As with all golf clubs in the UK coronarvirus has also had a major effect on Royal St. Davids Golf Club. Of course the Seniors section has been no exception and we had to cancel all events from lockdown on March 23rd through to July 7th. We then managed our first summer event and produced a revised fixture list (see below) to run all of our summer Seniors glassware competitions. The major casualty from our original fixture list has been the cancellation of all our inter club Seniors matches against our neighbouring golf clubs. It is hoped to recommence our matches in 2021.
The club has a very active seniors section (members over 55), usually meeting every Tuesday and Friday. If you haven’t yet considered joining us I hope that I can tempt you to do so. The summer competitions will continue until the end of September and as you will see from the revised fixture list we then move onto our winter competitions, the Winter League and the Hefin Jones Trophy. The former a drawn pairs competition over 8 rounds and the latter an individual stableford competition over 6 rounds, all commencing in November.
To enable us to work safely within the coronorvirus rules entries to all competitions are made by sending an email to the Seniors Organiser (ROYW23@sky.com) advising which dates you wish to play. A draw for partners is made a few days before the competition and the starting list is then put onto the club’s website booking system. You are required to turn up for play at least 15 minutes prior to your tee time. Following your round you will be able to obtain food and drinks from the bar. Results are posted a few days after each event.
If I can tempt you to join us for the remainder of the summer or for the winter fixtures you will be made very welcome by our members. For more information you can contact Roy Wildgoose, the Seniors’ Organiser or Graham Perch this year’s Seniors’ Skipper both of whom will be happy to give you all the information that you may require.
