Edge Captains Drive-In For 2018

There was a good turn-out of members, family and friends at Alderley Edge Golf Club for the traditional Captain’s Drive-In featuring the new officials Captain Simon Barber, Lady Captain Mary O’Toole and Junior Captain Tom Troup.

They all enjoyed an excellent brunch and the Drive-In was followed by more food and drinks at the 19th hole.

Watching the Drive-In was former Captain Brian Foden who was looking to see if anyone could hit it less than his effort of 78 yards on his Drive-In.

Lady Captain Mary was first off the tee and hit a great drive that nearly took out the marker pole at the top of the hill.

Next up was Tom Troup who hit a good drive that struck a tree on the left and bounced back on to the fairway.

Finally Simon Barber, who had dealt with numerous taunts, – especially from Brian Foden for several weeks- and he creamed his drive 212 yards straight down the middle of the fairway to his great relief and the disappointment of Brian Foden.
