Captain’s Drive-In at South Cliff
South Cliff Golf Club Captain Neil Thompson celebrated the start of his year last Sunday with the traditional Captain’s Drive-In, a better-ball medal competition played off the white tees. Despite the recent rain the course played well and scores were low with winning pair Jamie Anderson and Paul Dack taking the honours.
With a shotgun start all players finished together and were treated by the captain to a roast pork dinner, followed by the highlight of the day, the Captain’s Drive-In. A huge crowd watched as Thompson drove off from the first tee with a vintage Persimmon Driver, a club in popular use over 50 years ago. All players had previously marked where they thought his drive would finish and despite the pressure Thompson hit the ball sweetly a full 160 yards down the fairway leaving lucky member Lee Ridsdale winning the prize as the person who had marked the correct spot. A full clubhouse and a very good lunch made it a great start to the year for the new captain.
