Previous Captains’ Days
This year’s Captain’s Day will be the first competition to be played at the club under the new Stroke Play maximum score format, and since the Club was formed in 1893 there have been various types of scoring used to decide the Captain’s Day Winner. In the early days many competitions were match play events played over a number of days, or on a single day preceded by one or more stroke play qualifying events. In the first few years a Captain’s Day qualifying competition was held each month with the 12 winners proceeding to the match play stage. The final was refereed by the Captain and escorted around the course by interested spectators.
Here is a brief record of some Captain’s Days over the years.
