Despite the dreadful weather, and the excesses of New Year's Eve celebrations, a large number of members and guests turned out to witness the 'Red Arrows' .....disguised as golf buggies...... make their way down the 18th fairway, trailing red, white and blue smoke, towards the 1st tee to welcome in our new Captains for 2017. Club Captain Dave Vosper, who had worked at RAF Coningsby, provided the inspiration for the theme for our 2017 Drive In. Dave led the way with the first drive followed by Ladies Captain, Carol Devonport, Seniors Captain, Bill Sutton and Junior Captain, Chris Mee.
The sale of pegs raised nearly £400 towards this years’ Captains Charities and in a bid to disguise his identity, Martin Downing shaved off his longstanding moustache to raise money. Please give him your support. As usual the clubhouse was buzzing with all enjoying the refreshments laid on by Paul and the formalities of speeches and blazer presentations.
We wish Dave, Carol, Bill and Chris every success in their Captains' year.
