The Staff vs. The Officers 
Last Wednesday saw the first Staff vs Officers match where members of staff from the Pro-Shop, the greenkeepers & clubhouse, captained by Santino took on member’s from the Committee and Board, captained by John Simpson. In the first of what will become an annual event, no fewer than 14 in each team fought for the honour of securing the initial 'winners' engraving on a brand new trophy. 
 
With strong winds and heavy showers, it was a very tough day for all the players. In the end though, the staff prevailed, with our very own Richard (nerves of steel) Banks, holing a 10 foot putt on their last hole to win their match and secure the trophy.

A very happy Santino

Everyone agreed that it was a great event, with members from both sides who didn’t even play turning up to show their support. After the golf, the club put on a fantastic BBQ which was enjoyed by everyone. 
Celebrating as you might expect the winning captain to! 
So - One-Nil to The Staff... 
 
...better luck to The Officers in 2018!
