Our Ladies Captain, Marie, was also blessed with good weather for her special day although a bit windy to say the least!.
She had made a special request that all the players should wear a touch of purple and, boy, no one let her down, someone even wore a purple fascinator, yes Rosemary, that was you!
The Gentlemen Starters saw everyone off on the first tee and presented us with a purple pen from the Lady Captain before we all had our photographs taken with the Captain.
The course looked beautiful but, oh dear, did it play long! We really were ready at the halfway for our refreshments which were promptly served to us with a smile by Marie’s church friends.
After our game we all took part in the putting competition and partook of a welcome glass of Pimms before going home to put on our glad rags!
Marie thanked everyone for making her day special and declared it was the best Captain’s Day she had experienced out of the three, at various Clubs, at which she had been Captain.
She then went on to present the prizes with the winner of the Captain’s Prize being Pat Taylor, with a score of 98 - 24 = 74. Many, many congratulations.
