Thetford Golf Club’s new captains drove into office on New Year’s Day.

Club captain Mike Horley, ladies’ captain Mary Neal and seniors’ captain Dave Smith all hit good drives. much to the delight of the large number of members who were there to witness their nerve-racking ordeal.

The winner of the Captain’s Mashie, the traditional New Year’s Day competition, was Frank Knight with 23 points, a good effort for 13 holes with only one club and a putter. He played the four holes from 10 to 13 in three over par to collect 10 which meant he pipped Graham Sloan on countback with Tim Warner in third place with 20.

The last event of 2018 was the Captain/Pro Challenge when Mike Horley and Stuart Smith were close to winning the day. There were 35 pairs out to beat their score, but only two pairs managed to do so. Mike and Stuart recorded 37 which was bettered by Chris White and Terry Young with 39. However, the winners of the top prize of a Ping putter each were Andy Beard and the in-form David Sutton with 40.
