The first official duty for South Cerney Seniors captain, Andy Taylor, was to organise the annual Captain’s Day, comprising an 18-hole Stableford Competition during the day and an evening.

The Captain’s Trophy, awarded to the player with the best Stableford score, went to Scott Webster with an impressive 43 points, a round which came within inches of including a hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth.

The best gross score of the day was Gerald Tucker’s 83, whilst the best net score was Mac Cannons’ 64.

Other nearest the pin prizes on the day went to Cameron Thomson, Andy Hugill, Frankie Shaw and Ian Haslam, plus, of course, Scott Webster’s tee shot on the eighth.

The putting maze competition, devised by Chris and Dave Mitchell, was won by Cameron Thomson for the seniors and by Annie Lawton for the ladies.

Several Seniors managed to beat the pro with their tee shot on the 15th, but the winner of the prize, drawn from the hat, was Dave Miles.

The prizes were presented during the evening meal, a Valencian paella prepared by Claire Booth and her helpers.
