Congratulations to the winning team of Nick Love, Philip Blaubach, Lesley Blumberg and Laurence Blumberg (pictured above with Captains' Liisa McDougall and Phil Matthews) for their triumph in this year's Captains' Cross Country competition. Played over Alan Drake's 18 hole composite course design, their combined net score of 51.5 was enough to see them take top spot from second placed team consisting of Paul Mutton, Will Sneddon, Chris Mullarkey and Yvonne McSherry who scored net 52.7.

Following on from the morning's golf, the afternoon Open Day BBQ saw many from the local community come along to sample the Golf Club's delights. Head Pro David Wilton and Junior Organiser Martin Hegarty were both busy running taster sessions for the youngsters (that's once we managed to get them off the bouncy castle - the kids that is, not David and Martin!), this gave the parents the chance to sit back and enjoy a jug or two of Pimms whilst Carly McCarron provided the music for a perfect sunny afternoon.

Many thanks to those of you who donated prizes towards the raffle, Phil and Liisa are pleased to announce that over £800.00 was raised over the course of the day which included both member and non-member donations. Thank you all for your generosity, we will inform the raffle winners in due course.
