I would like to thank the 5 man team in the North Durham League Team Championship took place at Crook and the wind played its part. The team of Adrian, Chris, James, Alex and Richie, all played well but the odd hole did the damage to the cards.

Congratulations to the winners of the following events this past month:

2nd Corporate Day - Denis Finlay, John Ash, Bob Stevenson and Bill Knox.
The impact mixed foursomes - Keith Jonas and Jen Anderson.
Invitation day - Paul Hattam and Peter Holehouse.
Anniversary singles - Darren Eltringham with a great score of 63 nett and Davy Hunt for his 1st lowest gross score.

Also Garry Bone who played in that awful rain to win the Lindsay Gallon.

Captains Day on 17th June for me was absolutely fantastic.

Weather was great and a there was very good turn out from the members for the golf competition. It was a day of fun from start to finish.

I would like to thank all the past captains for their cards and gifts for the raffle.
My wife Tracy ask me to mention George Iley, a lovely (young)gentleman, to thank him for the 2 refreshing drinks he got for her and Linda which were well needed.
Many thanks to my Vice Captain, Craig Barras, for his help and input on the day.
