Captain's Announcements

As our Captain and Lady Captain have flown to sunnier climes it falls to me to bring you my first blog. It was week one of the winter league, Saturday just gone, and the wintry weather certainly made its presence felt. Understandably, the field of competitors was quite small, but with six or more players putting down a very good score to start their campaign, it is clear that it is going to be a tight and well fought competition. However, this is much more of a marathon than a sprint as the next 22 weeks I'm sure will prove. Well done to all those who took part and ignored the severe weather warnings!

On Sunday I had the pleasure of partnering Sue Charles, the Lady Captain, in the Lambert Trophy, which is a mixed foursomes event. Again although the weather was poor at the start, it abated enough for us to have a relatively dry round of golf. The winners of the event were Jim Craggs and Lucy Bidmead with 38 points. With Neil and Lesley Avent finishing in second place with 35 points.

The Lambert Trophy is actually a photo album which holds pictures of the course from 1973. The event was very well organised by Mark Stevens and Janet Connor. Janet, gave a fascinating insight into the history of the Lambert Trophy and how her modelling career got started! The whole event which included a meal afterwards upstairs, was very enjoyable with good food and good company.

Golfer of the weekend has to be Jim Craggs for finishing third in division one on Saturday and first with partner Lucy Bidmead on Sunday.
News has just come to me via Mark Stevens of the Rabbits Cup played at Bush Hill Park today (Tuesday 15th October). The Winner with a fantastic score of 44 points was Varnavas Christofi, with Graham Corr 2nd with 41 points & Len Palmer nearest the pin on the 16th. Well done to all who took part. Mark reports of a very enjoyable day & superb meal from the Bush Hill Park team afterwards.

Coming to a course near you next week
Winter league week 2!
