Gerrards Cross Golf Club

Captains' Drive -In - 4th November 2018


Incoming Men's Captain, Colin Sawyer and Ladies' Captain Jennifer Locke joined forces  for the Drive In ceremony as  2019 will be  the inaugural year for  equal status at the club.   A bonus for members who attended (apart from the Bucks Fizz),  two chances to win the  Drive In distance lottery.  Adam Grint, General Manager and James Torr, President officiated for the distance measurement.  The winners this year were Sue Hughes (160m for Colin) and Graeme Wilson(111m for Jennifer), each took home a bottle of Champagne.




A change of format this year as the Captains invited other members to join them for an informal match between the Men's and Ladies Captain's teams. The  Ladies Captain's Team won the friendly match 3-1.  Highlight for Jennifer a rare eagle 3  at the Par 5  2nd hole with her partner Lewis Atkinson, Head Professional.

 The Captains, members and guests gathered later for the unveiling of Colin Sawyer's caricature portrait in the  Burrows Bar. As is custom Vice-Captain Henri Botha  gave a brief address and drew the curtains to reveal another Gordon King masterpiece. Our thanks to Gordon from the club  who kindly attended the ceremony.  

The Club offers its best wishes to Jennifer and Colin for an enjoyable and successful year as our Captains,
