Captain’s Day success at Parley
The Captain’s Day at Parley Golf Centre proved a huge hit – with dozens of members driving up the fairways on the new course.
After the £250,000 investment in the course and practice facilities it was the first chance for members to go head-to-head.
Tony Pomeroy – captain this year – organised the Stableford competition which was won by the team of Michelle Keogh, Simon Hentrich and Dennis Wilkinson.
Alex Glew and Belinda Queirolo both excelled on the fairways and won the longest drive competitions.
And Dave Wilson and Michelle Sharp picked up the ‘nearest the pin’ titles for 2017.
The players afterwards made use of the café-bar where the trophies were presented.
Daryl Dampney, manager of the centre, said: “It was a great day with good weather and was enormous fun.
“The new course is bedding down nicely and the members really enjoyed the competition and playing against each other.
“All the competitions are played in an excellent spirit and everybody is already looking forward to next year.
“Anyone can turn up and use the course, range and practice facilities which are already extremely popular.”
