Seniors - Final tournament from 12 October 2023
and result of the Race to Hoch-Ybrig 2023

The last senior tournament of the season was also held in very good, warm golfing weather. A glance at the slopes, which are usually resplendent in glorious autumn colours at this time of year, shows that this year is different. There is still almost no trace of colour.



In keeping with the beautiful weather, many excellent results were once again achieved. A number of players achieved a net score of 36 or more points.

After the lavish aperitif outside and the delicious autumnal main course in the restaurant, our captain Urs was able to hand out a few gifts in the form of flowers and high-proof liquids as a heartfelt thank you for the good cooperation. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team in the secretariat and the cleaning service, the restaurant team with service and kitchen and, of course, the greenkeepers and rangers. They have all made a very enjoyable season possible for us. Thank you!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Bruno Inauen addressed a few words to our large group and thanked all the seniors for their numerous participations and in particular the captain's team for organising the many events. We are already looking forward to the next season.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the ranking ceremony and prize-giving:

In addition, the next best participants each received a prize in the form of vouchers for a season or day ticket. Many thanks to Wendel and Hoch-Ybrig AG for the generous prizes.

There will be another chance next year! We are all looking forward to it.

The award recipients in good spirits:


Finally, we were treated to 2 metres of crème slices for dessert and we were able to bring the season to a cosy close.

 


 

 Seniors - Club Championship from 28 September 2023

45 senior citizens took part in the 2023 Senior Club Championships. In wonderfully sunny, very warm autumn weather, the 2023 senior club champion was played in 3-person flights in single stroke play (with a maximum par plus four). The golf course in Ybrig is in good condition. Accordingly, good results were achieved.

Eric Güller and Patrik Etter played the best rounds ex aequo with 75 strokes, with Eric being crowned the new senior club champion due to the better back holes. Congratulations to him! Eric was able to accept the trophy and a nice prize sponsored by the Senior Club Champion 2022 Michi Donabauer. Many thanks Michi!

Wendel Keller shone with a very good round in the net classification with 65 net strokes.

Seniors friendship meeting with seniors GC Unterengstringen from 14 September 2023

A total of 20 guests accepted our invitation to the friendship meeting at our beautiful golf course, which presented itself in wonderful late summer weather. The sun peeped through from time to time, it was often a little cloudy with a mild temperature, and above all: not a drop of rain.
We played four ball better ball according to Stableford, with the first flight consisting of four Ybriger seniors, otherwise we always managed to place a guest and a Ybriger in the two-man teams.
It was a very successful event and everyone was delighted. You could really feel the joy of the players during the game and at the aperitif and dinner afterwards. Wonderful. The results were also impressive:

The lucky winners received a prize:



1. gross: Wendelin Keller / Louis Wehrle (30 gross, 47 net)

Senior tournament from 31 August 2023

 Today's tournament was once again a "normal" single Stableford over 18 holes. The weather was also normal once again, a little cool in autumn, but good golfing weather. There were 34 seniors at the start, 17 each for the older and younger players. After a well-earned aperitif, we were once again able to enjoy a delicious dinner. Before dessert, the ranking was announced and prizes awarded.

Seniors friendship meeting with seniors GC Kyburg from 24 August 2023

We welcomed 25 guests from Kyburg in glorious, hot weather. The game was played in flights of 4 players in the "Swiss PGA Scramble", which is not often played in Ybrig and is not actually a scramble, but a game with a selection drive. After the first shot, a ball was selected, from which each player in the flight then played their ball to the end. However, each player had to contribute at least three tee shots. The scoring was then "4 ball 3 best ball", i.e. only the best three scores on each hole were counted.
It was a very successful event, everyone was enthusiastic. Accordingly, the results were also good.
One team won the gross competition with 97 gross points, while 149 net points were achieved in the net competition.

The ranking list can be downloaded here: Ranking list

At 6 p.m. we were treated to an aperitif outside, where the temperature became very pleasant after the sun went down. A delicious dinner rounded off the beautiful day and after the main course, the prizes were presented to the most successful teams and the winners of the special competitions. Because the predicted thunderstorm came after all, the picture had to be taken indoors. The photo shows only happy faces:

Congratulations to all the winners!

  


Senior tournament on 27 July 2023 - 2nd Ryder Cup

For the second time, the seniors played a Ryder Cup format match. It was once again a complete success with lots of fun on both sides. The competition between the teams "Innerschwyz und Einsiedeln" and "Usserschwyz" was played in dry, very good golfing weather. Eleven flights of four with two players from each team competed against each other in fourballs match play.

The Innerschwyz and Einsiedeln team:


The Usserschwyz team:


There was a hard fight, sometimes right up to the 18th hole, and three flights ended in a draw. In the end, the "Innerschwyz and Einsiedeln" team came out on top with 6.5 to 4.5 points, so the players from this team were each able to collect a bottle of wine as a prize:

There was also a special nearest to the pin competition on two holes, each with a wine prize sponsored by "bona aestimare". The successful players were:
Hole 2 (nearest to the pin):                    Kurt Huser
Hole 16 (nearest to the pin 2nd shot):   Bruno Hilber

Congratulations to the winning team and the nearest to the pin winners.


Senior tournament on 13 July 2023 - Captain's Trophy

The weather officer didn't really know what he wanted at this tournament. For the most part it was dry, but at times the wet did come as a nuisance. 46 seniors played for the Captain's Trophy and the sponsored prizes.
As a special feature, there was a parallel ranking of the participating ASGS members GCY (Swiss Seniors Tour by ASGS).

After a well-earned aperitif outside and a delicious main course in the restaurant, where once again the birdies could be enjoyed on the plate instead of on the scorecard, the captain proceeded to announce the ranking and hand out his beautiful prizes to the winners:

The lucky winners were:

Older:

Senior Triangulaire with Lenzerheide and Bad Ragaz in Lenzerheide from 6 July 2023

At the invitation of Captain Jean-Pierre Göbel of the Lenzerheide Golf Club, 24 GCY seniors travelled to Lenzerheide on 6 July 2023.

We were greeted by the best golfing weather, a beautifully maintained golf course and a warm welcome from the secretariat. Everything was perfectly prepared. Many thanks to all the organisers and helpers!

The starting list showed a somewhat uneven ratio of the three clubs. We had the largest group with 25 players, Lenzerheide had 20 players and Bad Ragaz had 9 players. For this reason, some players from Ybrig had to make do with colleagues from their own club in the flight, but this did not detract from the fun.

Of course, a brief downpour was also part of the programme.

Thanks to the large canopy, the lovely aperitif could also be enjoyed on the terrace. The dinner that followed was excellent. Many thanks for the generous hospitality.

At the prize-giving ceremony, the winning teams were presented with some great prizes, including some from Ybrig.

Senior invitational tournament on 29 June 2023

The invitation tournament for seniors took place on 29 June 2023 in ideal golfing weather. We welcomed 18 guests from various Swiss and foreign golf clubs and ASGI / Migros Golfcard as well as 26 Ybrig seniors. The tournament was played over 18 holes according to the "Four Ball Better Ball" Stableford format.

It was a very successful event, even though the last two flights caught a few drops of rain and unfortunately the aperitif could not be enjoyed outside. After the excellent main course in the restaurant, the prize-giving ceremony took place. Everyone was excited.

The lucky winners were:

Senior tournament on 22 June 2023

Today's tournament took place with threatening clouds and humid but dry weather. Two frontnines were played. The results were impressive. Several players scored 36 or more Stableford points, both among the over-70s and the younger players.
The well-earned aperitif was enjoyed on the terrace, with some participants constantly watching the cloud animation on their mobile phones. With the first drops of rain, we were then able to move into the restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal. Before dessert, the The prize-giving ceremony with distribution of prizes took place. A winners' photo was not taken this time due to the persistent rain.

Senior tournament on 25 May 2023

After the opening tournament for the seniors, planned for 11 May 2023, fell through, the seniors were looking forward to today's tournament all the more. The weather was kind to us, but the course was still soft, so unfortunately the players who rely on a cart were not yet able to play. It should work out next time.
Despite the rule "lay better on the whole course", the results (with exceptions) were rather mediocre, with the older players, for example, winning with 31 Stableford points.
After a well-deserved aperitif and a delicious meal, everyone was eagerly awaiting the ranking announcement and prize distribution.



The lucky winners were:
Older:
1st gross: Ernst Holenstein
1st net: Fredy Kohler

ASGS Team Matchplay Region OST, preliminary round, on Friday, 19 May 2023, against the seniors of GC Unterengstringen at Golf Club Ybrig.

In cold temperatures and heavy ground, 6 senior golfers each from the Ybrig and Unterengstringen GCs battled it out in three flights against each other and the course, which had only been partially mown due to continuous rain. At least it stayed dry from above and the adverse conditions were the same for every pairing.
The guests from Unterengstringen were able to celebrate their victory after the fair match. Congratulations!



After a delicious dinner, everyone remained happy and cheerful.

Seniors - Spring trip from 18 to 21 April 2023
to Piedmont, Italy

32 senior citizens took part in the already legendary spring trip to Piedmont. Perfectly organised by Bruno Hilber, the trip departed early in the morning on 18 April by car and the first flight started at 11.30 a.m. on the GC Castelconturbia. We then travelled on to our accommodation in San Francesco al Campo (TO). The other golf courses played were GC Royal Park I Roveri, GC Torino La Mandria and finally GC Bogogno on the return journey.

At the concluding drinks reception at the Hotel La Perla in San Antonino (TI), Bruno Hilber sadly informed us that this was the last trip he had organised. A pity, but very understandable after the almost countless organisations that he has organised with a great deal of effort and passion. A big thank you and a big round of applause at this point too, dear Bruno. It was simply wonderful!

Seniors - Autumn trip from 15 to 22 October 2022 to Sotogrande, Spain

Nine sun-hungry senior citizens made their way to Spain on 15 October. After a normal flight to Malaga, they travelled by VIP bus to the hotel in Sotogrande.
In very good golfing weather, we played fun tournaments (counting penalty points, scramble, Viennese waltz, bingo bango, bongo, "flag" competition) on six very different courses according to the motto "the last one bites the dogs" ....
There was also plenty of socialising after the games and at aperitifs and dinners at various beautiful locations in the vicinity of the hotel.
On Saturday we were already heading home again, or that was the plan. Swiss "treated" us to an extra night in Malaga because the flight was cancelled shortly before take-off. Getting off the plane again, collecting our luggage, looking for a hotel and restaurant etc. Wouldn't have been necessary!

Many thanks again to Jürg for the organisation and the "tour guide" on site!!!!

A few impressions of the beautiful journey:

Seniors - Final tournament on 13 October 2022
and result of the Race to Hoch-Ybrig 2022

 

The last senior tournament of the season was also held in good golfing weather. Accordingly, many good results were once again achieved.

After the well-earned aperitif and a delicious autumnal main course in the restaurant, our captain Urs was able to hand out a few gifts as a heartfelt thank you for the good cooperation. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team in the secretariat and the cleaning service, the restaurant team with service and kitchen and, of course, the greenkeepers. They have all made a very enjoyable season possible for us.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Bruno Inauen addressed a few words to our large group after the ranking ceremony and thanked all the seniors for their numerous participations and in particular the captain's team for organising the many events. We are already looking forward to the next season.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the ranking announcement and prize distribution,

Result Race to Hoch-Ybrig:
The results of the "Race to Hoch-Ybrig 2022" were then eagerly awaited. A total of seven tournaments were included in this competition throughout the season, with the three best net scores being added together. A total of 83 seniors took part in at least one of these tournaments. The Ranking list can here can be downloaded.


Since it was already known before today's last tournament that our sponsor Wendel was in the lead with 117 points, some had to make a special effort to knock the sponsor out of first place. But they did not succeed! Walter Hubli and Hermann Linder almost made it, both with 116 points. Bravo Wendel!

But what about the prize (a personalised season ticket for Hoch-Ybrig), will it go home with the sponsor? Certainly not, says Wendel generously and makes two suggestions: Give the prize to the captain or raffle it off? The overwhelming majority in the poll decided to give the prize to our captain. In addition, the next best and a few others were each given a day ticket. Many thanks to Wendel and Hoch-Ybrig AG for the generous prizes.


There will be another chance next year!


Seniors - Club Championship from 22 September 2022

48 seniors took part in the 2022 Club Championships. In wonderfully sunny golfing weather, the senior club champion 2022 was played in 3-person flights in single stroke play. The golf course in Ybrig is in perfect condition. Some very good results were achieved.

Max Steinegger played a fabulous par round with 70 strokes. We congratulated Max Steinegger on winning the day (gross and net) and presented him with the well-deserved prize.

However, an unwritten law of the seniors at Golf Club Ybrig stipulates that only those who compete in at least two senior club tournaments can become club champions. Michi Donabauer was crowned Senior Club Champion 2022 with 76 strokes.

The players rounded off the evening with a delicious aperitif and an exquisite Valais raclette. Many thanks also to Dani Schicker for organising the culinary evening programme (and of course Louis Henseler for his assistance).

Friendship meeting with Senior Golf Unterengstringen on 14 September 2022

On Wednesday, 14 September 2022, we GCY seniors were invited to the now traditional friendship meeting with the seniors of Golf Unterengstringen. Thank you very much for this invitation.

The weather was better than expected, with only a few sprinkles of rain. As soon as the umbrella was open, you could close it again.
The "Four Ball Better Ball, Colour Mix" format (the holes were played in succession from the red, blue, yellow and white tees) made the two rounds on the 9-hole course very varied. A good idea and an interesting experience!

After a good aperitif, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the "NINETEEN", where the senior captain of the Unterengstringers, Peter Studer, announced the ranking and distributed the prizes and also thanked the various sponsors from the ranks of the hosts. We would like to join them in expressing our thanks!

The winners received a prize:
1st gross: Ernst Holenstein and Fritz Neumann
1st net: Alfred Kohler and Urs Muntwyler
2nd net: Beat Grond and Peter Bauer
3rd net: Urs Lienhard and Kurt Brühlhart

The hosts were kind enough to let us have both special classifications:

It was a very successful event, despite the absence of some colleagues who instead competed at the Lägern Golf Club and celebrated their promotion back to Group B at the ASGS Interclub 60+. Congratulations!

As GCY Senior Club Champion 2021, Phil Allington (HCP 10.6) competed against Jörg Roth (HCP 6.6) from OSGC Niederbüren in the 1/8 final at GCC Breitenloo on 10 June 2022.

Phil had a great day in Breitenloo. At beautiful weather he won on an excellent course with 5 on after 14 holes (only 4 to play). Bravo Phil and good luck in the 1/4 final against Lutz Mieschke, GC Breitenloo (HCP 0.9)!


ASGS Team Matchplay Region OST on Friday, 10 June 2022, against the seniors of GCC Zumikon at Golf Club Ybrig.

The pairings for this 1/8 final were very evenly matched. The matches were as close as expected. Playing for the GCY were: Michi Donabauer, Walti Hubli, Ernst Holenstein, Patrick Copery, Paul Oechslin and Wendel Keller. After 6 singles matches, the score was 3:3.
Michi Donabauer faced the play-off against Jean Milot. They shared the first hole on 18. Michi made a miraculous save. Then it was on to hole 10, where Michi missed the decisive putt by a very narrow margin.
Very well fought, dear ASGS colleagues from Golf Club Ybrig!





Senior tournament on 9 June 2022

The weather was not particularly helpful at our second senior tournament of the season. The course was very wet due to recent downpours, but still playable.

Once again, great prizes awaited the best golfers of the day.

Older:
1st gross: Ernst Holenstein
1. Net:  René Meier
