Junior Awards Presentation - 18th November 2016

 

On the evening of Friday 18th November 2016, a large and smartly dressed contingent of members, family and friends gathered together for the Juniors Section Annual Awards Evening.

Following a dinner that befitted the occasion, compere for the evening Mark Rimmer opened proceedings by inviting Captain Lawrence McNally to welcome members and guests.

A review of the year was provided by Junior Competitions organiser Richard Rawsthorne, the highlight of which being the winning of the Junior Victory Trophy which unfortunately he didn't see because he was away on holiday!  Thanks were also given to sponsors, professional staff and everyone involved in this rewarding aspect of the golf club. Richard ended with a plea for everyone to encourage more juniors, especially girls, to join the golf club as numbers were very low.

Junior Captain Mike Rimmer thanked Mr. Captain and Richard for their kind words and on behalf of the Juniors Section expressed gratitude to everyone involved in organising and helping to make their golfing year so enjoyable.  Mike then presented Richard with a small gift from all the Juniors to thank him for all his hard work.

The two Captains were then joined by Lady Captain Linda Collins and Professional Peter Allen for the awards presentation.  A gallery of photographs can be seen in the Members Gallery.

 

A Guide Dog called Ashton

The generosity of members, guests and visitors to the year long fundraising event initiated by Captain Lawrence McNally has resulted in the gorgeous labrador puppy shown above being named Ashton.
 
Ashton was born on 26th September 2016 and the funding will enable her to eventually undergo rigorous training to become a fully active Guide Dog and someone's faithful companion.
 
The Captain and Ashton Golf Club will keep a close eye on her progress and hope that she will be able to make an appearance in the near future.

Ladies’ Competitions:

The ladies have priority of the golf course on Wednesdays.

Throughout the summer season there are weekly 18-hole and 9-hole competitions, in which the majority of ladies play on a Wednesday.

However, as the ladies’ competitions open on a Sunday and close on the following Wednesday evening, it is now possible for ladies to participate in the weekly competition on the Alternate Day of the previous Sunday (in accordance with the Rules of England Golf). This format has been chosen to enable ladies who work or for other reasons are unable to play on the Main Competition Day.

The results of the two days are combined for the allocation of prizes, which are awarded weekly at approximately

9.00 pm on the Wednesday Prize Presentation Evenings.
