Sunday 7th of April will be this years Captains Drive In here at Howley Hall Golf Club. This is where our new 2019 captain Bill Watt will hit a tee shot on the first hole signalling the start of his year in office, taking over from 2018 Captain David Jones.
Ever wondered about the history of ‘Driving In’?
Back in the day, the club captain was not elected, he was usually the club champion. But, that didn’t always mean he was good at the other duties bestowed upon him!
Now, we select our Club Captain in advance. But to still pay homage to how it was once done, our new Captain’s ‘Drive In’… a tradition we honour at Howley Hall. It’s also a good little competition to guess the length of his drive!
We would like as many members as possible to come and support our incoming Captain Bill on the day and wish him a prosperous year as club captain.
The drive in will be followed by a shotgun start at 10am with a best 2 scores from 4 stableford format (90% handicap).
