Captain v Vice-Captain Cup
The Captain v Vice-Captain competition was a fun event played over 11 holes with 14 players on each team. The individual stableford points were added up, resulting in the Captain's team outdoing the Vice's team, so Marion Underhill received the Cup from Lorraine Collings. Loes de Kleuver had the best individual score with 19 points.
After the golf we had a cottage pie lunch and that was followed by the draw for all the summer knock-out competitions.
On Shrove Tuesday the Ladies enjoyed a 9 hole yellow ball competition in teams of three. The winning team with a score of 53 points, were Marion Underhill, Christina Francis and Anne Regler. After the golf we all tucked into our pancakes. A raffle was held which raised £80 towards the Captain's charity.
The Captains' drive-in took place on Saturday 7th January 2017. The day started with a shotgun start, 9 hole Texas Scramble followed by a quiz and one course lunch before the drive-in. The three captains, Phil Jefferies, Marion Underhill and Shayne Cann generously donated all the £4,000 raised to the Jamie Mines Fund.
We had our Christmas lunch on Tuesday 13th Dec. It was a great day, playing bingo, a couple of quizzes to get the brain working and a cabaret entertainment which was hilarious, put on by Molly Carey, Sheila Goodbody and Lin Handley.
The 2016 trophy presentation was done after the lunch. The full list and photo on page 2.
