Hoping for great golf and good weather during their year of captaincy, Longridge Golf Club’s new captains, Mike Catlow and Linda Hacking, drove into office last Saturday.

Always a daunting moment with an audience on the first tee, club captain Mike, a member for 11 years, drove 277 yards.

Lady captain Linda, a member for seven years and following a family tradition of golf club captaincy in her native Scotland drove 156 yards.

A sweepstake resulting from their drives commenced the fundraising for their charities – Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Diabetes UK.
