SUMMER finally came to Heydon Grange for the Captain's Day last Sunday as over 60 golfers teed off in the warm sunny weather to play for the captain's and lady captain's trophies.

The eventual winner of the men's Trophy was David Gaillard, who amassed a very creditable 41 points.

There were a number of guests, including past captains and past club champions, with Steve Lang, a past captain, taking the best men's guest and overall best guest with 36 points.
