Captain's Announcements

Sunday the 5th January saw the first Fourball draw of the year with 24 participants in which Danny and I had a Captain and pro challenge against David Boothroyd & Jack Bidmead. I hadn't played for three weeks so was a bit rusty but with a little help from the Pro we managed to draw on the 18th with a birdie from Danny. The course is still a lit...

Captain's Announcements

Unfortunately not much to report this week. Due to the heavy rainfall we've had over the last few weeks the course had been closed as it is water logged. The Christmas season is in full swing starting with the Dinner Dance on the 14th. This was a great event with a DJ/Martin Magic Kevin keeping us on our toes with his tricks and sleight of han...

Captain's Announcements

Saturday saw the Annual Children's Christmas Party which I attended in my usual going out gear. It was amazing when I entered the restaurant how the children reacted, they really seemed to think I was the real Father Christmas. It was an event I thoroughly enjoyed.Sunday Ray Ripsher organised the Turkey Trot, not as well supported as I'd hoped but ...

Captain's Announcements

Evening all,Another trying day at the coalface starting with the Captain and Pro challenge. This was against big hitting Ray Ripsher and Iain 'steady Eddie' Lanario. Danny has already divulged the result so I won't bore you with the score. It appears that I have acquired a new nickname - not Big G, as I was last year, but Steinway as Danny was stru...

Captain's Announcements

Before I start I would like to thank my Vice Captain, Iain Lanario, for holding the fort while I was away. He did an admirable job, especially at the Four Ball Draw. Well done. Quite soon after my return from holiday, Danny and I had our first Captain and Pro challenge against Richard Empson and Mark Watts, two single handicap golfers. I'm not goin...
