Och Aye The Noo At Captains Dinner


Main Speakers - Annual Dinner 2007
The 55th Annual Dinner of the Society of Manchester and District Golf Captains proved to be a splendid occasion at the fabulous setting of Mere Golf and Country Club.
Society Captain Robbie Phillips set the tone for the evening as he and his principal guest were led in to the packed room by a piper and the food reflected Robbie’s ethnic past beginning with Scotch Broth and finishing with a selection of Scottish Cheese.

The toast to the Society was proposed by David Harrison the Captain of the R and A who gave an insight into his drive-in to office at St Andrews a few weeks previously and of his connections to Cheshire during his long and successful time in golf.

Robbie Phillips spoke in his own inimitable way in response to David and was able to thank all of those who had worked so hard behind the scenes during his most enjoyable year of office.
Robbie did take the blame for the poor results achieved by the Society in the matches against other Captains’ societies.

The toast to the guests was proposed in excellent style by society President Barry Swainson of Reddish Vale and the evening was brought to a fitting close by Graham Lewis of Hazel Grove Golf Club with some great stories and jokes.

Succeeding Robbie and Barry in the top offices in 2008 will be Colin Shadbolt of Bramall Park and Jack Bishop of Sale.
