President’s Day 2020

The smallest gathering in the Somerset Captains’ calendar is the annual President’s Day.

This is organised by the in-post President at his home club and the contestants are the past Captain of Captains.

This year was organised by Mike Usher-Clark, in his last year as President, and held at his home club, Worlebury,

where he has been a member for over 40 years.

Most of the recent available Captains came and played and two who were unable to play, in the spirit of our organisation, turned up to say hello and have some banter with the others.

Those attending were

2020 – Steve Butterfield – Cannington GC

2019 – John  Beer – Taunton Vale GC

2016 – Chris Warcup – Oake Manor GC

2014 – Bob Acland – Mendip Spring GC

2012 – Roy Parmiter – Long Sutton GC

2011 – Mike Usher-Clark – Worlebury GC

2010 – Frank Ryan – Burnham and Berrow GC

2009 – Ben Gliddon – Minehead and West Somerset GC

2008 – John Chillington – Wells GC

2007 – Colin Davies – The Mendip GC

1995 – Trevor Jenkins – Worlebury GC

1994 – George Davis – Wells GC

The weather was good, the course in fine shape and the atmosphere excellent as usual.

The results are kept a guarded secret until after the meal.

However the winner and not for the first time was George Davis,with 37 points.

John Beer came second with 35 points and the rest in an orderly queue behind.
