The annual Captains Drive In took place on Sunday 8th January and was witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd of members and guests. The outgoing 2022 Captains, Wendy Priday, Les Baker and Steve Hallam presented a cheque to Nicole Beebee from the Air Ambulance Charity, with the total raised reaching just over £9000 including Gift Aid and funds raised by a sponsored parachute jump by senior member Terry Weight.
The new Captains - Martin Sommers (Seniors), Josh Alderton (Juniors), Sue Purslow (Ladies), and Gareth Jones (Mens) then struck the ceremonial tee shots from the 1st tee to commence their year in office.
Congratulations to our Men's Scratch League team who won the 2022 Shropshire and Herefordshire Union of Golf Clubs Scratch League Div 2. In the final played at Shifnal GC, the team of Allan Williams, Matt Weaver, Ryan Hotchkiss and Sam Jones defeated Lilleshall Golf Club by a score of 5 1/2 - 2 1/2. After winning the morning series of matches 3-1, the team managed to also win the afternoon series 2 1/2 - 1 1/2. Matt Weaver bounced back from a morning defeat to win his afternoon match and secure the winning point for the team after Ryan Hotchkiss had won his second match of the day. Everyone played their part, all securing at least a point for the team. Well played everyone.

We are delighted to feature so highly in the latest Top 100 ranking from Golf World / Today's Golfer. This is an amazing achievement for a small club such as Kington.
