Sat 28th/Sun 29th July Captains Weekend at Stoke Rochford GC
When we have just had all the previous weeks of sunshine, what could go wrong!
Wind, Rain and more wind, but that didn’t put off the enthusiasm of both Captains and all of the Guests and Members that turned out to play over the weekend.
Saturday was any combination better ball competition, which also included members being able to invite a guest if they wished.
Good scoring on the day with a best of 46pts from Paul Jackson & Sheila Dugmore and further results as follows:-
1st Paul Jackson & Sheila Dugmore 46pts
2nd Rod & Judy Rawson 40pts
1st Tom Greenfield & Tom Rawson 43pts
2nd Matt Allen & Niall Doubleday 42pts
1st Chris Rowley & June Miller 43pts
Sunday Golf saw the Captains individual tournaments, the Men played an Individual Medal, the Ladies a Stableford and the Guests played a Stableford.
The Rain came early but the members still toughed it out, the Captains were at the half way house to meet the early rises, and everyone had a cheery smile.
The Ladies teed off from 11.56am clad in full waterproofs, and all wearing a smile as they set off and played.
The whole weekend went so well, ending with a full clubhouse on Sunday night for the Prize presentation and Buffet meal.
