The weather was favourable for the Captain's Drive In, rather cool and breezy but no rain thankfully. Thirty teams of 4 for a best 3 from 4 shotgun start Stableford meant the course was extremely busy but most teams were able to complete their round in 4 to 4.5 hours and everyone had a great day.
After returning to the clubhouse Cris and Lis served sandwiches and chips to all players whilst cards were reviewed and scores totted up. New Captains Darrell Knight & Jane White then went to the 1st tee and hit their ceremonial drives pretty much straight down the middle. The two lucky winners who guessed where each drive would finish were Jake Gibbons & strangely enough Brian White, Jane's husband - no collusion there then!
Returning to the clubhouse winning teams were announced as below :-
- 1st place nett : Kev Bond / Dave Esswood / Richard M Baker / Jon Duffy 122 points
- 2nd place nett : Gareth Tamblyn-Jones / Graeme North / Mike Jackson / Adrian Redmond 115 points
- 3rd place nett : Luke McGuinness / James Burton / Gary Scullion / Kevin Hyland 114 points
- 4th place nett : Peter Gill / Gary Skerritt / Peter Mills / Eddie Malloy 113 points
SRGC's new Captains then made brief speeches thanking everyone for coming and asking for support for their charity fund raising ideas over the next year.
