Its a Classic!!!!!!!

Over the course of this summer two teams of 3 pairs and 3 individual pairs from the Seniors Section of the club have taken part in the South Wales Senior Classic Golf Tournament to try and win the Cup, Bowl and Claret Jug respectively.

The teams captained by Gordon Elliott and Tom Askew had mixed fortunes with Tom's team losing out in the early rounds. Gordon's team however won through to the final against Llanishen Golf Club which was played last week at the Grove golf Club. despite a valiant effort they lost out narrowly and were second out of the 64 teams that had originally entered. Congratulations to Captain Gordon, Robbie Roberts, Terry Gorringe, Jeff Roach, Bryan Francis, Eric Francis and Mel Leach who all played their part in reaching the final. They defeated south Pembs, Carmarthen, Clyne, Neath and Pontypridd. Glynhir Club President and next year's Seniors Captain Phil Evans attended the final to support the boys.

In the individual pairs Nigel Lloyd and John Hughes and Robbie Roberts and Eric Francis won through to the final 24 pairs to contest the Claret Jug. Congratulations to them also on their notable achievement.

This tournament has two major aims, one to provide stimulating competitive golf to senior golfers from clubs in South Wales and to raise money for the Wales Air Ambulance. Since its inception over £60,000 has been raised which has helped to save as many as 20 lives. This year's competition alone raised £7000 for this worthy cause.

In the past the club had achieved a 3rd place finish and it is hoped that this year's successes will encourage the Senior Section to support this great event for many years to come. Next year Glynhir has already agreed to host the final of the pairs event where 24 pairs will compete to win the coveted Claret Jug. We hope that pairs from the club will again reach the final.
