New Year's Day Captains' Drive In 2020
New Years Day Captains Drive-off
After a brief history of the club outlining how it all started, Stuart Moore, Retford’s President launched Retford’s Centenary Year. He thanked the past years Captains, Dave Stirling and Helen Dean, for their contribution to another successful year for the club and welcomed the new Captains, Allan Meacher and Lin Tongue, taking up their position for 2020. He then handed over to last year Captains to present the Captains' blazers. Fine weather saw good support from members who enjoyed a champagne breakfast, followed by the traditional drive off and a 10 hole round for those who had turned out to support their Captains for 2020. The Vice Captains team ending victorious!
The Club wish the best of golf and a successful year to the 2020 Captains: Allan Meacher and Lin Tongue and their supporting Vice Captains Mike Mahony and Mary Saddington.
