Mr Captain, Phil Denver, was delighted that 40 members took part in the Captain’s Away Day at Ladbrook Park Golf Club. A luxury coach from Birmingham International Coaches whisked them along the M42 and dropped them off for a light breakfast before the golf.
Our professional Steve Carter kindly supported the day and conducted the draw for partners during breakfast.
The gifts had an Irish flavour green tees and ball markers plus 3 golf balls.
Ladbrook Park provided a volunteer starter to get people off in a good frame of mind.
We knew the course had a great reputation and soon experienced some challenging golf holes and the prize winners had to keep focused to score well.
There were in the end some very good scores out there and some happy prize winners!
The winners were James Delaney and Jim Partlow. John Ford and Gerry Mansfield were second, John Simpson and Mark McGrail were third. In 4th place was John Parker and Anthony Benton. Finally, in 5th place was Paul McGrail and Alan Elton
Many thanks for Ladbrook Park Golf Club, whose secretary Mandy gave us her full support.
