Wind and rain didn’t lessen the enthusiasm of Stoke Rochford Golf Club captains Simon Yelland and Pam Watson and their guests who turned out to play at the Captains Weekend.

Saturday was an any-combination betterball, with members able to invite a guest, and Paul Jackson and Sheila Dugmore topped the good scoring on the day with a best of 46 points.

The individual tournaments were held the following day, with the men playing an individual medal, and both the ladies and guests playing a stableford.

The rain came early, but they toughed it out with the captains at the halfway house to greet the early risers.

The successful weekend ended with a full clubhouse on Sunday night for the presentations and meal.

A total of £2,000 was raised to be split between St Barnabas Hospice and the Heart Link children’s charity.
