2018 Captains' Drive-in
January 12 2018
The members of Wells Golf Club met on a cold and frosty morning to welcome in the new Captains at their drive-in. Club Captain Colin Mantle, Senior Men’s Captain John Moxon, Ladies’ Captain Cath Levell and Juniors’ Captain Freddie Lovell all drove off straight and true setting a high standard for the coming year.
Markers were set to see who could land closest and then the shotgun competition started with 23 teams taking part. The wind kept the rain and clouds at bay but kept the temperature not far off freezing.
Geoff Ead won nearest the Captain’s Drive, and winning overall with 87 points were Mike Bailey, Ken Mitchell, Roly Currell and Eric Loxton. There were 4 teams with 81 points so on count back the runners up were Phil Leonard, Gary Nutt, Colin Payne and John Hockey. In 3rd place were Dave Hayward, Ashton Wylie, Pete Bartholomew and Guy Timson.
