Pro-Captain Away Trip to the Vale Resort
October 16 2017
22 members from Wells Golf Club joined Club Captain, Stuart Mann and Head Professional, Jack Heginbotham for a two day Pro-Captain Away Trip to the Vale Resort in South Wales. The golf on both days was played in beautiful Autumn sunshine.
A draw was made to decide on who played for the Captain's and Professional's teams. Over the two days the match formats were 4 Ball Better Ball with stableford scoring. There were also selected holes where double scores applied. The first round was played on The Lakes course and the pairing with the highest score on the day was Club Captain Stuart Mann and Steve Rowse with a very credible 51 points.
The second day's competition was played on the Welsh National Course. A combination of a tougher course and over indulgence by many players, during and after dinner the previous evening, led to much lower scoring. Highest score for the round was 43 points achieved by Rob Berry and Geoff Spinks.
Over the two days, after totalling up the combined stableford scores the bragging rights, until next year, went to the Professionals team with 267 points. This was 25 more than that achieved by the Captain's team. The challenge is on for next year!!
