This is the second time, as Lady Captain for Lynda, as she was previously in office in 1999.

One of her aims this year is to encourage more ladies and girls to join the club and enjoy its facilities. Her charity this year is The Alzheimer’s Association.

• TOWNELEY Golf Club held an open competition at the weekend, with all the proceeds going to the Jed McCabe Benevolent Fund.

The popular member is now paralysed after an accident on a golf trip to Scarborough last August.

The day and night events proved a great success, with almost £3,000 raised.

The winner of the stableford competition was Mick Gorton on the card from Mick Canby, after both amassed 43 points. Former captain Anthony Hargreaves was third, two points adrift.

Canby was nearest the pin at the 6th and Dave Blackburn at the 17th.
