72 golf hole challenge tees off at dawn

12 golfers gathered at dawn to start the 72 golf hole challenge in support of the Captain’s Charity - Macmillan Cancer Support.  A gloriously sunny day is forecast, although at 4:20 am it was rather chilly!

After one round at Alderley, it’s off to Mottram Hall, then Styal before returning to Alderley for the final round starting at approximately 6pm.

Come along and support the Captain and all his team on their return, and join in the informal social evening including food, drinks and music (courtesy of Harmonix Vocal Collection).

Good luck to the Captain and his team.


Vice Captain's Day out - Friday 15th June 2018

On Friday 15th June,  the traditional Vice Captain's 'Day Out' took place. The course of choice this year was the delightful Trentham Park Golf Club near Stoke. After a breakfast, and presentation by the General Manager, 39 AEGC Members set off on 18 holes around a well presented, mature parkland course. This was followed by a cracking meal and drinks in the Clubhouse, and the much awaited results. Steve Yakub and Paul Short won the nearest the pins, each winning vouchers for a 2 ball at Trentham Park and a sleeve of balls. The main prizes of the day were vouchers in our Pro's shop at AEGC. They were as follows. 4th place - Dan Mace -£25. 3rd place - Chris Hoyland - £50. 2nd place - Gary Johnson - £100. 1st place - Charles le Sueur - £150.

A great performance by all. An even greater performance by our Pro, who, having won the day, without hesitation, donated his winnings to Mr Captains Charity. Thank you Charles. A great day concluded with a wonderfully presented cheeseboard and Port back at HQ! Thank you to everyone who supported the day!

Captain’s Charity Day raises £4,300

I’d like to give my thanks and appreciation to all those who contributed to a very successful Captain’s Charity Day in support of my chosen charity Macmillan Cancer Support. We raised £4,300 on the day which is a fantastic achievement, and I’d like to congratulate Brian Foden for organising another incredibly successful day. Friday was Brian’s 22nd Captain’s Charity Day and he has raised over £85,000 in that time - a fantastic achievement.

My thanks also go to: all the players on the day for contributing to the golf, and for their generosity in the raffle and auction, all the individuals and companies who donated golf and raffle prizes and items for the auction, Chris Hoyland and the catering team and the greenstaff for preparing the course.

14 teams took part in a very enjoyable golf day and evening meal. The team prize winners were Trevor Rathbone (Vice Captain), Bill and Steve Bennett and Luke Foden.

I’ve set myself a target of raising £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support during my Captaincy year and my next fundraising event is a 72 golf hole challenge on Friday 22nd June starting at sunrise.  More information will be in another article on the website, but for those supporters who want to donate now, to help reach my event target of £2,500, I’ve set up a JustGiving page:
