Ross Golf Club’s largest section of members, the men seniors has been further enhanced since the age qualification was reduced to 55+.

With their annual programme of events and activities in the capable hands of an energetic committee with Seniors Captain, Colin Price, at the helm, their 2020 season has started in earnest. There were 72 entrants taking part in a customary three Club’s and Putter 16 holes stableford competition.

Not for the first time, many discovered that they can be equally effective armed with a handful of golf clubs rather than a bagful and Tim Lewis found himself at the very top of this category.

In Division 2 handicaps 17+ Tim Lewis was miles ahead of his nearest challenger with Seniors Vice Captain, Nigel Gibbs, surprising himself in claiming second place with 36 points followed by David Morgan with 35 points.

However, achieving a top four place in the final league table will prove worthwhile as they partake in semi final/final knock-out matches to determine the inaugural winners of the John Price Trophy instigated by Seniors Captain, Colin in memory of his Dad who is still remembered with considerable fondness.

In his role Colin is setting a marvellous ‘collective spirit’ example as evidenced when, within days of receiving notifications, the seniors annual dinner in March was declared ‘sold-out’.

The 82 present will not only be able to enjoy the catering facilities provided by the Ross Club’s valued Boucher Catering family but be amusingly entertained by Dick Brice one of the best Forest of Dean song-writers, who is also affectionately well known in the Ross area for his poetry and silly stories.
