Club chairman Peter Beardsley thanked them for their efforts and huge contribution to junior golf development over the years in their role of developing and co-ordinating golf at Matlock Golf Club.

He said: “As a result of Carol and David’s efforts, junior golf at the club has moved to a new level and is now being further aided with the use of the great new resource facilities of the floodlit driving range and custom fitting centre.”

During the evening, coaching certificates, junior golf passports and club trophies were presented by the club captain, lady captain and club president.

Junior player of the year was Tom Mooney, with junior rookie of the year named as Tom Fennah.

Daniel Latymer was the most improved player of the year, while Ryan Gebbie was announced as being the 2014 junior captain.

New junior members were made to feel welcome and introduced to members during the evening.
