Roy's Poem
Dedicated to the late Roy Jefcoate, this poem was written and recited by David Washington following the evening meal on Captains day 2011.  Please follow the link above.



King Of The Hill

STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN AT LOBDEN ON A SUNDAY IN JUNE
IT COULD BE THE WEATHER OR THE PHASE OF THE MOON
A GROUP OF MIXED GOLFERS TAKE A CLUB AND ONE BALL
THEN CLIMB UP BROWN WARDLE, A TASK NOT TOO SMALL
IS THIS JUST FOR PLEASURE SOME RUN OF THE MILL
NO THIS IS TO CHALLENGE THE ‘ KING OF THE HILL’
 
START FROM THE CAIRN AND TAKE YOUR FIRST SHOT
THEN FOLLOW THE BALL, SET OFF AT A TROT
WITH SPOTTERS ON HAND, THE BALL TO BE SEEN
YOU MAKE YOUR WAY DOWN TOWARDS THE 9TH GREEN
IF YOUR BALL IS LOST YOUR’E OUT OF THE GAME
SO ITS BACK TO THE CLUB YOUR HEAD HELD IN SHAME
 
IF YOUR LUCK HOLDS TRUE THEN THE FLAG IS IN SIGHT
JUST A COUPLE MORE SHOTS THIS COULD BE A GOOD NIGHT
ONTO THE GREEN AND A TAP WITH A ‘PING’
IT’S GONE IN THE HOLE, YOU’VE JUST BEEN CROWNED KING!



By David Washington
