Suffolk Seniors form-2022

Suffolk Senior Ladies ‘Get-together’ – Thursday 17 March 2022

At last we have been able to meet!  Organised for March 2020 – cancelled!  Organised for March 2021 – cancelled!  Organised for March 2022 – 3rd time lucky!!

36 ladies met at Ipswich Golf Club for a pre-season get-together and social golf.  It was great to see everyone altogether at last and to introduce new senior ladies to the rest of the group.  The place was abuzz with lively chatter and, after sandwiches and coffee were devoured, we headed off out on the course.

We played a 4BBB format with 2 out the 4 scores to count on each hole.  Well done to the team of Jude Hanner, Ali Martin, Jura Davies and Liz Bezance who came in with a whopping 86 points, 9 ahead of the team of Rita Fossey, Mariette Robbertse, Suvanne Harding and Sharon Davey who had 77 points.  They came in second on countback from Fiona Ferrie, Vanessa Adams, Tisha Mortlock and Gillian Smith.

We all had great fun on a beautiful spring day.   Many thanks must go to all at Ipswich Golf Club for allowing us to host this event there.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the course which, even though it had been ‘Course Renovation Week’ was in great condition with fast greens!  The sandwiches and cake were delicious!  A thoroughly enjoyable day all round.

The season ahead:
Some of you may know already that we have formed an East Region Senior Women’s League.  At the moment this comprises of Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Hertfordshire.  We are hoping that Bedfordshire and Cambs & Hunts will join in the future.  As this is the first year we are trialling the format:  6 singles off scratch and also the scoring of straight matchplay and Hambro and we will see what works best at the end of the season.

So we will have 3 league matches and we will also be playing friendly matches against Bedfordshire and Cambs & Hunts as well as the Suffolk Junior Girls and the Norfolk Vets.  In addition we are in the process of organising a match with the Suffolk Senior men in October.

The match dates are:
Wed 1 June (12:00):  v Suffolk Junior Girls @ Ipswich
Mon 20 June (1pm):  v Hertfordshire @ Bury St Edmunds
Thu 14 July (11am):  v Cambs & Hunts @ Brampton Park
Tue 30 Aug (time tbc):  v Essex @ Wanstead
Wed 7 Sep (11am): v Norfolk Vets @ Dunston Hall

Suffolk Seniors v Hertfordshire Seniors

At East Herts Golf Club on 11th October 2021


This is a new fixture and one that we are hoping to continue.  Although most of us had a longish journey it was very much worth it.  The welcome was warm and friendly and the course was a good challenge.  It was playing long but the greens were rolling beautifully.  The matches were close, competitive but friendly; the first match went to the final putt on the final green and the last group had a well fought half!  A good day was had by all.  Thanks to East Herts for hosting us and to Aly Nezda, Herts Seniors Captain, for organising the day.

Suffolk Ladies Seniors v Norfolk Ladies Seniors
At Great Yarmouth & Caister GC on 4th October 2021


What a day!  Clear skies for the most past but a truly bracing wind making the golf very challenging.  None of the team had played the course before and negotiating the links style holes was a difficulty that not many of us mastered, as the results showed, even though we felt we had mostly played well.    Well done Tessa Summers who, fresh from Scotland, played magnificently!  As always, though, we had a very enjoyable and friendly match.  Hopefully we will be able to get our revenge next year!

Thank you to Great Yarmouth & Caister for hosting us and to Nicki Wylie, Norfolk Seniors Captain, for organising it all.

Suffolk Ladies Seniors  v  Suffolk Vets at Rushmere

Friday 1 October 2021

Well we arrived at Rushmere in torrential rain and sat drinking coffee whilst it poured down, watching the 9th green develop more and more puddles.  Weather Apps were consulted and the radar showed there was a chance that the rain would stop before not too long so we agreed we would wait and see.  It was the right decision as the certainly did stop and we were able to set out not too long after our original start time.

As always the match with the Vets is keenly contested in a very friendly atmosphere.  The course had held up from the rain and many thanks to the green staff who squeegeed the greens for us and they proved to be fast and true.  Unfortunately we came a gallant second but the matches were close, coming down to a long putt holed here and there to win a hole.  Well done to the team, some of whom had to give quite a few shots to an ‘in form’ Vets team.  This is always a fun fixture and today did not disappoint.

Thank you to Rushmere for hosting us admirably – a great day!

Suffolk Ladies Seniors v Norfolk Vets – Thursday 30 September at Diss

We had a worrying run-up to this match which had already been postponed from May (I wonder why!!!).  For a time it was touch and go as to whether the match would go ahead as some people were having difficulty sourcing petrol due to the shortage.  Well done to all those who queued up for supplies on both teams so that the match could go ahead!
It was a blustery, showery day making conditions tricky; the wind often blowing across the fairway which didn’t help when trying to hit tricky greens.  There were some close matches, 2 going to the 18th, and excellent golf on both sides.  Long putts and chips were holed, unfortunately for us from the Norfolk team!
Thanks must go to Diss for being excellent hosts, the course played well and the greens were running smoothly.  Our food afterwards was plentiful and tasty.

Suffolk Senior Ladies v Bedfordshire Senior Ladies

16 September ’21 at Flempton Golf Club
At last we have played our first match of 2021 and since 2019, our match with the Suffolk Junior Girls being cancelled due to COVID and our match with Cambs & Hunts postponed until mid October.
Excellent weather was organised for our match against the Bedfordshire Seniors and we played in glorious sunshine!  The course at Flempton was in excellent condition and we were all given a warm welcome by the club.  All the matches were close; we played 4BBB off handicap and 3 matches went to the 18th and the other was only won on the 17th!  A friendly, competitive atmosphere prevailed and all had great games.  The match was followed by an excellent meal and all agreed that Flempton was definitely a club to be revisited.
