Matlock Golf Club members have celebrated the end of a successful 2011 and the beginning of what they hope will be an equally impressive 2012 for the club.
Prior to the New Year’s Eve bash, the captain’s team played the vice-captain’s team, with the vice-captain’s team snatching a 6.5 to 5.5 result. Gary Huckerby scored a hole in one on the 15th hole.
On New Year’s Eve, another packed clubhouse of members and guests enjoyed the normal festivities with excellent food, and an evening’s entertainment of song and dance.
Highlight of the evening was the celebration of Don Heathcote’s year of captaincy and the handover to Bob Whyld, the captain for 2012, as well as the presentation of the captain’s blazer to Bob Whyld.
In front of a crowded first tee, Bob Whyld then carried out the traditional first tee driveoff, the winning landing point being won by Sadie Clayton.
In the car parking draw, Brian Sanderson was the winner.
The club’s would like to offer best wishes to Bob Whyld in his captain’s year 2012 and to Ian Marr as his vice-captain.
