Big day for all club’s incoming captains

FIVE new captains drove into office on Saturday at Crow Nest Golf Club.

New club captain Steve Brown, led the way with a drive off the first tee.

He was followed by new Lady captain, Ann Ashton, new Rabbit captain Mike Greenberry, new Senior captain Roger Carter and new Junior captain Jacob Campbell.

All captains drove off well, and accumulated a combined yardage off the tee of 617 yards.

The sweep for the combined yardage was won by outgoing captain Dean Wilson with the exact same total.

The Captains led the way, and 80 members competed in a nine-hole team competition which was won by Eddie Hirst, Kayleigh Sugden, Allan Stafford and Les Holmes with an 11 under par score.

After the competition the incoming captains, made a series of speeches to a packed clubhouse, where it was standing room only.

Steve Brown received his captain’s green jacket from outgoing captain Wilson.

The official start of the club season went without a hitch, which bodes well for Crow Nest Park and its members.
