Team prize: - highest average score - 32.25 points
Bryan Clutterbuck, Alan Partridge, Peter Hooper, Mike Sheppard
Highest stableford score Bryan Clutterbuck - 37 points

Longest Drive - Lyndon Cheal
Club Charity Xmas Night - Weds. 21st December
We are pleased to report that the event raised over £600 for the club charities.
To achieve the necessary ticket sales we had to make it more of an overall club event rather than just a Senior's one.
Here's a posting Derek Bryant the Senior's Captain made on the SVGC facebook site shortly after:
To everyone who supported the Club Xmas Charity Night last week.
Terry Cole our entertainer who did an excellent job keeping the music and dancing going.

Members of our Senior Committee taking the bets - Rob Cook, Alan Gregg, Barry Jenkins and Mike Newell
Alison Powlesland our Ladies Captain for adjudicating on some very close race finishes and organising the raffle.
Our race sponsors: A1 Lofts - Connor Wilkins, Mark Sanders and Darren Thorne, Mike Newell, Sunday League, Scotty Gates - Simon Scott, and C-Team Supreme - Keith Parker.
All those that bought individual race runners.
Everyone who donated prizes for the raffle - there seemed to be more prizes than raffle tickets!!
Ryan and his team for making sure we didn't go thirsty and Debbie for the excellent buffet.
I'm pleased to report we raised £623 towards the Club Charities - Darren's Bristol and Beyond Asbestos Family Support, Alison's and the Senior's Great Western Air Ambulance Charities

Congratulations to Ian Haddon on winning the trophy on a course where the pin positions were very tricky, with a commendable 38 points.
Partnered by Malcolm Gray and Derek Bryant, Ian started well with a birdie 3 points on the first and was unlucky to lip out on the second for a par. 21 points on the front 9, coupled with 17 points on the back 9 made Ian the winner by one point over Dennis Foster and Albert Charlton

|Seniors Mini Break - 14/15 Aug 2016|
The excellent parkland course at Puckrup Hall Golf Club is proof that a course does not have to measure in excess of 6000 odd yards in order to leave you breathless because this one will leaving you positively gasping. In the best possible way, of course, as the stunning setting alone for it is enough to leave you needing to catch your breath.
From here, you can enjoy majestic views of the surrounding countryside and plenty of green, luxurious looking countryside also.
On the course, you can rest assured you are going to be presented with a whole host of challenges that virtually beg you to take them on. Display some good course management, sound club selection and you could score well.

Captain's comment: On a very muggy hot day SVGC Seniors defeated Thornbury 6 - 1 in a match where old acquaintances were renewed. Derek Bryant playing against an old football team mate and Mike Newell reliving life in the civil service nearly 30 years ago with an ex colleague. Dave Christopher was making a final guest appearance for the team, also playing against an old acquaintance - 7 June 2016
