It's not the arrival of swallows that is the first sign of summer, its the Men and Lady Captain's Drive In at Parklands Golf Club which is the clear sign that the season is about to begin. The event was well attended and the Captains, Anne Hope and Grahame Bell, did not let the members down and there were no nerves on show, as they both sent spectacular drives down the first fairway. The Drive In was followed by a 13 hole 'pink ball' competition and this competition was closely contested. The day raised £239 for the Captain's Charity 'Help for Heroes' which included personal donations from Lynne and Cheryl from the kitchens, Sean Renwick and Danny Hall. Our thanks for these donations and also for all the members and guests who bought raffle tickets. A great day, with weather to match … well done to all the helpers who made the day happen and good luck to our 2012 Captains.
