Celtic Manor proved a tough test for most of us on the 2019 Captain's Away Weekend! As you'd expect there were some excellent scores, and some not so great... especially on The Twenty Ten Course, which certainly proved to be the toughest test and provided a challenge to us all!

Celtic Manor and the Coldra Court Hotel, set within 2000 acres, is certainly one of the most impressive resorts Longcliffe Captain Richard Brind has ever visited. All the staff throughout the weekend, at both the hotel and the golf course, certainly went above and beyond to meet our needs and ensure everything ran smoothly. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and they certainly went the extra mile!

With the weather forecast not looking promising and a heavy rain fall on our drive down, we were fortunate to be blessed with sunshine upon our arrival. With the Sunday rain diverting elsewhere and the resort of Celtic Manor at its finest, the afternoon soon became a haven for golf, especially for the following teams:

1st Place: Jake Crowshaw, Ian Preston, Harry Worden, Dave Russell 77 points
2nd Place: Andy Rumming, Jake Selby, Simon Whittaker, Dick Morley 74 points
3rd Place: Mark Cole, Don Murray, Kyle Bentley, Ian Wood 73 points
4th Place: Chris Marsh, Steve Bentley, Dave Beswick, Andy Wilkinson 72 points
Nearest the pins: Dave Gray, Oli Willson, John Berry.

Following an entertaining Sunday evening which included a jovial speech from our President Arthur Plater and with most guests having a few drinks and catching up on the events of the US Open, The Montgomerie proved a little easier for us all on Monday morning. Apart from the six 'ripped up' score cards that didn't make it home, the following teams however, were a little more successful!

1st Place: Andy Rumming, Phil Wood, Craig Barton, Ian Wood 84 points
2nd Place: Arthur Plater, Dave Hagger, Paul Graveling, Oli Willson 84 points
3rd Place: Mark Cole, Chris Knight, Joe Hudson, Kev Moore 77 points
4th Place: Spook, Jake Selby, Simon Whittaker, Chef 76 points
Nearest the pins: Adam Brind, Kyle Bentley, Dave Hagger.

All in all a superb weekend was had by all! This of course would not have been possible without the help and support of a great team. I would like to express my sincere thanks to you all for attending and in particular to Mark Bailey, Andy Harding (Vice Captain), Mark Bond, Chris Knight, Rob Walker and Vicki Brind.

Captain Rich Brind was joined by nine past Captains who all enjoyed the weekend and the event also managed to raise in excess of £300 for The Captain's Charity!!!

Many thanks once again to all who participated.

Captain Rich Brind
