Didsbury’s new officers were given good weather as they enjoyed a 13-hole Texas Scramble before facing the ordeal of the traditional Drive-In from the first tee, watched by a full gallery of members, friends and family.
The new Lady Captain was sung on to the tee on her birthday, and she responded with an excellent drive just short of the green to deserved applause.
The Junior Captain Amy Sarjantson, who is the first-ever junior to serve two years in the role, hit a typically fearless drive just to the left of the green.
No pressure then on new Captain Billy Wells who became one of very few Captains in recent years to land on the green to the delight of the gallery and set a stiff target for his successor Mike Black in 2018.
Then it was into the clubhouse to enjoy great camaraderie, good music and excellent food to complete a happy and memorable day for the new officers.
