GOLFERS were treated to a special sky display as part of their Captain’s Day.

62 golfers took part in the Stroke Play Competition as part of the David Howarth’s Captain’s Day at Dunnerholme Golf Club.

The golfers were also treated to a special display from The Osprey's Skydiving Display Team.

Alec Hennes, grounds keeper at the club was part of the skydiving team and descended on to the fairway with the clubs flag flying behind him.

He was accompanied by five other skydivers who created a smoke display as they flew in.

David Howarth said: "The skydiving team were excellent.

"Alec came in with the club flag.

"It was a great way to finish the day.

"Everybody said it was a fantastic day all round."

Ian Chick, Team leader of the Osprey's Skydiving Display Team, said: "It was an awesome day.

"One of the best shows we've done.

"We took off from Grange and climbed to 6,000ft before six of us jumped.

"The views were amazing and the hospitality when we landed was fantastic."

The display capped off a 'remarkable day' including a variety of competitions.

On the 14th Hole, there was a Hole In One Competition sponsored by Barton & Townley Barrow Ltd, one unlucky competitor missing the prize when his ball lipped out of the hole.

The final results provided some fantastic scores.

David Tyson’s three birdies and eight pars won him the Captain’s Day Trophy, scoring a nett 62.

Vice Captain Mark Hendley was runner up after a card play off with Steve Holdaway.

David Kavanagh received the Best Gross Trophy with a gross 74.

Mr Howarth also invited Club Sponsors to play with Chris Porter of DSL Heating, winning the Sponsors Event.

After the tournament and the skydiving display, there was a special presentation in the Clubhouse.

There was also evening entertainment provided by Mr Howarth's daughter, Saxophonist Emma Howarth and later by vocalist, Danny Smyth.
