Captains Prize – 2017

trophyAnother Captains Weekend completed with tales to tell and the many utterances among others of, if only.
A mix of weather gave us wet and drizzly mornings clearing to sunny afternoons the downside of the brighter afternoons was the wind/ breeze arrived. Added to a still fiery course, super fast greens and sadistic pin placings it was a true challenge and reflected in the CSS being 72 on both days.
Captain Neil and his trusty group of Past Captains assisting as starters on the first day, saw all competitors off the first tee on Saturday, all hoping this was to be their year.
He was in attendance along with his good lady Ann to greet and commiserate with nibbles and drinks, to all competitors passing the Halfway House on second round Sunday. This on top of hosting the Captains Dinner on Saturday night and concluding with the prize presentation on Sunday night deserves an endurance prize.
Now the results,
