The Captains of the Men's, Ladies and Village club sections commenced their Captains’ years by completing the “Driving in” ceremony on the afternoon of Sunday 24th March 2019.
The first to drive in was the new Ladies Captain, Jeanette Fleming who was accompanied onto the first tee by members of Ladies Committee.
She then downed the tradition alcoholic shot in one before hitting a well struck tee shot down the left hand side of the 1st fairway at Puttenham Golf Club.
Next to take up the challenge was Village Captain Martin Bramley. struck the middle of the fairway with the longest drive of the ceremony.
Finally it was the turn of Les Webber the new Men’s Captain.
Les proceeded to down his alcoholic shot provided by Vice Captains Andy Nash and then struck a fine tee shot only barely missing the fairway on the right hand side.
The ceremony was preceded by the usual sale of drive in pegs, whereby the members could place these anywhere on the first hole to guess where the drives would finish.
Each winner won a bottle of champagne and the winners were:
Men's Captain Drive – Keith Roberts
Ladies Captain Drive – John Machin
Village Club Captain Drive – Mike Webber
The Prize giving for the morning Pot Pourri Competition also took place in the clubhouse after the drive in and the spoils went to the team of David Nubbert, Bill Bisset, Sarah Dyason and Joy Macdowel who won with a score of 120 points.
We wish a very successful year to all of our new captains.
