WELCOME to the May edition of the John O’Gaunt Magazine. I have only been your Captain for just over a
month but it has been a busy time now that the competition season is in full flow. We have had the Winter Mixed Finals, Club versus Dunstable, Twenties Cup, Four Ball Auction Cup, Teens Cup and St. George’s Day - all of which
have taken place in that time!
Along with that there has been the Race Night, which was a fantastic success - well done to Wendy and the admin team, and Sue Bassindale We have also had the Four Ball Auction Supper, which was a great evening enjoyed by well over 100 golfers.
In excess of £4,500 was raised by the auction on the night, £900 of which goes into my Captain’s charity pot. So thank you all for digging deep in your pockets; I am sure both my charities will be delighted. The Auction Cup had an exciting climax with a three-way play-off over four holes, which I refereed. But it then went into a sudden death play-off back down the first - the competition was eventually won by Jack Sauble and Lewis Sinclair.
