MINTO: SATURDAY’S captains’ prize day was a huge success, with club captain Ron Elliot and lady captain Lesley Moore expressing their delight at the good turnout, which comprised nearly 50 entrants in the men’s competition and 12 teams of three in the ladies’ event.

The glorious weather complemented the excellent course conditions, testament to greenkeeper Paul Cranston and his team, and the players enjoyed refreshments before and at the halfway stage of their rounds in the hospitality tent and afterwards in the clubhouse with a delicious buffet prepared by the club chef Scott Daley. Entertainment was provided by Dr Geoff Ross.

Lady members responded magnificently to the challenge set by captain Lesley and appeared in a wide range of imaginative millenery creations, ranging from a mock-up of a putting green, complete with flag, to a witch’s hat and yards of black netting, to add a fun touch to the day’s proceedings.
