Seniors National Pairs Championship – A Home Hole-In-One for Nick 
 
Our National Seniors Pairs Champions, Nick Serrecchia and Mark Lewin started the defence of their title in April of this year. 
 
They safely navigated through the early rounds getting past some tricky opponents and golf courses!! 
 
In the fourth round they were drawn against a pair from Langdon Hills. On a glorious day at Bedfordshire Golf Club our intrepid pair knew they had a battle on their hands when their opponents won the 4th and 5th to bring the match back to all square. On the 6th, with the green keepers and other members kindly stopping to watch, the pair from Langdon Hills found the green from the white tees to put further pressure on the home pair. Ever one to step up to the challenge, Nick then pitched his ball onto the well-watered green and his ball rolled a few yards forward before dropping for Hole-In-One! 
 
That wrenched the initiative back and made all the difference in the match, with Nick and Mark never looked back from this point to pull off a 3&2 win to march on to the last 16. 
 
We wish both of them the best of luck in the next round.

2018 Senior Section Charity Open Day 
in Aid of the Willen Hospice Charitable Trust 
 
After much deliberation and many last minute entries the day was, by all measures, a great success. The open and flexible format led to significantly more entries than previous years with a total of 84 on the day. Captain Tim organised some fantastic prizes including a round for 4 at Woburn Golf club. There was also a raffle and an auction which raised significant amounts of money for the charity – a total of over £2,000 on the day. 
 
As for the competition results: 
 
1st Phil Rajotte & Tim Leniham 44 pts 
2nd Peter Hancock & Hetti Weerasinghe 43pts (on count back) 
3rd Nick Serrecchia & Mark Lewin 43pts (on count back) 
4th Richard Suthers & Robbie Brown 43pts (on count back) 
5th Martin Allen & Adrian Lennox-Lamb 43pts (on count back)

Tim would like to thank the committee for all their help, guests and members for entering and contributing so much to the day. We would also like to express our gratitude to the club, the catering staff, bar, our admin team and our green keepers for our wonderful course. 
 
Seniors Invitation Day - June 2017 
Seniors Invitation Day was a great success. With very high temperatures of up to 30C the field was a bit smaller than normal, but still had 26 pairs involved. This allowed continuous movement around the course and meant no hold ups on tees, which would have been a challenge for many, given the high temperatures and lack of wind. 
 
10 pairs scored over 40 points which is quite amazing given the heat. Feedback from guests and members indicated that they had an excellent, well organised and managed day, with good food, lovely cakes from the Half Way hut and plenty of cold drinks! 
Seniors Invitation Day Winning Pairs: 
1. Mick Field & John Ingram – 47 points 
2. Nick Sparrow & Liam Cummins – 44 points 
3. Barry Sullivan & Derek Page – 42 points 
26 Pairs Entered (10 Pairs scoring over 40 points)
