Double Bother Day - In Remembrance of Bruce Millar

The inaugural “Double Bother” trophy in memory and tribute to our friend Bruce Millar and other seniors no longer with us  was held on Tuesday 31 October and 18 seniors set out armed with just three clubs and a putter to do battle on a bright and warm Autumn morning. The golf was declared to be "swearing restricted" with a fine for each inadvertent oath and it was very clear that good humour was the order of the day

.While our men were on the course Steve had completed the "blind pairs "draw and when all returned to the clubhouse and handed in their cards some fairly simple arithmetic confirmed that the winning pair was George Taylor and - the man in form -  Peter Gibson, with an aggregate score of 64 points.



A great Folke morning, completed by one of Lisa's extra special cottage pies and a short and simple ceremony when a shrub was planted on the course in memory of Bruce. Swear fines, donations and "toss a pound " to win a box of golf balls (that belonged to Bruce but never used by him) raised £60 for the British Heart Foundation. Well done to everyone- and further evidence that our club is rather special!

Shrubs were planted in memory of Bruce Millar and Ann Brace

Breakfast Stableford - 9 November

On a dull overcast morning sixteen hungry seniors set out on the front nine with happy thoughts of the wonderful hot Breakfast Buffet that awaited their return to the clubhouse. And indeed it was a splendid feast (you know it is good food when the staff eat there!) although the additional ballast over the back nine holes was tricky to cope with for some of the players. Nonetheless, everyone made it back to the clubhouse and the when scores were checked the winner was Ian Tinsley with 36 points. Norman McCabe was second with 35 and Terry and Ned had 33. The raffle raised a further £42 for the British Heart Foundation that will be added to the total from previous events and the cheque will be presented to the BHF on Senior Christmas Stableford day. Big thanks to Captain Mike, Lisa, Steve and the Centre Staff for another great day at Folke.

The Winning West Team

The Annual East v West competition took place on another dull and chilly morning. For this event the players living west of the Folke/Goathill/Milborne Port/Charlton Horethorne road do battle with those living on the East side. Creative accounting is used to compensate for uneven numbers of players in each side. No one could remember the required match format so this years’ competition was deemed to be a stableford match. The match was followed by a chips and sausage basket meal and when the scores were added up the West Team had won once again. Captain Mike presented the Compass Trophy to the winning captain Mike Burt. The highest scorers in each of the  teams were Paul Fletcher and Geoff Bannister.
