Captain’s away day was on the 27th of May, this year was an exchange between Newark golf club and Kings Lynn golf club in west Norfolk.

The coach departed at 8.30am from Newark golf club, arriving at Kings Lynn at about 10am bacon roll and coffee and a friendly welcome from the club catering manager Carl, was just what we needed after the coach journey.

The competition was a singles stableford.

The sun was shining and everyone was looking forward to discover what was hidden in the woodland beyond the clubhouse in this top 100 course in the country.

Well, this magnificent setting soon showed what it had to offer, a very challenging course with elevated undulating greens and narrow tree-lined fairways that only straight shots was the order of the day and no partner to rely on, it was just a personal battle.

But it was all smiles analysing the round afterwards with a pint on the patio overlooking the 18th green.

An excellent 3 course Dinner and coffee was enjoyed by everyone.

Followed by the captain’s speech and prize presentation.

Many thanks to everybody that took part on this special day, thank you  to Mr Charlie Lager for his efforts in handing out the fines, all with laughs in aid of the captains charity, collected in fines was £185.51 with other donations of £65 making a total of £250.51 raised on the day.
