Popular member Barry Knights (pictured left) was unanimously voted in as Stowmarket Golf Club Captain for the next 12 months at the Annual General Meeting held at the club on Thursday March 29, 2018. He was presented with his “Captain’s Tie” by outgoing Captain Mark Tibbenham. Barry has been a long serving member of the club for over 4 decades and his wife Sue is a past Ladies Captain.
Barry and Sue used to run the Fish & Chip shop in Woolpit for many years and this was the theme developed for Barry’s traditional “Captains Drive In” by his Vice Captain Martin Anderson on Saturday 31st March.
Perhaps his previous line of work has also had an influence on the 13 handicap golfer as he is renowned as a very good “chipper”.
Barry struck a great straight drive 198 yards in front of supporting club members. He is now looking forward now to a successful year and will be raising money for the children’s Charity EACH throughout his term.
