It was with some surprise that we discovered the course was fully open today for the Captains’ Drive In. And by 11.30am a large number of members, all dressed like Nanook, but all supporting the Lady Captain, Barbara Newman and the Men’s Captain Davy York, had assembled at the Golf Club to witness the Captains drive off and start the 2013 season. The event was followed by a 9 hole Texas scramble. The closest estimates to the length of the drives were Andy Hope and by coincidence his wife, Judith Hope. Congratulations to both Captains and all the winners at today’s raffle and competition.
And a message from the Lady Captain ” It was great to see everyone who the braved the winter conditions for the Drive In and competition. I am delighted to say my charity ‘Pathways4all’ collected a total of £177.50. Many thanks to everyone for their support and making it such a good day. I am looking forward to some good golf, good weather and some fun in the upcoming season and would like to wish Good Luck to all members.”
