To say that it was a mixed week weather-wise is an understatement. The Juniors kicked off the week on Sunday in comfortable golfing conditions, dry and not too warm. The Ladies and Midweek Competitions followed suit, however, for those awaiting the big event at the weekend it proved to be a very different story. Saturday morning brought constant rain interspersed with the occasional heavy downpour! Unfortunately this proved all too much for the course and the competition had to be abandoned. The re-scheduled competition went ahead three weeks later and this time it was a great day for golf......warm and sunny and more importantly ......no rain.
The Captain would like to extend his thanks to all those that made the “Captain’s Week” such a great success, particularly the Greens Staff for preparing the course…..twice!, Paul and his team in the clubhouse, all those helpers who provided Half Way House refreshments and sold tickets for the Captain's Charity Raffle.
Congratulations to all prize winners.
