Captains’ Challenges 2014
The Captains’ Challenges events were held jointly on Friday 25 July at the par 70 Zeegersloot course and attended by seven Club Captains, six Lady Captains and three invited and honoured guests.
The playing format for the captains matches was medal strokeplay (gross score minus playing handicap) while the honoured guests chose to play Stableford.
Detailed results are given in the attached pdf file but:
– the clear winner of the Captain’s Challenge was Dave Collins with 71 strokes (net) with Alex Jeanes second and Cees van de Noort third.
– three ladies had the same net score of 73 but by virtue of the better back 9 rule, the winner was Elly Davis, with Valerie Kayser second and Angela Glatston third.
– the best round of the day was recorded by Alan Thirkettle (honoured guest) with a magnificent 39 Stableford points – with commensurate cut in handicap.
Adding the top 6 net scores, the ladies scored 448 thereby beating the men with 473, thus repeating their victory of 2013. The conclusion: we need more ladies to sign-up for the Bedrijfs League to play the away matches on outside courses.
