Sunday was all about the uncompromising rivalry that accompanies the annual Captain vs Vice Captain team matches.

The Captain, John Stabb, and his faithful Vice Captain, Tim Avery, chose their players from a long list of participants and then expected them to 'do or die' for the cause, a là Ryder Cup, in order to secure the much coveted victory.

This year’s competition was as keenly contested as always with the result going right to the wire. Both teams were tied at 6.5 v 6.5 with only one more match to come in.

That game went all the way to the 18th with the winning putt falling in favour of the serving Captain, John Stabb, leaving Vice Captain, Tim Avery, to present bottles of wine to the victorious players.

Those that had neglected to stay for this presentation will find that they have kindly donated their prizes to the forthcoming Children in Need Appeal, a very thoughtful and unselfish, if unknown, gesture by all.

Ladies’ Section: This week the ladies were supporting the BBC Children in Need Appeal with a shotgun start, 14 holes Stableford competition, played in threes and fours, two scores to count followed by a lunch.

Due to the unavoidable absence of both the Lady Captain, and Lady Vice Captain Jackie Seager, the Ladies’ Secretary was "in charge".

The prize presentation took place with Competition Secretary Jennifer Pyle announcing that the four-in-a-team winners, with 61pts, were Henrietta Bradshaw, Penny Blackburn, Catherine Doherty and Betty Weeden.

The three-in-a-team winners, with 56pts, were Olive Pope, Val Daniels and Sue Witton. Jennifer then announced that the collection for Children in Need had raised over £141.

The ladies enjoyed their lunch with much noise and laughter, resulting in a most enjoyable day.
