Our 2018 Captain’s Ray Moore Prize was held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August.
At the presentation of prizes Ray thanked his wife Angela, and all his family
for all the help and support he received throughout the year.
He also praised all those who serve on committees and encouraged
volunteers to come forward and help out within the club.
Ray also paid tribute to the ground staff who had the course
in fantastic condition. He thanked Jimmy Screene and Becky Gavin
and their staff for providing the catering. Ray congratulated all the winners
but also thanked everyone who took part in his Captain’s Prize weekend.
