The unseasonably mild weather was perfect for the celebration of the appointment of this year’s Lady Captain, with the traditional First Hole Drive-in taking place at Matlock Golf Club.

Around 40 ladies, and Bob Whyld, captain of Matlock Golf Club, gathered to watch Veda Kay hit her first drive of the year, almost straight up the first fairway. 

21 ladies then played in a Stableford competition over 11 holes, which was won by Pat McGivern with 28 points, and the runner-up was Jane Butler with 23 points. The celebrations then continued in the clubhouse with drinks and refreshments.
