Captain's Away Day 2018

September 24th proved to be an excellent choice for an Away Day as the day dawned with clear skies and the promise of some late September sun.  Shifnal Golf Club also proved to be an excellent choice for the venue as the picturesque course was shown at its best under the blue skies and with the autumn colours showing on the variety of trees around the course.

 Following the mandatory bacon sandwich and coffee breakfast members assembled on the 10th tee in their groups of 4 for the 9 hole am am am competition (no - it's not a misprint).
 It was a challenging start with a 212 yard par 3 to contend with.  There were trees down either side, bunkers to carry and bunkers each side of the green to catch a wayward shot.
 Spoiler alert - the eventual winners made short shrift of the hole.  Steve Holt waited to make his putt as Martin Pye lifted his ball from the hole with Richard Joyce and Tom Murray looking on.

 On the 15th hole the team of Mick Price, Ali Peebles, Geoff Owen and Charles Leggitt made their way down the tree lined fairway whilst managing to avoid the fairway bunkers.

Below - the 13th hole aptly named Pond.  A 176 yard par 3 with a carry over .... a pond.  A tricky tee shot whilst also trying to avoid the ducks which rather unwisely seemed to congregate on the far bank.  Perhaps they found it safer than the water.

A gnarled old oak tree and Past Captain Ron - or should it be a gnarled old Past ... no no - mustn't say that.
 The pm competition was an 18 hole individual stableford competition.  It was played in (mostly) groups of 3 with Captain Chris Peake playing 3 holes with each group in turn as they worked their way around the course.  Chris greeted Ron Guest and Ian Griffiths as they arrived at the 13th green prior to accompanying them on the 14th - 16th holes.  The 15th was the hole designated for the longest drive challenge.  Chris's drive soared through the air and - taking advantage of the downhill fairway - ran easily past the existing marker post.  Graciously Chris declined from having his name put on the list.  His second shot rolled onto the green of the par 5 hole but his eagle putt just missed the hole to leave a tap in birdie.
 After a tiring day on the course the competitors relaxed and recuperated in the bar with a few bevies ...
 while Vice Captain Malcolm Sparrow ably supported Chris by doing the honours with the cards and working out the results.

 After the very enjoyable meal VC Malcolm announced the results.  Winners of the am am am competition with 42 points were Tom Murray, Richard Joyce, Martin Pye and Steve Holt - clutching their Chivas Regal.  In 2nd place with 41 points were John Chambers, Ron Guest, Ian Griffiths and Tony Ranger.

Nearest the pin winners were Mick Price and Steve Holt with Geoff Owen taking the prize for the longest drive.

 The individual pm competition winners were Tom Murray in 3rd place with 34 points, Jon Higgitt in 2nd place with 36 points and Tony Ranger the overall winner with 37 points.

 On behalf of the attendees Tony expressed their thanks to Captain Chris for his work in organising a superb and very enjoyable away day.  Shifnal Golf Club was an great choice for the event with a beautiful, interesting and challenging course and providing good quality catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Overall - a great day - thanks Chris.
