New Years Day Captains Drive-off
To celebrate the start of a new golfing year at Retford Golf Club, the Captains of 2021 welcomed the incoming Captains for 2022, presenting them with their badges of office and best wishes for a successful year ahead.
With other Club members, the Captains and Vice Captains had a breakfast boost before the traditional Drive-In, when the new Captains drive their balls majestically off the first tee. There followed a light-hearted match of 10 holes to complete the morning.
The new Men’s Captain is Mike Mahony, who takes over from Allan Meacher, and the Ladies’ Captain is Mary Saddington, taking over from Lin Tongue. Their Vice Captains are Dave Halford and Anna Avery. We wish them every success in 2022 and we thank Allan and Lin for their great work over two years, coping with the on-off vagaries of the pandemic.
