Evesham Editorial 2nd Mar, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

EVESHAM Golf Club’s John Machin took over the reins as the new men’s captain at the Craycombe Links course on Saturday.

As is customary, John drove three balls down the fairway to the waiting members who line the course, with a prize going to the nearest person.

In the competition itself, which was a team of four format, scoring proved difficult in blustery conditions.

The winners on the day were G Howey, L Ridley, P Batchelor and B Woodward with 88 points, ahead of runners-up M Nedic, D Nightingale, G Parker and A Dauncey with 86 points.
