The new captain and lady captain have been installed at Clitheroe Golf Club, marking the occasions with their traditional drive ins.

All turned out on a wet and windy day to welcome the new captain for 2014, Simon Raine, and to see him drive in.

Though it was a cold day, hot toddies had been supplied to keep the members warm with a pie and peas lunch served after the golf.

The lady members also welcomed their new lady captain for 2014, Maureen Micklewright, onto the first tee for her drive-in.

She and more than 40 lady members braved the showers to take part in a nine-hole 
Stableford team competition, won by Judith Bishop, Rosemary Fort, Carole Brown and Sue Cartledge.

Doreen Bolton and Lauraine Wall were the joint winners of the “Guess the Length of Lady Captain’s Drive” contest. There was also a bridge competition held on the day, won by Marian Niven and Rosemary Sims. The ladies of the bridge section joined the golfers for afternoon tea to complete an enjoyable day.
