Sandwiched between a morning and afternoon team golf competition, Longridge Golf Club’s captains ceremonially drove into office on Saturday to launch the new season.

Always a tricky moment with an audience of expectant members in attendance, but Andrew Slater opened the year as he means to go on with a mighty 306 yards – a great effort.

Moving to the ladies tee, Lady Captain Ann Robinson managed 168 yards, whilst Junior Captain Alex Forrest displayed the benefits of coaching received as a youngster with an excellent 285 yards.

These drives were recorded for the benefit of a sweepstake competition – the first fundraising venture this year for the captains’ nominated charities – Rosemere Cancer Care and Garstang and District Lions’ Club.
