KGC Captains’ Drive-In

Kibworth Golf Club

The Captains at Kibworth Golf Club for 2022/23 have now been officially nominated and voted into office. No sooner had the process been completed than the fun began with the Captains Drive-In. 

A tee shot driven down the 1st from each captain opens the event. The shot must hit the fairway to count towards the fun competition, “Guess the Combined Distance,” which members enter to win a prize.  A large chunk of the money raised from this goes to the named charity. This year launched as Prostate Cancer- a fantastic start as we raised in excess of £600 on the day!

Gentlemen Captain Tim, Lady Captain Chris and Junior Captain Matthew all braved the tee in front of a large crowd of onlookers. It is a nerve-racking experience and, whilst all of the shots were impressive for distance, unfortunately only one stayed on the fairway! It’s not an easy game!

Sunday lunch followed, along with some wonderful speeches from each Captain of their hopes and aspirations for the year ahead. 

We wish them all well and I look forward to reporting their progress throughout the year ahead.

Incidentally, memberships are now available; for more details, please call the office on (0116) 279 2301
