The club was very pleased to see the huge turnout for the Captain’s Vs Clement’s 24-hole event.  RGC, like almost all DDGA clubs, was unable to hold our 2020 Open “The Graeme Clement Open” this was a more than suitable replacement event.  The course had been sprigged with Santa Ana couch on Monday and Tuesday so drives often got quite unusual bounces with some balls turning almost 90 Deg.  Still on such a wonderful day, with such enjoyable company and a challenging format all was good.  The event was played over “The Old Course”layout, 12 holes 4BBB Stableford in the morning with pairs changing for the afternoon 12 holes.  Wendy  Gosden and Lorraine Robb did an amazing job with the salad rolls for lunch with players sitting in small groups well away from each other under the trees.  Despite the challenges of the fairways numerous groups were able to return good scores.  Elaine Scanlon and Mal Mottram did a top job organising the event and sorting the payments and scores.  It was also wonderful to see life members Bruce Robb, John Laing and Peter Scanlon down for a quiet drink and a chat at the end of the day and past captain Neil Jarman playing the whole event.  On a top day the results were;

Captain’s team; AM – 163pts, PM – 157 pts – Total – 320pts

Clement’s Team; AM – 160 pts, PM – 152 pts – Total – 312 pts
