could you contact me directly to discuss them.

Many thanks

Richard Hone
Seniors Competition Secretary

On the Seniors website click on COMPETITIONS -> Competitions Information. This will show you all the information and links to Christmas Monday Club options.

If you haven’t yet done so … please enter your menu choices before 4th Dec. Anyone who has not entered their choices by then will be allocated the default choice of Soup, Turkey & Xmas Pudding.

Also, the £25 event fee should be paid by 4th Dec please.

Re: Obituary –

We have been informed today that Paul Jefferson has passed away after a long illness. Paul was one of the founding members of Ramsdale when it first opened. He has been supportive of the Seniors Section for many years, and in 2012 was elected Captain. He will be sorely missed by everyone, and in particular his long time golfing partners; Bob Colson, Barrie Moore and Phil Rankin.

Our condolences to all his family. We will announce details of the funeral arrangements in due course.
