MATLOCK Golf Club has announced its new captains for the year.

The club captain is Don Heathcote, who was driven into office at midnight on New Year’s Eve after a party in the clubhouse where he was presented with his captain’s blazer by outgoing captain Barry Smith.

Don is a retired mechanical engineer and the captain’s charity for the year is Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. The first event for the year was a Texas Scramble, organised to take place on Saturday, January 29.

Her chosen charity for the year is Cancer Research.
