The Christmas luncheon was on December 5. This was well attended by the seniors who were pleased to invite along a great many HLM’s (Honorary Life Members). Guests also included the president of the club John Humphrey and the club captain Warren Dyke. A special invitation went to Ms Zoe Steer the South West Regional Fundraiser for Parkinson's UK, the senior’s captain’s chosen charity. Zoe was presented with a cheque for £2,545. 24 by the captain Jim Edwards.

Eric Heyburn was presented with the Gordon Oliver Cup. This was a new competition created in the memory of Gordon who sadly passed away earlier this year. It was a knock-out competition for the over 80s and was fiercely contested with Eric beating Ray Peer in the final.

Roy Bayliss was presented with a MGC blazer badge. Roy was instrumental in designing the Club motif many years ago when only the Old Course existed. This motif (the head of a horse and cow together with Tom Long’s Post) was incorporated in the new badge.
