New Year Eve Party
Seniors Captain vs Vice Captain Match – November 2nd 2021
On a beautiful November day in bright sunshine and light winds, the annual Seniors Captain vs Vice Captain match took place over the Brownlow course.
48 Seniors took part and then enjoyed a light lunch of Bangers & Mash.
The matches were mostly closely fought and all enjoyed their competitive matches.
The result was a disappointment for the Captain both losing his own game, and the overall match 8 – 4 to the Vice Captain’s team.
Thanks to all who played and we look forward to the Seniors Stableford #3 on Tuesday 9th November.
