Senior Golfers’ Society at St Enodoc

The Senior Golfers’ Society made their annual pilgrimage to St Enodoc this week for a match against our Seniors on Thursday and playing for the Rex Machin Salver against the Club on Friday in a match that was first played in 1946.

As seems to be the norm rain intervened and prevented the match from going ahead on Thursday morning. Luckily the office were able to fit players into tee times later in the day for some friendly games instead. Following drinks at the Gairdners who have hosted pre-dinner drinks for about 20 years, the players and their partners enjoyed a sumptuous three course meal upstairs in the dining room. Speeches from Club Captain, Caroline Hume-Kendall, Senior Golfers’ Society Captain, Andrew Gray, and Match Manager, Humphrey Claxton were followed by Roy Hunt entertaining us all on his Banjolele. A wonderful evening had by all.

The Friday morning foursomes match was played in excellent spirits with some impressive golf too. Andrew thanked the Club for its very generous hospitality and Caroline presented him with the Rex Machin Salver, the Senior Golfers’ Society having retained the Salver beating the Club 3.5 – 2.5.

Thanks to Humphrey Claxton for the organisation of the proceedings, wishing all the best to Hugh Maurice for the future as he assumes the mantle of organiser for the SEGC leg of the SGS South West trip. We look forward to welcoming Senior Golfers’ Society back in 2025.
