Following the Captain’s Greensomes competition, we had the Captains’ drive-in. The event was piped in with an excellent bagpipe rendition from James Young.
Firstly, we had Thomas Gibbs, Junior Captain, who hit a great shot of 219 yards with a challenging wind.
Then came the Ladies’ Captain, Di Hegarty, who after hitting another exploding golf ball, still managed to hit a drive of 154 yards just off the fairway, closely watched by club professional, Robert Joyce.
Finally, Graham Popple, 2018 Club Captain, managed a drive of 208 yards. The sweep stake for the length of his drive was won by our Course Director, Bryan Howarth for the 3rd year running, who again donated the winnings to the Captain’s charities.
We then all moved into the clubhouse for the unveiling of the Junior & Club Captains names on the wall boards.
The event was well supported, with everyone enjoying a drink and a portion of fish & chips.
