DYMOCK Grange held its captain's day on Saturday after the groundsmen had worked flat out to get the course looking great due to the wet weather growth.

The weather was just about as good as it could be with brilliant sunshine and light winds, good scores were inevitable.

To start the day with all the players watching it was the outgoing captain David Linnie to strike from the first tee, immediately followed by the new captain Kevin Marschall. Members had to guess the combined driving distance.

A big field of members and guests from as far away as the north of Scotland soon took to the course and the main event, an 18 hole Stableford competition over the old course.

The in-form players soon started to rise to the top again with David Morris and Sean Linnie (Jnr) to the front.

Sean birdied two of the last three holes but this was not enough to catch David who carded a superb 43 points. Sean was the runner up with 41 points. The new handicap secretary Rob Kington was third with 39 and Bruce Avison held on to fourth place with 38. Best guest was local postman Ivor May.

Longest drive was won by Jamie Glover down the final hole. Sean Linnie won nearest the pin on the new look fifth hole over the water.

Afterwards chipping and putting competitions were ongoing and proceeds were being raised for The Air Ambulance, the full amount will be given on the open fun day in August.

The captain thanked P & A Golf (who have recently taken over at Dymock) and their staff for giving him the use of the course for the day.

He also thanked his wife and family for organising all the food.
