After a two-year hiatus, the Seniors gathered to celebrate their achievements at the 2023 Trophy Presentation and Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The Seniors AGM day began with a 15-hole stableford competition in challenging windy conditions. Neil Dickinson emerged as the champion of the competition with 30 points.

Gareth Davies emerged as a star of the day, clinching The Clifton John Memorial Trophy for his impressive performance in The Order of Merit (Under 75) category. Ian Williams secured The Tenby Seniors Cup, while Geoff Aston stood tall as the champion in The Ken Goldsborough Bowl for The Order of Merit (Over 75). Aston also doubled his joy by winning The Colin Griffiths Trophy in the Best Net Eclectic (Over 75) category.

Mick Seal won the Des Stone Trophy for Best Gross Eclectic (Under 75). Robin Hagley’s performance earned him The Allen Watts Trophy in the Best Gross Eclectic (Over 75) category, which was presented by none other than Allen Watts himself. Bob Forrest bagged The John Cook Memorial Trophy, and Tony Andrews received The Mel Neale Memorial Trophy, which was presented by his long-standing playing partner, Keith Hubbard. In a poignant moment, Tony Andrews, whose playing partner Gareth Thomas was unable to attend, proudly received The Tommy Hutton Bowl.

It was a heart warming event for the Seniors as it marked the return of in-person gatherings after the pandemic-related restrictions that had kept them apart for two long years. The seniors expressed their gratitude to be back on the course and to continue their long-standing tradition of competition and camaraderie.

Following the competition, 39 members enjoyed a delightful sit-down lunch in the new Club Room. The meal consisted of a delicious one-course offering of hake or venison sausages. Duncan and his team received praise for their excellent, fast, and friendly service.

The newly constructed Club Room was the ideal setting for the trophy presentation and the AGM that followed. The seniors gathered to celebrate their achievements and discuss the future of the association. It was unanimously agreed that the room’s character and appeal would be greatly enhanced with the upcoming installation of a new trophy cabinet and a wall-mounted Past Seniors Captains Board.
