On the 30th March, our new 2022 Captain, Steve Coppell, ‘kicked us off’ in style at Walton Heath with an absolute corker of a tee shot on the 1st hole of the Old Course straight into the heart of the green!
We had a full field with everybody delighted to support our new captain and, although the golf course was playing tough in challenging conditions, we were treated to a superb meal after play. Our President, Jimmy Tarbuck, was on top form as he introduced Steve who in turn made a most enjoyable and humorous speech during which he said he is really looking forward to another successful year with Variety Golf following in Len’s footsteps!
Huge thanks go to Richard Keel who sponsored Captain’s Day as well as sponsoring and presenting his second Sunshine Coach in the last two years!
