New club captain Paul Borkowski celebrated the start of his year of office with the largely ceremonial drive off the 18th tee – a very good one it was too, writes Ann Desmoulins.

With the course so wet, the usual distance estimates by the members became a draw for the winner in the clubhouse and a total of £245 was raised from this for junior golf.

Paul’s drive was followed by drives by the new ladies’ captain, Cherry Liell, and the new juniors’ captain, Austin Watson-Jones.

There was a cheque for £5,523.54 presented to representatives of Devon Link Up, the chosen charity of out-going captains Richard Beard and Liz Rogers. Paul then provided a delicious lunch for all those present.
