Captain’s Away Day
An early start with a hearty breakfast in the clubhouse and a hastily arranged 9 hole fiddle started a fantastic day of golf followed by an evening of good food, wine and great company.
The coach left Newark Golf Club car park at 11.30am with the majority of players on board, everybody with great plans on how they were going to tackle the former Ryder Cup Course.
On arrival we joined the rest of the competitors who had made their own way; 64 players in total; bathed in sunshine we enjoyed lunch overlooking the 1st tee and 18th green.
1.30pm arrived and my team stepped on to the 1st tee feeling a little nervous, this would soon disappear after The Captain thundered his opening tee shot to the corner of the dogleg, this unfortunately would prove to be the highlight of his round.
The teams continued to go out until 3.30pm and battle commenced, my team arrived back at the clubhouse, washed and changed and ready to watch the drama unfold on the 18th green.
Dinner was served in the main clubhouse and results were announced, big congratulation to Keith, Roger, Craig and Ashley with a fine winning score of 87 points.
Charlie then delivered his now annual register of fines for players who had not conducted themselves in a professional manner on the course; I think we were all on the list for some reason or another.The day came to an end when the coach left Lindrick at 10pm, however the evening continued for some revellers a little later into Saturday morning.
I would like to thank everybody who attended for making it a memorable day and special thank you to Steve Patterson for donating the raffle prizes, Charlie Lager for his comedy routine and Maurice Mayfield for helping me with the cards and prize presentation.
In excess of £550 was raised for this year’s Charity.
