The 18-hole Captains Cup Stableford was then contested in tricky conditions with a brisk south-westerly keeping all the players on their toes. After a shot-gun start, it was back to the clubhouse for the presentation of the prizes and the customary raffles. The clear winner of the Captains Cup today with a super score of 43pts was Roger Tillett. The next four players were all tied on 37pts so count-back had to be invoked to separate them. The lucky runner-up was Paul Tebbutt who just pipped Jack Unsworth, Jim Green and Captain Jeremy Twaits courtesy of a better back nine score. Full result - click here.

There was also a charity raffle with prizes donated by many generous members. The Captain's charity benefits from today's proceedings to the tune of approx £391 which is a good start to the year.

There are many people to acknowledge and thank for their part in helping to make today's event the success it was. Judy Willson, Tina Hawkins and Jon Miller for their early morning shift extracting money for captains drive-in pegs and raffle tickets, Andrew Buchanan and Dan Green for collecting the pegs and balls, Jon Miller and Paul Tebbutt for processing all the score cards, the clubhouse team for an early start to provide the refreshments, the green keepers for preparing the course in excellent condition and Brian Grace for collecting the forgotten longest drive marker in his buggy despite the fuel gauge being in the red!!!!
Most of all thanks to all the competitors who turned out today to make this a very successful event.
