Echo report 29th November: CAPTAIN & LADIES CAPTAIN DRIVE-IN

It was all change at Belfairs Golf Course last week as the new captains performed the traditional drive-ins.

On Thursday, Ladies Captain Kay Fagg was Pearly Queen for the day as she brought a touch of the East End to the first tee. Members and guests performed a rendition of London songs before Kay stepped up and hit her drive down the fairway. The cockney experience was nicely completed with pie and mash served in the clubhouse.

The Sport of Kings came to Belfairs on Sunday as Club Captain Chris Shawyer arrived on horseback resplendent in jockey silks. Thankfully, Chris displayed better golf than horsemanship and his tee shot landed squarely on the green, much to the amazement of members who had predicted otherwise.

The one outstanding gold leaf final was completed last week as Baz Patel and Lawrence Schooley took the Relf Foursomes beating Nigel Warder and Russell Johnson.  4 up after the morning round, a spirited afternoon fight back by their opponents was not enough to overcome the deficit  and Patel and Schooley persevered to claim victory 4&3.

The monthly medals were contested over the weekend and produced some fine golf despite the damp and misty conditions. Consistent Frank Howroyd carded a creditable gross 77 (nett 66) to take Friday’s event, finishing 2 shots clear of runner-up Peter Gregory (68) and third-placed David Watson (70).

On Saturday, a missed short putt on the first could have cost Kevin Gough the medal as it needed countback to eventually decide the outcome. In the end it was Gough (76-9=67) who emerged the winner from Andrew Nash (77-10=67) with both players comfortably ahead of Harry Smith (87-16=71) in third.

Best nett score of the weekend belonged to Nigel Warder (78-13=65) as he wrapped up Sunday’s medal pursued by Tony Hayes (88-21=67) and Steve Bucke (83-16=67) contesting the minor places.  

The Weekend Order of Merit was decided on Sunday with Ray Beadell taking the overall winner trophy and Ray Jones the prize for the best 20 cards.
