Captain's Day - Sunday 7th August
Dave Matthews welcomed 96 members to play in his Captain's Day and it turned out to be a very successful day with some exceptional scores for the winners; he also raised £410 for the Captain’s Charity “Combat Stress” with a challenge on the 12th hole. Dave kindly provided refreshments mid round on the 12th as well as a BBQ and a pint after the players had finished their rounds on the 18th, which was much appreciated by all competitors.
The morning started off with light drizzle and a fairly brisk wind and as the day wore on the rain gave way to intermittent sun but the gusts of winds got stronger making it more difficult for scoring. The course played extremely well and although there were some tricky flags this didn’t deter the winners with Jacob Cole playing 7 shots better than his handicap to amass 43 points.
Rob Evans continued his fine recent form as he shot the round of the year to be 4 under gross, returning in 30 shots to make his move on the back nine and claim second place overall. Adam Goddard and Allan Smith were one shot further behind and Tony Bowkett claiming the last spot on the podium with 39 points.
The Ladies turned out to support Dave too and they had their own competition to play for with Ronnie Cresswell shooting 37 points and taking the spoils by a couple of shots from Ladies' Captain Jaqui Wilding with Sarah Parker coming in third another couple of shots further back.
In his speech after the presentations the Captain thanked everyone who helped make the day successful and hoped you all enjoyed your golf and the refreshments provided. Have a good week and we hope to see you all for next week's competitions.
