The Woodbury Park Captains Day proved to be a great success, writes Julie Browne.
It was hosted by this years captain’s, Gregor Crum and Ann Spiller, who have chosen to support local charity, Force.
Prizes on every hole were donated by previous captains and others. Special thanks must go to those manning the barbecue at the halfway house in sweltering heat! Naomi from Force, was there to lend a helping hand.
Steven Robb was pleased as punch coming in with 48 points to win the men’s trophy. Tony Taylor was second with 41 and Jeff Perry took third with 39.
Kay Foster won the ladies trophy with 40 points with second place going to Maggie Quaddy with 39 and third was Sue Persey, with 38.
Pink Day was a medal with Chris Penberthy scoring 67, Seamus Stewart 68 and Chris Lake 68. Wendy Taylor had the top score for the ladies with 72, Marilyn Perry and Kate Blake were second and third 73. A raffle on the day was generously supported by members.
Meanwhile, in other club news, the Woodbury Park seniors took the same squad that had won so convincingly in the meeting at Woodbury in late May, for the return match at Exeter.
However, they lost 4-2 on the day, but still have an aggregate score of 8-4 in their favour. Well done, to Ken Todd for winning nearest the pin on the eighth. Woodbury Park vice captain, Andy Neilson, took a mixed team to Oake Manor. The match took some organising, but was worth the effort as Woodbury played well and retained the coveted ‘Pheasant Trophy’.
