18 intrepid ladies braved the elements on 19th August for Captain’s Day. The ladies played an individual medal round and a team competition. And Julie Smyth won a special award for the player going into the water and bunkers the most.
Money was collected for the Lady Captain’s Charity “The Mulberry Centre”. The monies collected on Sunday will add to the Â£570 already donated this year.
The caption competition was won by Ros Gray. The subject was the Captains, Jon and Cheryl, looking down the 18th hole with the camera looking out of the hole. And the winning caption “Look it’s Lena”.
Lena Kenny fought off this slight, by winning the “Spot the Captains’ Balls” on the putting green. The solution is on the notice board.
Nearest the pins on Duke’s 3rd hole and 16th were won by Maureen Slade and Julie Smith respectively.
The team competition was won by Angela Flynn, Ros Gray, Lia Donath and Veronica Mitchell.

Refreshments were enjoyed by all after the event into the early evening when the rain held off and we were able to socialise outside.
Initial inclement conditions ameliorated allowing good scoring in particular from Toby Hunt 1st with net 67 and Ian Smith 68.
The balance of play delivered CSS one lower than SSS at 69. Men’s handicap list…
