Captains Charity Day 2017
A gloomy start and a glorious finish! 56 players took part in our annual ‘Captains Charity Fun Day’ on Sunday 1st October. The day started a little wet, but an optimistic attitude prevailed, the weather improved and 14 teams completed the front 9, stableford, with the best two scores. Our winners this year as photographed below were Tom Packham, Jake Boddie, Terry Smith and Andrew Watson.
Following a delicious buffet lunch, prepared by our in-house chef, Phil, the much anticipated ‘Auction’ commenced. A great selection of products and supplies were on offer from enjoying a cream tea at Café Elvira’s, learning to drive with Peter Moxon or Andy Holden, attending a Christmas Race Day or enjoying a massage from our Toto.
In addition, a considerable number of green fee vouchers were available from a good selection of local and not so local clubs. Overall the day was a huge success, made possible due to the enthusiastic support of our club members and of course from the Captains themselves.
The grand sum of £4979 will allow the club to purchase a defibrillator and associated training costs, with the balance going to our chosen charity for the year ‘Action for Deafness’
