Captain's Drive In Sunday 3rd April 2016
New Rookery Park Club Captain Martin Scott, performed the traditional Drive-In off the 15th tee on Sunday to kick start his year. Before the traditional drive-in, 112 golfers took part in an AM-AM competition, Martin provided some light refreshment (sausage roll and drink) half way round as members enjoyed a lovely early spring morning. Following the presentation of the prizes, a large expectant crowd gathered by the 15th tee to watch Martin perform his drive. Despite the pressure, Martin smashed his drive 226 yards which was correctly guessed by his predecessor Billy Groves. The £158 raised from the drive-in will be split 50-50 with Billy and Martin's chosen charity this year, East Anglian Children's Hospices.
