Teams turn on style to mark new regime
GRIMSBY Golf Club held its Captains Drive-In to mark the inauguration of the new club captain Graham Green.
Two nine-hole Stableford mixed 'am-am' competitions were contested from the first and tenth tees – played off full handicap with the best two to score on each hole.
Wintry, drizzly conditions did not dampen the atmosphere for the 64 players taking part. Eight teams of four played from two tees on each side of the course.
Although the conditions could have been better, the course is still in a first-class state with the greens excellent.
