Sunday 23rd April – Captain’s Day
The decision to postpone Captain’s Day by a week due to inclement weather proved to be a wise one as a field of 27 players enjoyed a fine morning’s golf and superb hospitality in the clubhouse afterwards. The day being more about fun than serious golf we played a Stableford from the yellow and red tees that was a ‘non counter’ for handicap purposes and perhaps the relaxed atmosphere helped to generate some fine scoring with the top 9 players beating par figures and the top three bettering 40 points. Winner on the day was Dougie Auld whose 43 points just beat Neil “Sonic” Lucas on 42. Charlie Taylor came in as top lady golfer on 37 points, the highlight of her round being a fine 2 at the par 4 15th.
Grateful thanks to WBGC captain Doreen Mainds who provided a generous array of prizes, as well as her renowned Tartan Tablet, and hosted the clubhouse celebrations with aplomb. A real fun day.
