I can hardly believe we have just had our Mens and Ladies Captains day's. When someone said this week "the nights start pulling in soon" I could have cried..
Thankfully despite the poor forecast, the weekend's weather was very kind to us (apart from the last few groups on Sunday's mixed event who got a little wet).
As always there was a fantastic entry on Saturday, and just after 6am Ian was bouncing around like Zebedee from the Magic Roundabout with his final preparations, and he was there to watch the first group tee off at 6.44am.
After watching the first group tee off it was time to start preparing the Half Way House for 200+ visitors. I kindly offered to test any of the food on offer, and having sampled a freshly delivered warm chilli pork pie I was wide awake for the day.
As usual we had our special prize on the 7th, but it appears that our lessons and fittings successes have caused an "own goal", as we had 65 players score a par or better to win 3x TaylorMade balls. Very well done everyone who won balls.
For most of the day young Tom George
was top of the leaderboard with his great score of 40 points, but in the last few groups Jason Carlton
sneaked home with his excellent score of 41 points. Very well done Jason.
The Mixed event
on Sunday was very popular and the Canadian Foursomes proved popular too despite the confusion. Both players would tee off, then each player would hit their partners drive and then the best ball would be played alternately to complete the hole. With a fantastic gross of 76, nett 67, Neil
and Carolyn Francis
stormed to victory. Unlike playing a Texas Scramble there is no stipulation for number of drives used which I understand worked well for team Francis. Only joking Neil and well done the pair of you.
Lady Captains day had the largest entry seen for a number of years which is further testimony for the great momentum with our Ladies section. Carol had a great day, and just like Ian on Saturday, was busy flying around all day.
There was some fantastic scoring on the day and normally Sarah Anderson's
great score of 40 points would look good to claim the winner's prize but not this year. Very well done to Sandra Linaker
whose score of 42 points was very impressive indeed.

The Amazon machine has been out this week as the damp and humid weather has really encouraged some very lush/ thick rough to grow.
