The annual match between the Ladies and Gentlemen Past Captains took place at Kettering Golf club. The weather was delightful the course in great condition and the food and hospitality were greatly appreciated.
This annual match is always enthusiastically played by both sides and a lot of friendly banter can be heard between the two teams. Unfortunately one of the gentlemen had to withdraw and so Past President Peter Coles played without a partner and due to injury Ken Hignett also played alone.
The format was a stableford, the best player scoring on each hole. The total scores for each pairing were added together and after 4 results the ladies were leading. However, eventually the gentlemen managed to pull ahead and the final result was a win for them 295 points for the Ladies 287.
Chris Gore and Glynis Wingell were each presented with a bottle of wine with a score of 42 points, the best score of the day and Mike Robertson and Derek Mankelow won the gentlemen's prize with a score of 41 on a count back from Ivan Roy and Tom Meazza.
