The COVERTS held their inaugural Christmas game and lunch on Friday 17th Dec, with great banter and friendship shared by all.
Martin Allen welcomed John Gubb, who was our guest for the day, thanked those who had arranged the event, and went on to announce the winners of the pre lunch round.
In individual 1st place, John Farnworth. John responded with thanks to everyone involved and that the event had obviously brought the best golf out of him.
In individual 2nd place, John Esam
In Team 1st place, Mike Bonwick, Harwinder Jutla & Huw Foulks.
Martin also thanked the members of our golf club that had played with us over the year, and looked forward to many years of golfing and events with the COVERTS.
In closing the event Ken Mossford, thanked all the catering and bar staff, not only for the days hospitality, but throughout the year.
A warm welcome to Bedfordshire Golf Club, if you are a new member or an existing member wanting to enjoy some midweek golf. Hopefully you have found this on the club’s website or have received this via email or a hard copy from the BGC office. Should you be interested in playing some midweek golf then we would be very happy to welcome you into the group.
Our golfing group was formed at the start of the 1st Covid lockdown period of 2020, from the LBW’s that had been running successfully for many years.
Although we are made up of a core of 25 + seniors, we are certainly not exclusive to seniors, and anybody can join us for a round. We are made up of all levels of golfing abilities, experienced or relatively new to the game.
We play on a Monday, Wednesday & Friday and we would normally meet on the putting green around 8:30 am. (Please verify the current tee off system, with any of the names listed below). Depending on numbers we would normally play in 3 or 4 balls off yellow tees, using our club handicaps. Should you require cards to be signed to obtain a handicap then we can accommodate.
Our golfing aim is enjoyment for all that play with us and social friendship during and after. After the round, most would retire to the clubhouse for refreshments and a chat, but this is in no way compulsory.
As a progressive club, Bedfordshire GC run various competitions and events, and have tee time allocations that may affect the normal running of our group during the week. A percentage of our group will play in a Seniors competition midweek (usually Wednesday’s) should there be one.
Well, that’s a quick introduction, so please feel free to contact any of those named below if you would like to play on Monday, Wednesday or Friday mornings.
