Calling all Captains - haven't you done well - all those years you have given to the club - and now you get to have a bit of a rest - or should that be respect? Prizes for the most important day in the Club's calendar, and one of the most important in your golfing career?
Why not pop over to Lincolnshire - we will entertain you with tea or coffee and maybe even a cake. We have all the stock here, and will be able to give you the benefit of 30 years experience in guiding you on your Captain's Day prizes. Some people book in at the Petwood Hotel and make a couple of days of it. (Lovely people btw)
We will be able to design your artwork, and we will have time to maybe give you pieces for your Charity, so you will feel really involved.
Or - Email us with your ideas, and we will sort something out and email you the artwork and a couple of suggestions - and don't forget your complimentary crystal!
"Received my Captain’s Day order yesterday and was very impressed with quality and speed of service. Also I was very pleased with the extra items which I will be using on my Charity Day. Please can you pass on a big thank you to all involved"
Jackie and I would like to thank you for making us so very welcome yesterday. It was nice to meet you and going through all the crystal prizes we would require for my Captains golf day. The artwork is great and we like it very much, l will leave it to you to put the required artwork on the prizes as you think would look good. Thank you once again for everything you are doing in making my captaincy a great day.
There is no doubt about it - engraved crystal for the prizes on Captain's Day will be extremely popular - after all, it is the one day in the year which defines the Captain's style. Even if you are giving Tellies 'n' Toasters small pieces such as paperweights and pillars of wisdom make excellent 'keepers' for when the electricity fails.
The following is based on no more than 30 years experience... However you don't have to believe any of it.
The main prize should be engraved Captain's Prize 2018. Not Captain's Day Winner - as the Winner of Captain's Day - receives the Captain's Prize. Everything else is engraved with Captain's Day 2018.
Nearest the Pin/Straightest Drive, in our humble opinion, is the only additional wording to be allowed.
Division 1/2/3 Winner is OK, but don't go breaking their heart by putting Runner Up / Third / Fourth / Fifth / Ladies Nearest the Pin Second Shot. (How can they ever go home and say "Look Darling, I won this!" -For coming 3rd in Division 2)
Some club Captains - (the really old, rich & traditional clubs) will only give a silver spoon, or a pebble, or similar.
The more modern and successful Captains will spend their annual subscription on prizes.
Consider whether the competition is a singles men only affair, or a pairs/team family friendly event, bouncy castle, relaxed dress code for the day!
Have a really impressive Captain's Prize - but bear in mind that it has to be taken home to a house, and enjoyed for all time - so the biggest piece in the world might not go down too well ‘indoors’...
Talk to former Captains, especially from other clubs to see what they would do again - and not ditto.
Have a few spare gift/prizes for the unforseen event that will happen - hole in one/thanks to the Caterers/Club Manager/your Significant Other.
Some Captains relax the dress code, hire a magician and clowns for the children - and the clubhouse is packed -and the bar takes thousands.
We have engraved crystal for hundreds of Captains, so have lots of experience in helping the prizes fit your budget.
Get your prizes from Majestic crystal and we will give you a commemorative piece, engraved with your details*, and quite possibly, complimentary crystal for your
Charity Day, especially if it starts with H.
Last but not least - don't forget to join your County Captains Association - great friends, golf and food for the rest of your life!
