The Woodbridge Park Seniors Section assembled for the annual Captains Day competition which comprised of a 9 hole individual stableford, Team Bowmaker, Nearest the Pin and Strongest Player formats.
33 golfers played in the competition which has become an intense and hard fought battle of mickey taking comments, banter and some surprisingly good golf, which seems to be ‘par for the course’ for a gathering of the Seniors.
Despite some serious aspirations to win, the competition was a closely fought tussle where golfers were playing for the prestigious Captains Cup, individual and a team prizes.
The day was blessed with the course looking better than ever and the best weather of the season so far, reasonably cool at the start then the temperature soared to an impressive 16 degrees.
When the competition ended the players retired to the clubhouse for some well earned refreshments followed by an excellent lunch and presentation of prizes.
The winners then received their prizes along with some carefully selected words of encouragement from the Seniors Captain and our resident score-master David Langley-Hobbs.
This was our first Seniors Captains Cup under the new clubhouse management team. Trevor, Lynn, Cheryl and Fiona did an exceptional job to ensure that all the arrangements for the refreshments and lunch were in place.
The seniors enjoyed a superb lunch of home-made Lasagne followed by a classic Tiramisu and organised the upstairs function room to it’s maximum capacity.
The competition winners were:
Overall Captains Cup
- Winner – Chris Riley
- Second Place – John Banks
- Third Place – Don Saunders

- Nearest the Pin - John Miller
- Strongest Player – Mike Hicks
As the Seniors Captain it was my pleasure (yes pleasure and a somewhat lighter wallet) to have provided the prizes for the day and thanks to Dave Fereday I even paid for my own lunch!!! A big thanks to Bryan (David Bailey) Moore for the photos.
Many thanks John
