Captains’ Charity Day

Club Captain Barry Carver and the members of the Golf Club Committee held the Captain’s Charity Day on Saturday 24th October 2009.

The day started with a Texas Scramble Competition, shotgun start, with 95 Members and Guests competing in perfect weather. Everyone enjoyed the Fun Day.

Prizes were presented to the winners and runners up at a Cava Reception hosted by the Captain in the Patio Andaluz before a Gala Dinner in the Clubhouse, attended by 124 members and guests. During the evening a raffle was held in aid of the Captains’ Charities.

The Captain gave a brief speech welcoming everyone and thanking them for their participation in the day. He welcomed two visiting groups, one from Dunston Hall, Norfolk, England and a team from Aberdeen in Scotland.

The Captain of Dunston Hall thanked all members of Desert Springs for their warm welcome and invited them to a return match in Norfolk sometime in the future.

Dancing was to the ‘Amor Amorfo’ Group, which was much enjoyed.

Special thanks must go to Alfonso Castiñeira, Christine Langford and all the Staff at Desert Springs for helping to make the day such a success, and all the people and businesses that made donations and gave prizes for the raffle.

Barry would also like to thank his Vice-Captain and members of the Committee for their help on the day, not forgetting the brilliant raffle team.

There was a true Club atmosphere throughout the day with several people commenting on the friendly welcome they received from the members of Desert Springs.

Well done everybody!!!

Best regards,

Barry Carver
