I start this blog by thanking all those members who supported my Captain’s Day. We had 176 golfers in 44 teams of 4 in the Gents Am Am and 10 ladies teams of 4 in the Texas Scramble. The weather gods were kind, the course was marvellous (many thanks to Lee and his greenkeepers) and the meal afterwards was enjoyed (thanks to Trina and the staff on duty in the kitchen and the bar).
Thank you to everyone who helped on the day, to make it a great memory for me.

2. Team Matters
2.1 The Elsham Foursomes
Congratulations to the First Team on making the Elsham Finals again. The finals are played at Elsham on Sunday 17 August and support for the team will be welcomed. Unfortunately the finals clash with the playing of the Victory Cup but for those not playing in the Victory, the Elsham finals are well worth a visit.
2.2 Bramley Singles
We are still in this competition and I wish the players success. Hopefully there will be another final to go and support!
2.3 The League
The First Team had a comprehensive win over Toft and with Sleaford beating Blankney, we might just have a chance in the league.
The Second team is holding its own and I wish them continued success.
3. Captain’s Call – Thursday Evening 9 hole Golf & Supper
The last Captain’s Call will be on Thursday 31 July.
