Captains Day (Freddie Jones Trophy) – Bletchingly GC – August 2021

I couldn’t find a better picture so a repeat of last year Captain James (centre above) is really looking forward to seeing you at Bletchingly GC this Friday with a good attendance of 24 for what I believe is a new course for the society. Fortunately, members have not been put off by James needing to add his Captains spin to the day, which I have been reassured that for a change will not involve a feather duster, gherkins and rum barrel !!
