Secretary Report: 

Both Carlyon & Newquay contacted regarding drainage restrictions - no response as yet!

Club Sec asked if we can change St Austell 21 July as Triangular match clashes at Looe.

Functional Manual review. To include policy on late entry to competitions and info on OP BB. Remove option of paying by cheque – little used and burdensome. So 3 options cash or bank transfer in advance or cash on the day. Revised version of FM will be circulated to all committee before going live.

Decision: 1. Approach St Austell for rearrangement or consider breakfast before play to take

                     pressure off kitchen.

In the Bank £2078.69. In Cash £180.22. Pay-out percentage since last meeting (Oct) 67%.

The treasurer is seeking a mid-term review with Mr Roger Jones to investigate a minor issue.





Media & Marketing Members Report

DW reported that the total cost of launching the website and running for one year, including the purchase of Looeseniors.com, was £102.51. However, as he has recruited 4 x financial supporters the cost was recovered plus an additional amount to go to the Captain’s Charity.

In addition, several seniors members had already used the contact facility to volunteer for Seniors Team Matches

Decision: M&M to continue Web Site development – adding pages as required and updating existing pages.









Seniors Open 2022:

This has already been advertised on Golf Empire @ £16 Entrance Fee! 4 visitors have booked in! Discussion on ideas for 2022 started. It soon became apparent that this year’s event was to be somewhat grander than previous years, with events and sponsorship creating funds for the Air Ambulance Charity. The Sec stated that the club has rules regarding sponsorship and that we should seek permission from the owner prior to serious planning.

Decision: Meeting to be held with Mr Tilbrook at earliest opportunity to enable us to plan!

Post Meeting note: Mr Tilbrook is happy for us to go ahead as planned, next Committee meeting shortly.







Capt, Sec,M&M


Birch Ward Trophy. (Charity Event) Planned for 14th June 2022

Due to the close proximity of this competition to the completion of the drainage works due to complete 6th June it was decided not to consider the expansion of this event until 2023.





Seniors Away Day. (Captain to Lead)

All go for Ashbury with deposit being paid by end of January.

Decision: Email regarding single rooms and final price to be distributed.


Capt & Treas


Any Other Business.

  1. Seniors Shirts. Cost will be £25 each and will be available soon.
  2. A survey carried out by Dave Allen has suggested that a social evening may well be a welcome addition to the Seniors Programme. (32 surveyed, 23 for)

Decision: Dave agreed and accepted the invitation to form a sub-committee with co-opted members, to consider what format and when this could take place and advise committee at next meeting.

Members Agenda Items.

2    One question from a member asked about the longevity of these shirts with the Air Ambulance logo embroidered on them. The annual Buckland Rowe trophy supports the Air Ambulance, the committee decided that this was insufficient reason to change the design at this late stage.





Past Capt & Sub
