Captains Weekend - Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July 2021


Dear all,

Captains weekend is fast approaching and please disregard the previous information written on here about booking which I have now removed.  Sorry for any inconvenience caused if you had already booked in via V1/HDiD.  For those who did, you will have noticed you were only allowed to book 1 player and not 3 which meant you couldn't actually choose your playing partners.

To rectify this issue, we are going "old school" and entry sheets will be placed on the main clubhouse foyer for you to book your preferred slots.  The lists will be there by end of the day tomorrow, Tuesday 15th June.  Again, sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience.

Both days will be singles stableford competitions with the Gents playing from the yellow tees and the Ladies playing from the reds.  Prizes will be awarded in 3 divisions for the Gents, 2 divisions for the Ladies and there will be 2 prizes for the Juniors.  There will be Nearest the Pin prizes on each day and food and drink will be available at the halfway house for your refreshment.  Entry fees are suggested by the Club Captain at £5 per player which is optional and 100% of all monies received will be donated to the Captains' chosen charities.  Donations can be made in the Pro Shop prior to play and there will also be the opportunity to enter the 2's sweep.

It's been a difficult couple of years due to COVID and this has seen many restrictions imposed on us as individuals and on Blankney Golf Club.  We don't know what's round the corner and as you are all aware COVID restrictions have now been extended until July 19th which will encroach on Captains Weekend, however, our Club Captains will be able to host their weekend whilst adhering to Government guidelines.  Here's looking forward to seeing you all on the course supporting this event and making it a memorable occassion for Kevin & Keri to enjoy, especially after the disappointment of having to cancel last year.

Cheers, Paul
