Captain’s Day was played on Tuesday 1st September at our Captain Len Goodman’s home course, The Wildernesse. The course was in sensational condition and the golf club treated us like kings for the day!
Len hit a fabulous ‘DRIVE IN’ from behind the Clubhouse and this can be viewed by clicking on this link – https://youtu.be/FY8nxwvO1Zk
We had some terrific scores and enjoyed an excellent lunch accompanied by some mystifying magic from David Redfearn. John Conteh did a sterling job conducting the auction which raised plenty of money and helped us raise just over the £20,000 mark for the day.
The Charles Drake Trophy was won by Gavin Wilding (pictured with Sponsor, Richard Keel and Captain Len) with the lowest gross score of 77, Michael Walsh won the Division 1 Trophy with 38 points and the winning team on the day were Martin Rose, Greg Perkins, Andrew Jaye and Michael Durst.
Huge thanks must go to our Captain’s Day sponsor – Richard Keel and, of course, our Host and Captain Len Goodman who each both presented and sponsored a Sunshine Coach to ‘Grange Park School’ in Sevenoaks and ‘The Young Lewisham Project’. Thank you so much, Richard & Len.
