Richard Thomas Captains Day - Saturday 11 June


What a great day and evening we all had and our thanks to Richard Thomas, Captain. Richard organised a fun day on the course with some very interesting and challenging pin placements, on every hole, combined with a variety of different tee positions. We were then treated to a very entertaining evening show, hosted by our very own, Lee Burton and special guests who gave us some folk music, shanty songs and a bit of sax thrown in for good measure. To all the volunteers who assisted throughout the day and evening as well Kevin Garwood and Ashley Redford in the Pro-shop for running the days competitions, Will Sands and his team for the on course refreshments, keeping our swings lubricated as well as the excellent hog roast after golf. Finally to Danny Murray and his team who produced two golf courses of the highest order. Congratulations to the winners who were:
