Rugby Golf Club’s Captain’s Day attracted 102 male members along with eight ladies, who enjoyed another splendid event. They also welcomed back three former members returning from illness and were delighted to see Neil Tooby, Brian McGovern and Chris Moran.

The course was in fabulous condition and the weather for the most part good.

Captain’s Day is also a huge fundraising day with over £1,200 raised for Camillus McCarron’s nominated charity, The Bradby Club. A spectacular duck race along Clifton Brook raised £600.

The winner was Aidan March with 41pts, ahead of Ashley Moss 40pts and Andy English third with 39pts.

Susan Jones was first for the ladies on 41pts, with Deb Harrad runner-up on 35pts and Judith Pegler third on 35pts.
