AN INTRODUCTION AND INVITATION...
Seniors Matches 2017
The Seniors Matches for 2017 have been announced and listed below. All matches are four ball format, in teams of 12.
The forthcoming season comes on the back of last year's fantastic performance, with the loss of only a single match. Superb effort by all who played, and Davie Wright who lead us. I have taken over the mantle of senior captain and have much to live up to.
Any member aged 55 years and over, with a national handicap, can represent the club in these matches, which are played in a spirit of competitive friendship.
For many years, the team has self-selected on a "first come - first served" basis. This continues, so the first 12 members to put their names on the team sheet are selected. The team sheet will go up 2 weeks before the scheduled match. Reserves are very much appreciated as call offs can and do happen.
Our away match against North Berwick caps the season, and the opportunity to play that course is the seasons "jewel in the crown". As previously, a qualifying process applies. Over the preceding matches, players will receive 1 point for an away match & 2 points for playing a home match. Thus the top 12 points scorers are selected, subject to availability. In the event of a points tally tie the convenor and deputy convenor will finalise the team composition.
I look forward with great pride to my role and the opportunity to meet up with you over the season.
