Members of Crow Nest Park Gof Club, Brighouse, travelled back in time to the 1980s to help Shaun Higgins celebrate his Captain’s Day in retro style.
 1980s fancy dress outfits were the order of the evening and there was also a nostalgic flavour to the food that was served up.

Members entered the spirit and dressed up in costumes from the era including characters from Miami Vice and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and pop stars such as Boy George.

Club manager Les Holmes said: “The 2013 Captain’s Day celebrations were a great success.

“The playing season so far has gone exceedingly well and the weather has proved to be much better for our golfers than over the last few years.

“Both golfers and visitor numbers have increased so far this year and we hope that will continue.”

Shaun Higgins, who took over as captain in April, said: “We had a great day and one of the biggest turn-outs for a Captain’s Day.

“The season has got off to a flying start.”

1980s style food was provided by the club’s in-house caterers, The Design House, and the retro options included chicken and chips in a basket, beef and tomato-style Pot Noodles, fried sausage and ketchup and ‘Wimpy’-style burgers.

The music was provided by 1st Choice who played a selection of 1980’s records to the delight of the members who turned out in numbers.

At least 200 attended this event which was spread throughout the recently-extended clubhouse.
