Lady Captain’s day was extremely well supported with over 50 competitors taking part. The weather was glorious to begin with but golfers later in the afternoon got hit by a freak torrential downpour. The Senior’s 9 hole competition was held on the Friday, and the winner was Alan Holland with 19 points. On the Saturday Jennifer Cowley took the main trophy of the day being the Lady Captain’s Cup with 32 points from Runner up Jean Thompson with 27 points. George Bogucki took the mens section with a fantastic score of 45 points with President Richard Bloss finishing runner up on 39 points. Steve Williams was the best guest with 37 points. Cameron Meadows won the junior section with 36 points. The formal presentation was held at the Clubhouse in the evening and was a complete sell-out. Lady Captain Emma Lafferty presented the trophies and prizes. She thanked husband and Club Captain Dave Lafferty and their respective families, the catering and greens staff and everyone who took part for making this such a wonderful day.

Big thanks go to Richard and all those who helped to make this a super day.
Club member Andy Brown won the prestigious 2014 Lancashire leg of the William Hunt Trilby Tour played at Worsley Park, Marriott Hotel and Country Club in Manchester beating 138 other golfers after a tense 4 ball play off. Andy now goes through to the finals to be played later this year. The Trilby Tour is in its 8th year and will be broadcast on Sky Sports with the competition at Worsley being shown in the autumn. Well done Andy.
