Captains Day 2022 was held this year at Thorpeness GC in Suffolk courtesy of our Captain Peter Fairs. A really good turn out of 40 golfers enjoyed a great day in mixed weather conditions on a
splendid golf course. We were also very well looked after by Penny Fairs and Monika Storey at the 8th hole where they provided a selection of hot and cold drinks and home made cakes.
Buggies were generously provided by Paul Tuckwell so a big thank you to him.
Many golfers found that being straight was the order of the day or you could easily find yourself exploring the numerous gorse bushes lining just about every hole. If the gorse didn't get you the bunkers certainly did so for those golfers who scored well they certainly played well and the winner of The Claret Jug Trophy for the second year in a row playing off 9h/cap and scoring a magnificent 39 points was John Dornan (pictured above).
The full results for the day can be found on the "Results" page.
Thorpeness GC did a great job of looking after us with bacon rolls before golf and a very nice 2 x course dinner prior to prize-giving accompanied by wine courtesy of our Captain Peter Fairs.
One of the many joys of the day was being able to listen to a nightingale singing from the trees behind the 10th green.
The next event in our diary is one of the favourites for many in our golfing season, The Berkshire. Clearly one of the top golf clubs in the country with 2 x splendid courses, our days at The
Berkshire have often been memorable and a real favourite amongst our Members.
Entries will soon be drawing to a close so anyone interested in attending should contact Merv Foulds ASAP
