Ladies Captain’s Charity Day
A very succesful Ladies Captain’s Charity day was held in the sunshine on 27 August where over £350 was raised for the Great Orme’s head branch of the RNLI. Ladies Captain, Hilary, thanked everybody who supported the day by taking part in raffles, giving donations and those who played on the course, which was wonderfully presented by Danny and his team of green keepers.
Congratulations to Julie Cowing, who won the 13 hole stableford competition.

Captain’s Drive In 2019
The History of the Captain’s Drive In. The driving-in ceremony pays homage to the early days of some of our more ancient golf clubs when the captain was not selected or elected by the club membership, as is the custom now, but won the title through a golfing competition. The captain would be the champion golfer of the club, a position achieved by winning the annual club championship.
Today, only the Captain, Lady Captain and Junior Captain drive off at our 2nd hole and, in the absence of any other competitors, they are declared the winners of the competitions to find our new captains.
This year our drive in was on Sunday 7 April. All the past Captains came along in their red jackets to see our Captain, Mr David Richardson; Ladies Captain, Mrs Hilary Roberts; Junior Captain, Reuben Bather; and President, Mrs Lorna Walmsley.
