Update from the Captain

Captains Log Star Date September 2018

It was September, the leaves were gold
That’s when our hearts knew that story untold
We were young lovers strolling near
The fountain of love

Wow what a great Captain’s weekend I had, and I d like to thank each and everyone of you who participated and supported me over the weekend, stand up and take a bow, it was just like a great big family reunion, after many twists and turns and pulling of hair out, the field was set to play, split sixes was the order of the day, best stableford score on each hole, from our starter Cathy all the way through to our under valued secretary Martin, the day was run with military precision, my four ball consisted of a harem of very talented lovely ladies and it was a pleasure to play in such relaxed company, by now each and everyone of you would have found out that my partner Gill Ward and I won the day, I understand from reliable sources that this maybe the first time in the club’s history this may have happened, well played Gill for being a part of history.
On the Sunday the traditional captains versus past captains took place, prior to the conflict and after the consumption of several Gin & Tonic’s, the captains team was once more triumphant in this annual event, thank you very much to my team for your participation, the day was rounded off with a magnificent three course evening meal and banter, where your past captain Richard proceeded to eat humble pie (although it was not on the menu), I do hope a fabulous weekend was had by all, and once again I thank you for your kind support.
The ladies section went away on their annual jaunt in mid-August to the Wiltshire Golf Complex, I didn’t ask, and I was not told, what goes on tour, stays on tour,
August Bank Holiday weekend came along, and on the Saturday, bought the climax to the Gents Inter Club Matches, you will have to wait until the AGM to read the final analysis report, Sunday was a total wipe out through the rain, so once again the Golfer non golfer did not take place, onto Monday of the bank holiday, the Divisional Shootouts took place for A,B,C Division, and once again congratulations goes out to all those who took part and well done to the eventual winners of each division, into the afternoon and the Mixed Greensome Competition got underway, the field was full of experience pairings and virgin novices, yours truly included in the later, my partner and I were lucky enough to witness golf of the highest order playing with the eventual winners, Chris and Judy Chilver, well done to you both.
The Curry and Music Night was preceded by a nine hole Texas Scramble, this was organised by Kevin Pickett and Steve Ward in aid of the Captains Charities, they laid down a challenge to all those playing, to beat their medal score or contribute to the Captains Charity, three pairings managed to beat their score, with Richard Burt and Shelley May coming out the eventual winners, so the rest of us, and we all know who we are, just need to step up to the plate and pay our forfeit into the Captains Charity Bottle on the bar in the club house, this was a truly a great evening, with the upstairs bar heaving and throbbing to the sounds of music , banter and laughter, well done to everyone who attended.
A little closer to home, I would just like to thank all those lovely ladies of our great golf club, who along with Steve Ward came to the assistance of my wife when she passed out recently on the course, she is slowly but surely making her recovery.
You all would have seen the posters, tv, table triangles and chalkboard around the golf club, advertising forth coming events, please keep your eyes peeled, here are some dates for your diaries.
