Flamborough Head Golf Club’s new captain Kevin Davey drove-in on Sunday morning in front of about 65 members.

The low numbers were due to the club having to send a team to play in a delayed Scarborough and District Alliance fixture.

The captain was joined by the new vice captain Brian Ackers, club chairman Terry Wright and the immediate past captain Tony Barnes.

Davey is a left-hander but managed to drive-in with an old right-handed club as is the tradition at the Flamborough club.

After the drive-in, members played an individual Stableford in very blustery conditions.

The first division winner with 35 points was Mark Langridge. He took the honours on a countback from Martin Wood with Peter Dyson third on 34 points.

Other scores: S Barker 32, C S Milner 31, M Smith 30, R Jackson, A E Towse 29, B Rhodes 28, T Dixon,T Wright 27, K Davey, M Robson , S Armitage 26, S Broxup, B Ackers, R Marwood 25

The second division winner Nigel Cooper on 31 points, ahead of runner-up Graham Mitchell with 29.

Other scores: C.Bailey, A.Miller 28, E.Marshall 27, A.Waites 25, C.Greenley, D.Macdonald 24.

There was only one birdie two, by club president Tony Towse.

The captain’s wife Anne and incoming ladies captain Sue Towse and junior captain Lara Ackers provided refreshments at the halfway house.
