FOR THE WEEKLY NEWSPAGE PLEASE SCROLL DOWN

Trial for Thursday morning Seniors  The Tee will be reserved

If Seniors take the opportunity to play as early as possible with a reserved tee time, this will not only give them a clear run at the first nine holes but returning to the 10th tee will result in a clearer back nine with fewer general players.

This goes against Sudbrook Moor's policy of having the Tee open at all times so anyone can just turn up and play but we think this will make things better for all concerned early on Thursday mornings.


Continuing and refining Seniors having the 1st Tee Reserved until approximately 8.30am on Thursdays. (slightly later on dark winter mornings).

The aim being to make play more efficient on Thursday mornings in response to the oft cited complaint of "SLOW PLAY". Please note this is not to make people rush around the course, far from it, but to structure the starting to make best use of the time.
Also, players will be able to play in their normal groups for the most part. However, there is al 
so the opportunity to play with different players. It is the intention to make it more of a Draw for partners on the first and third Thursdays of the month for the White Tee events.
The consensus at the moment is that it is working much better than the old "free for all" on the First Tee.
Thank you to Pete Armstrong for responding to this Tee Reservation offer from the Proprietors. Please continue to give him your feedback and support.

Ladies v Senior Gents

Tuesday 2nd April


Annual Greensomes Matchplay

The promise of a rain-soaked day for the annual matchplay between the Ladies and the Senior Gents had a dampening effect on the eventual turn-out.  For some, the cloud burst at the exact moment of the start was not an inviting prospect, while some were determined to make the journey to the club worthwhile.  There were no complaints amongst the adjusted ties, and four matches brought home the most convivial of results.   Lead match, Senior Vice-Captain Steve Squires and Past Captain Graham Mackinder went One Down to determined Amanda Roberts and Karren Dearlove.  Chris Wilmot and Clive Winters squeezed a One Up finish after a nip and tuck game with Sue Watson and Sheila Nelson.  A strong encounter between playing partners Sue Chambers and Sheila Cutmore finished One Up for the girls facing Senior Captain Mick Massingham and Club Treasurer Colin Henfrey.   In an adjustment to cope with the change in numbers of participants, a final singles match yielded Bryan Heydinger a One Up success against Chris Thompson, with the final putt turning Chris’ near half into Bryan’s appropriate win for the Gents, and thus a friendly 2 – 2 halved result for the record books.

SINGLETON STABLEFORD TROPHY

WON BY STUART MINTER WITH A BRILLIANT 46 POINTS


MONDAY 18TH MARCH - 

CAPTAIN'S TEAM VERSUS VICE-CAPTAIN'S TEAM

A WONDERFUL HALVED MATCH FOR MICK AND STEVE

RESULT :  4 -- 4

Tuning up before the Inter-Club League season gets underway, the Seniors have met for a practice 4ball betterball matchplay encounter.  In a friendly but highly competitive format of drawn pairings and ties, the Senior Captain’s team took on the Vice-Captain’s team. Under the experienced scrutiny of Captain Mick Massingham and Vice-Captain Steve Squires, the challenge was played from the Championship tees, as a means to the team selection for the Seniors’ first fixture. The final score was a very happy halved match, 4 - 4.  Winning partnerships were Steve Squires and Graham Mackinder, Nigel Corby and Dick Marshall, Barry Kay and Bob Watson, David Wainwright and Mike Carelton, Ted Johnson and Tim Newbery, Barry Rohland and Andy Milner, Stuart Minter and David Guy and John Chatburn and Chris Wilmot.  Six of the 8 matches went to either the 17th or 18th hole, suggesting much of the golf was of “a thriller” quality, as confirmed by the post-game discussions.  There had been an immensely positive atmosphere and the unanimous feeling that the experience had been both beneficial and hugely enjoyable.  Other seniors involved in the match – Pete Farmer, Pete Fallat, Frank Brumpton, John Costall, Trevor Whatton, Tony Rose, Roy Nelson, Colin Henfrey, Alan Cuthbertson, Sue Watson, Mick Massingham, Tony Davies, Mick Beasley and Harry Cutmore.

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN.  A GREAT START TO MICK'S CHARITY FUND - THE NEO NATAL UNIT AT THE QMC NOTINGHAM


The HUGE cheque of £1284-20 was presented at the Seniors' AGM on MONDAY 14TH JANUARY - REPORTED BELOW -

The “Big Neonatal Appeal” of the Nottingham University Hospitals has benefited from the year-long support of the Sudbrook Moor Senior golfers.  The massive sum of £1,284.20 has accumulated from a small section of the club membership, with the steady drip of weekly donations, two bumper raffles, several fun challenges of “Beat Ben Hutton, the Professional” and generous individual gifts.  Charity representative, Neve Cairns, travelled from the University Hospital to receive the donation from Senior Captain, Mick Massingham, and his family members.  Mick’s daughter in law, Deborah, and grandson Alexander also visited the golf club to meet both Neve and the seniors, who had congregated for their January AGM.   Mum Deborah and baby Alexander were part of the cheque presentation, in gratitude to the Neonatal Unit having provided life-saving care at the start of Alexander’s life, just over a year ago.  Neve thanked the senior golfers for helping the 1500 babies who every year receive tailored care at Nottingham Hospital.  State of the art equipment, research and family support are all possible through these charity donations.  Extra hospital improvements are available for premature and sick babies, their parents and families, at times of difficulty and emotional suffering.  Senior Captain Mick thanked his fellow golfers for their magnificent support and will be remaining in office through 2019.  After only three weeks, Mick’s continued charity appeal has already got off to a sparkling start for Nottingham’s “Big Neonatal Appeal.”

SENIOR CAPTAIN AND VICE

Tim and Judith are delighted to announce Senior Captain, Mick Massingham, has agreed to continue in Office through 2019, ably supported by the newly appointed Senior Vice-Captain, Steve Squires.                                                                                 

We thank Mick for his leadership and dedicated service during 2018 and wish him well for a further 12 months.  Meanwhile, Steve will be working quietly alongside Mick, preparing (being prepared) for a “take-over” in January 2020.

END OF 2017


David's Charity Target has been surpassed - not £1,000 but you have all done amazingly, with a generous and enthusiastic GRAND TOTAL of having reached £1,122-22.  It has been discussed and unanimously agreed to send donations as follows -

£900 to Alzheimers Research, £100 to LIVES and £122-22 to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire AirAmbulance Charity Trust.

In the photo below, 2017 Captain, David Guy, completed his Charity Year by presenting a share-out of the grand total.  Left to right, David Guy, Jeannie Priest representing The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire AirAmbulance Charity Trust, Mike Francis and Linda Kingston from LIVES, and Matt Clarke from Alzheimers Research UK.
