The golfing season has officially kicked-off with the traditional Captain’s drive here at Cawder Golf Club.
New captain, Colin Montgomery and Vice Captain, Allan Mackintosh, were on the first tees of both the Cawder and Keir courses yesterday, ready to take the first drive for the 10am shotgun start of a well-supported event.
The courses were in magnificent shape thanks to Craig Paterson, Course Manager, and the 11 strong greens team.
Captain, Colin Montgomery commented “I am sure that with the courses playing so well along with the recent accolades we have received, that this signifies the start of a superb year of golf for all at Cawder GC.”
Both captains staged a fund-raiser for their chosen charities, St. Margaret’s Hospice and Prostate Cancer UK and were delighted to report over £450 was raised on the day.
In the competition, a four-person team event with teams for gents, ladies and mixed participated.
