There was a full house at Clitheroe Golf Club last Thursday for the annual Prize Presentation evening when winners of the major competitions played throughout the season received their trophies and prizes.
The master of ceremonies, Competition Secretary Neil Fawcett, introduced club captain Ian Walsh, who presented the majority of the awards, assisted by the president Vic Morris and the junior organiser Peter Hargreaves.
There was particular praise for several of the juniors, who featured prominently in the trophy presentations, and also for the members of the championship-winning team that represented Clitheroe in another successful season in the Blackburn and Darwen Junior Town League.
The event was also an opportunity for new members to introduce themselves and make the acquaintance of the members present at the evening, among them the newly-appointed General Manager Mel Brooke, who took up his duties on Monday this week.
