The weather interfered with The Captains’ Drive In as only 15 holes were open. However all 22 teams enjoyed the competition with a shotgun start.

Players and spectators gathered at the 1st Tee to watch Lewis Wickham (Juniors’ Captain), Philippa Gowen (Ladies’ Captain), Simon Harris (Seniors’ Captain) and Tina Davies (Club Captain) drive off.  Three captains had good drives and the nerveless Junior Captain hit a magnificent long drive straight up the middle of the fairway.

A great team of volunteers from across the club helped the captains with registration of competitors, Mulligan collection, score card verification, and earlier fundraising. A sum of £600 was raised which went towards the club irrigation fund.

1st Men’s: Dean Hamilton, Michael Metcalfe, Phil Spring and Richard Sheard (70 points).

1st Ladies: Erica Klim, Katrina Foote, Sandy Heath and Jill Bocquet (55 points).
