It is an honour to be the Seniors’ Captain of Long Sutton for 2016/17.
I have been a member of this great golf club since 1992 and have enjoyed every moment of my time here. The ever improving course is very senior friendly, not too long and easy walking, however you have to be accurate as the ditches come into play and the greens are small. For a golf lover there is nothing quite like being a member of a club, it’s about playing regular golf on a course you enjoy; but Long Sutton Seniors believe it is more than that, it’s about camaraderie and friendship, sharing a passion and having fun.
If you are over 55, you are welcome to join our Seniors Section for £5 per year. We already have 158 members who compete in our seniors’ competitions on Thursday mornings. We run summer and winter knockout competitions and there is also a friendly roll up on Tuesdays from early morning.
In summer there are about 35 friendly fixtures against other local clubs, on a home and away basis. The accent is on “Good Golf, Good Food and Good Company”, and it affords an inexpensive way to enjoy a variety of other courses in the area.
We are very lucky to have such a fantastic committee; they all give their time very generously to make our Seniors Section such a success.
If you are having a bad day, enjoy the company and the views. After the game, enjoy a drink or a meal prepared by our excellent chefs in our modern clubhouse, where you are sure to be given a friendly welcome; it’s that sort of club.
This year my Charity will be “Pink Champagne” Breast Cancer. Your generous donations into my ‘Blob’ pot will be most welcome and there will be other Charity events during my year.
My thanks to Chris Hockey for inviting me to be his Captain for 2017, an honour I was proud to accept.
My Vice Captain is Jon Searl and we look forward to having a great year of golf at Long Sutton.
