108 members take on the windy conditions for Captain's Day


Captain’s Day 2019 - Write-up from Gary Gale Sides

A very big thank you for making Captain’s Day such a successful occasion raising over £1,200 in total for my charity Prostate Cancer UK. This sum is the combination of the bucket collection, raffle and silent auction.

108 members took part in the competition. It was an enjoyable game despite the strong wind and the occasional bout of heavy showers. The burgers, hot dogs and drinks were a much appreciated break in the warmth of the clubhouse. After the game there was a happy atmosphere in the bar with stories of the strong winds, rain and lost hats. It was also good to see that some who couldn’t play came along to support the day.

Prizes were awarded after the final groups were in. Those not present have been contacted by email to collect their prizes from the office. There is a list of all the winners below.

The only let down was the few members who had entered but failed to turn up and gave no notice or apologies which left little time to rearrange tee times.

Thank you once again, your kindness, generosity and friendliness has done Kingsdown proud!
