The format is to play in four-balls after which we change, have a bite to eat and socialise with our opponents. I put sign-up sheets for the games on the end of the first bank of lockers as you enter the men’s changing room so take a look next time you visit the club and if you want to join in, sign up!
The first Captain’s friendlies have taken place heralding the onset of summer. Teams of 12 have played at Chevin and Stanedge followed by a home game against Sickleholme. The first game at Chevin on Sunday April 17th was hard fought ending in an honourable draw, 3 games each. Lots of banter after the game over a good meal and a couple of beers made it a thoroughly enjoyable occasion. There was little evidence of the forthcoming summer at the next game at Stanedge on April 27th as, despite starting the game in extremely adverse conditions and battling on for around 30 minutes, the game was snowed off after a few holes!
Our first home game was a complete contrast played on the evening of May 5th versus Sickleholme. It was a lovely warm evening with the sun shining, the course looking great and our guests from Sickleholme really appreciating the course and how it looked and played. They were a really great bunch. Neil and his team provided us with a lovely meal afterwards and winning 5-1 capped off a great evening.
There are Captain’s friendlies played throughout the summer, home and away so members interested in playing should sign up on the notice board in the men’s changing room or feel free to contact me (07798 607767 or at [email protected] ) if they would like to know more.
