Otley Golf Club
After holding 3 successful social golf events over 9 holes already this summer, a final event - Nine & Nibbles - will be held on a Thursday evening Sept 21st which will be a Team of 3 Stableford Waltz and the golf will be followed by drinks including cocktails and nibbles. There will be no requirement to change and there will be no food this time to try and encourage members to come and join in. Any combination of men women or mixed may enter by choosing their own tee time and entering names directly onto the Timesheet which is on the noticeboard in the hall opposite the 19th door.
All members are welcome to come and join the Captains and Vice-Captains in what has been a most successful venture introduced this year.
Below is a photo of the Captain seeing off the first group on the first tee to take part in the inaugural event which took place on 5th May. This was nine holes of 4BBB followed by a meal. An extremely enjoyable occassion and well supported by the members. Winners on the evening were Simon Bradley and Kirsten Parker.
Following on from success of the first event, the Vice Captains organised another enjoyable event held on MONDAY 12TH JUNE in which 42 players enjoyed a Team of 3 Florida Scramble in cool windy conditions but despite this found the format different yet enjoyable. The golf was followed by a fantastic meal provided by the caterer Tim which was a cold platter of various meats with a variety of side salads. The winning team of Simon Bradley Kirsten Parker and Sarah Haigh narrowly nudged the team of the Club President John along with the 2 Vice Captains into second place.
Again a most enjoyable occassion as the pictures below show.
The Captain's hosted the third running of the Nine and Dine on Friday 21st July 4-6pm which was a Team Stableford. The weather for this event was mixed but the golf was still very enjoyable and the event was won by a team of ladies - Carol Hughes, Janet Dent and Gillian Mowat.
