Mr. Captain's away-day
Mr. Captain's away-day was held at Turton Golf Club near Bolton on July 14. It was a
charming moorland course and proved to be quite a challenge for most of us. We had coffee and bacon buns on arrival and then played an 8 hole Texas Scramble in teams of three. This was won by David Crayston, Jamie Vernon and Mr. Vice-Captain ( Derek Middleton) shown in the photograph receiving their prize from Mr. Captain. After sandwiches and chips for lunch we tackled the course again, this time playing a singles stableford. Ian Whittle won this with a fantastic score of 39. Second was Pop Rogerson with 34 (acpo) and third Philip Mashiter also with 34. Mr. Captain then treated us to a few "from the diary" after which we had a lovely three course meal. All those present seemed to have enjoyed the day and we made our way home, some more tired than others..
