In their 125th year, Royston Golf Club have voted in their new captains.
Club captain Ray Boddy and ladies’ captain Helen Steverson were dressed in 1892-style golfing attire and used hickory-shafted clubs for the occasion to commemorate that the club enters its 125th anniversary during their year in office.
However, it was junior captain George Sanders who brought the event back to the modern day with his new technology driver and well-honed swing as he smashed his drive 194 yards.
Seniors captain Mike Thrower shrugged off some dodgy drives in his round earlier in the day to achieve a competitive 155 yards.
The hickory-shafted clubs saw Boddy hit his drive 124 yards and Steverson, desperately trying to retain her hat in windy conditions and with long skirt and heeled shoes not helping her cause, a credible 91 yards.
