A Huge Success - 2017 Club Captain Gwyn Williams Captains Week.
A Huge Success 2017 Club Captain Gwyn Williams Captains Week.
And what a memorable week it turned out to be. the weather was absolutely fantastic which allowed our head green keeper Jamie Probert and his team to immaculately groom and show the course in all its glory for the captain and the members. The course certainly lived up to its claim of being one of the best courses in South Wales.
Gwyn was overwhelmed by the support he had from his vice captain Gary Jones, committee member, Conrad Dyment-Jones, Junior leader, Anne Evans, Bradley Dyment-Jones and his bar team and Steffan Jones our golf professional, who all worked relentlessly to help him set up and run the really successful Captains Week.
One special thank you went to Gwyn's wife Judith who worked tirelessly to make certain Gwyn's Captains Week was a huge success. Judith prepared all the food for the week along with her trusty lady members and friends to ensure that the members had an unbelievable culinary choice throughout the week, food fit for royalty ! Well done ladies for all that hard work. it was much appreciated by the members.
The support for Gwyn across the whole club was incredible, with high numbers from all sections of the club, Gents, Ladies, Seniors and Juniors turning out in force to enter all the competitions throughout the week.
The week was crowned with the traditional captains day 4BBB competition followed by the customary Captains buffet lunch. The evening saw the clubhouse packed to capacity for the presentation, in a fantastic show of support for the very popular captain. Gwyn thanked everybody for all the support he and his wife have been given so far in his Captains Year.
Gwyn's chosen charity for his Captains Year is Evie Grace supporting Cerebral Palsy and it was really nice to see Evie's mother Kirsty at the club.
The evening was rounded off by a great band " The Electrics" and was enjoyed by all guests in the packed lounge.
