JIMMY Dugdale is pictured driving into office for the 2013 season at Towneley Golf Club.

Jimmy has been a member for over 30 years, and in that time, the 11-handicapper has won four majors and recorded two hole in ones.

A married man with two daughters, he works for Lancashire County Council as an attendant driver.

The 6-year-old sees this honour as the pinnacle of his long golfing career.

After driving in, the annual Captain’s v Secretary’s challenge match followed, with Dugdale’s Clarets defeating Witt’s Wonders 7 points to 6.

Gary Collinson and Anthony Hargreaves claimed the highest aggregate win prize of 5 and 3.

The previous day, the very successful Winter League Finals Day was held, with Steve Wyatt claiming top spot in the league, with Terry Clough finishing as runner-up, and Gary Turner third.

“Headmaster” Steve Bird took the Ken Pott Trophy for the second time with an excellent 44 points.

Steve Wilson was runner-up on the day with 41 points, and president Mick Bradshaw was third on the card.

Nearest the pin awards went to the Harrison twins Matt and Dave at holes 6 and 17.

Meanwhile, still at Towneley, Rick Bradshaw and Geoff Hurst were in tremendous form to come top of the field in the men’s foursomes qualifier.

They carded a gross score of 61 to win the competition from new members Javed Drinkwater and Keith Pickard, who scored 63. Nearest the pin awards went to Marvin McEvoy at the 6th hole and Fred Baldwin at the 17th.
