12/11/14 - Lady Captain's Drive In 2014
To welcome our new Lady Captain, 80 members were gathered round
the 10th tee bathed in glorious sunshine. Her entry was a fantastic
idea being towed in on a boat, wearing her oilskins and lifejacket.
Radio in right hand and her trusty 6 iron in left to ward off all
boarders, her arrival was greeted with much mirth and clapping.
After descending from the club coloured boat and divesting
herself of the life jacket, she arrived on the tee where Vice
Captain Shaun Johnston was there to greet her with a beautiful
bouquet of flowers.
Mike Deeley teed up her ball and with her faithful 3 wood she
made a mighty thwack down the fairway, slightly down the right side
near the tag of Wendy Riley (who won the sweep and then donated the
monies to the Lady Captain's chosen charity for the year The
A glass of champagne was then enjoyed.
The competition for the day was a nine hole Stableford and to
accommodate all the ladies, the whole course was used. Following
the competition the Lady Captain treated the members to a glass of
wine with lunch of soup and Maltesers!
A very good day was had by all and best wishes for the rest of
