Captain's Newsletter - 15 Apr 2018

Pearson Team at Brocket Hall

So, we set out on a another week of Springtime!

On Saturday the course had dried out enough for all to take part in the Captains Drive In. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with excellent grub after and a fair amount of banter! Everyone put a tee in the ground where they thought the Captains Drives would land....how wrong most of them were! Should have known better than to put them in the fairway!

On Monday the Pearson team took on Brocket Hall at their place. The rain just kept on coming and Brocket came out the winners 5 - 2. Congratulations for giving it a really good shot girls, the conditions were appalling...although I gather the tea afterwards was worth playing for....!🍰

It was not a great day for playing matches and as the greens flooded at Chesfield in the afternoon, Virginia and yours truly took on Aldwickbury Park in a scratch foursomes match in the Powell Cup. Unfortunately we were soundly beaten....but there’s always next year!

The rest of the week was not that good for golfing either, the course being completely closed on Tuesday and then, fog on Thursday coupled with the earlier waterlogging lead to the cancellation of the April midweek Stableford!

However at the end of another miserable week the weather fairies tell me that next week really will be better. We have the rearranged Australian Spoons on Tuesday and the Jubilee Jug on Thursday so get your shorts and your fake tan out! Don’t forget there will be a raffle on Thursday for the Air Ambulance so please bring an extra £1 or 2 with you. Please pay in the usual way for the event - £12 to include afternoon tea.

Just as a footnote to this, Jo Wilson invited the section Captains to play at Woburn on Friday. She kindly offered up a prize for a couple of NTP holes. At the 6th I managed to win the prize but from about 3 feet I managed to 4 putt, much to the amusement of all, especially one young James Wilson!!! I felt the need to mention this before he told everyone in the club!! That’s golf James....but thanks to you and your family for hosting a lovely day.

And on that note, remember, when playing a match, always concede the fourth putt!!😀
