Newark Senior’s 40th Anniversary Dinner Dance

Newark Seniors celebrated 40 years of Seniors golf at their annual Dinner Dance at the Club yesterday evening.
Over 70 members, partners and friends had a great evening with an excellent meal followed by a mix of dancing that would have produced the full range of comments from the Strictly Judges.
Our thanks for making the evening so enjoyable go to the Club staff. Jack and Matt in particular along with Rina our Social Events Organiser and Simon our Club Manager both of whom displayed new talents in keeping tables supplied with food and refreshments along with the rest of the team. Everyone's efforts were very appreciated.
The photographs give a flavour of the occasion.

 Congratulations to Tim Sheffield on his hole-in-one at the 17th on Seniors’ Captain’s Charity Day. The ensuing four points were not enough to threaten the leaderboard, headed by Stan Darby. Despite two blobs, Stan posted 40pts, two clear of Keith Alexander in second place. Sixty three Seniors took part and most bought raffle tickets at a fiver a strip, so the main fundraising effort for Beaumond House got off to a good start.



Bruce Perkins started July 5 as a 28 handicapper, but ended it playing off 24 thanks to ‘the best round of my life’ in the Old Boys Bowl.


Putting like a professional, and holding his cool over the closing holes, Bruce came in with 45pts. He scored no fewer than 26 on the allegedly more difficult front nine. Once again Keith Alexander had to be content with the runner-up spot, this time with 39pts.



Dr John Lucey, Seniors’ Captain in 2010, had a welcome return to form at The Leicestershire Exchange Day to win the Stableford competition with 34pts. His day was not without incident as his internal satnav failed to locate the course and he had to rely on third party help to get there! Not only that, his trolley suffered major malfunction and his clubs had to be stowed in his playing partners’ bags. In the circumstances they were not penalised for carrying more than 14 clubs.



Newark’s Seniors raised a tremendous £6900 for Beaumond House last year, thanks in part to the support of Barclays Bank and Victor Wood, the Kia dealer. Fundraising goes on every month, but it is at this time of year - mid-Summer - that it starts in earnest.

A series of nonsense fines on participants in the recent Exchange Day at The Leicestershire kick-started the process, which continues on Monday July 3 with my Charity Stableford and raffle. With Seniors paying £5 to play, the event is sure to raise a significant sum; meanwhile all Newark’s Members can support the charity by offering raffle prizes or by buying tickets on the day.  Prizes should be left at the Golf Shop for collection by Seniors’ Vice-Captain Keith Martin.


Thank you

James Gilmour, Seniors’ Captain.
