OVER 100 members of Nelson Golf Club braved the drizzle to see their new captains make the traditional Drive-In at the weekend.

For the first time, the club has selected a Seniors Captain - Peter Halstead - who joined the Men’s Captain Peter Wheadon, Ladies’ Captain Margaret Taylor, and Junior Captain Ben Short to make their first drives in their new positions.

A sweep was held on distances driven, and the princely sum of £340 was raised for the club’s chosen charity, Pendleside Hospice.
