A large crowd gathered to witness the 2019 Captain drive-in on 29 September. Graham successfully overcame a large amount of encouragement in the form jeers and miscellaneous sounds. After waiting for the noise to subside he successfully drove the ball straight down the fairway for 206 yards (Graham insists it must have plugged!), which was greeted with much applause. Earlier in the day members had competed for the Captain's Driver which was won by Jon Copley and Michael Stainton on +8. The weather remained kind for the competition and although there was a downpour just as the event finished although the rain was considerate enough to stop whilst Graham drove-in. Following the drive-in around 70 guests sat down to an excellent dinner served in the restaurant. Debbie, Simon, Roy, Sonya and the staff did a great job and the meal was enjoyed by all. Graham presented The President's wife and the Vice-Captain's wife with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. He did not forget Sue Charles, who is the 2019 Lady Captain, also received a bouquet from the Captain. We all wish Sue and Graham a very successful year!
