Memories spanning 100 years were shared at Colne Golf Club’s first ex-Captain’s Day.

The event, which included a golf competition and three-course meal, was attended by 21 ex-captains and was hailed a huge success by 18th President Tony Ingram .

And now due to its popularity, it is set to become an annual addition to the golf club’s calendar.

2009 captain Mr Ingram, who helped organise the event with George Bradbury, said: “It was good, everybody enjoyed it.

“A lot of people made the effort to get there, which was fabulous.

“People had photographs out, showing what had gone on over the past 100 years.

“George had wanted to do it for a lot of years, and with me being President now we decided to get it organised.”

Competition winners from the ex-Captain’s day were as follows:

• 1st: Ray Sharpe

• 2nd: John Burgoyne

• 3rd: Peter Wilson
