Captain’s Drive In Report & photos

At 10:30 am on Saturday 1st November, 112 (well 111 as one did not turn up!) golfers teed off to start the Captain’s “Drive in” Texas Scramble. The day was uncharacteristically warm and sunny, and the course was in superb condition thanks to the hard work of the green keepers during the morning.

The 28 teams successfully marshalled themselves around the course and the round was completed in around 4 hours, a credit to the scheduling skills of Norman Banfield and the proficiency of the participating golfers.

The spread of scores was between 66.3 and 56.7, but the winning 56.7 was a couple of shots ahead of the others. A much deserved win for the team of Alan Pilkington, Franco Calandrini, Wayne Parks and Nigel Pugson. Well done.

Following the match a very sociable hour was spent over soup and a roll and a drop of light refreshment! The Captain’s, Sylvie Coache Tucker, Colin Hardaway, Tyler Lennox Gordon and myself all then proceeded to the first tee, and surrounded by a sizeable crowd drove ourselves into our Captaincies.

My drive was a very creditable 221 yards, a distance that was guessed correctly by Jamie Brodie who collected a bottle of whiskey for his trouble.

The event raised £95.00 from the drive in guesses, and £272 from the raffle, which together with donations received from the Ryder Cup and the B and C team away days means that over £500 has so far been raised for the Captain’s and Club Charity, St Margaret’s Hospice.

My thanks to everyone who supported the event and helped to make the day a success.
