On Tuesday 21st November the much-awaited match between the teams representing the Senior’s Captain, Howard Lockwood and the Vice-Captain, Mike Collins took place over the Belmont Course. With the weather forecast predicting rain during the day waterproofs and umbrellas were at the ready but glad to report that they were not required.
56 Seniors attended the lunch and presentation after the Senior’s Captain v’s Vice Captains competition.
The course as always was in great condition with the greens running fast and true making for a really enjoyable day. At the post match light lunch Howard announced the result for the match, a 7 all draw which was a fitting end to a super day.
