Nelson Golf Club’s new captains got their season off to a belated start last Sunday – a week after snow had stymied their plans for the traditionl drive-in the previous week.

Dozens of members braved a crisp frosty morning to see Trevor Dickinson and Jackie Swift face the daunting task of driving from Nelson’s first tee.

A sweep on distance achieved by the drives raised over £100 for Pendle Hospice.
