Captain's Day Report & Winners
First to the golf and thank you to all the players who took part in the Captains Day competition and congratulations to all the winners especially to Junior Captain Sam Clarke who scored a superb 41 points. The weather was fantastic and thank you to Dave Knight, John Padfield and Frank Pengelly who helped turn the clock back 25 years to a Vivary Park 4 ball. Total age only about 270 years!!
My thanks to Jonny and the greenstaff for setting up the course and a big thank you to Norman Banfield for being there all day running the competition and getting the results out quickly before the presentation. Thank you to Andrew for sorting the prizes and setting up the prize table. A special thanks to Alex Radwell who ran the putting competition and also to Sandra Ford and Bill Walker who took over to give Alex a break from the relentless sun.
On to the evening where a big thank you goes to George and Roger and their staff for putting on a excellent meal and to Francesca and her team for keeping the fluids flowing after a hot and draining round of golf. Thank you to all who came in the evening and the only downside was Italy beating England. But at least singer Lui went home happy! The day raised over £400 for St. Margaret’s Hospice with the raffle selling skills of Carly being a big factor. Once again thank you to all who played and gave support in the evening.
P S. Thank you to taxi driver Graham who took the stragglers home but also lost some who were walking!

TOM WATSON @ Senior Open Championship ROYAL PORTHCAWL JULY 24th-27th
A chance to see Tom Watson, one of the all-time golfing greats. He will achieve a lifelong ambition in July when he sets foot on Welsh soil for the first time in the Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex at Royal Porthcawl.
The 64 year old US Ryder Cup Captain had always hoped to find time to play the classic Welsh course during one of his many trips to Britain and Ireland around the time of The Open Championship but never managed to make the first tee.
However, with Wales hosting a Senior Major Championship for the first time from July 24-27, Watson will finally have the opportunity to sample Royal Porthcawl’s majesty and the man with five Opens and three Senior Open titles to his name, remarked: “Now I can check Porthcawl off my ‘bucket’ list!”
