Captain versus Captain event was held on the holiday Monday with a field of 51 players. The events format is a single stableford played in a four ball. Last year the men were successful but this year the new Lady Captain - Jill Scott, headed her team to a victory with 656 points to the mens 616 points. Because there are different numbers of men and women playing in the event the aggregate score is calculated on an equal number of players from each side. In Monday's event there were 22 men and 29 women so the best 22 women's scores were taken for their total. The best men's score was Terry Downing - runner up Bruce Windybank. The best ladies score was new ladies President Carol Turpie - runner up Trish Boyd.
Ball winners Brian Hanrahan 37, Brian Lamb 35, Keith Markwell 34 Antonia Clarke 33, Jenny Ogg 31, Jan Ferguson 33, Annelise King 33, Peter Keys 32, David Boyd 32, Brian Dawkins 32, Alan Turpie 32, Judy Windybank 31.
Ball credits go directly to the mens accounts. Ladies Ball prizes are to be handed out by Jill.
The timing of the event this year was ideal as witnessed by the good field. We are starting to prepare next years event schedule now so we'll try and pick a date around the same time next year.
The course is looking a picture with new growth and blossom everywhere
