ASTBURY’S new captains got in the swing in preparation for the new season when they teed off for their annual Drive-In last month. A packed clubhouse clamored to witness this yearÕs captains Nigel Hodges and Linda Burrows take up the challenge to hit a ball with an antique hickory shafted club. In fine weather conditions, both Nigel and Linda overcame first tee nerves and much vocal support from those gathered by the tee to propel their balls down the fairway.
No sooner had the spectacle been completed than the forecast showers arrived and everyone retreated to the dry and warmth of the clubhouse for some refreshments supplied by caterer Richard Dutoy. Once inside there were a variety of raffles in aid of this coming seasonÕs charity, which is carerstrust4all.
