Paul Hickey (men's captain), Sian Soanes (ladies captain) and Brian Grace (standing in for seniors captain John Day) got proceedings under way with the traditional tee-shots down the 13th fairway. The winning pegs were from Denise Matthews, Phil Knight and Paul Hickey.
Thirty-six players then played an 18 Hole Stableford with a shotgun start for the Captains Cup. Three-quarters of the way through the round, the players were called off the course whilst some lightning cleared away, then back out again to complete the round. Unfortunately, the last few holes for most were played in some very heavy showers making scoring very challenging. But, this didn't dampen the spirits of the hardy racecourse players!!
The winner of the Captains Cup today was John Baron with a very worthy 39pts. Runner-up was Jeremy Twaits just two points adrift followed by Phil Knight (36pts) in 3rd place. Full result - click here.
The longest drive prizes went to Jason Allum and Fay Unsworth, with Fay also collecting the nearest-the pin prize. Thanks to all who took part and raised £265 for today's chosen charity - The Willow Foundation.
