125th Anniversary Celebrations Start In Traditional Fashion

Aberdovey Golf Club kicked off its celebration of 125 years of golf with the annual "Captains' Drive In" taking place on New Year's Day. The 3 new Captains were clothed in traditional golfing attire from the time when the club was founded in 1892 and used golf clubs with hickory shafts to hit their shots, much to the amusement of the 200+ members who turned out to support them!

The new Captains also held a 'guess the length of the drive' competition and £215 was raised for their joint Captains' charity which, this year, is Macmillan Cancer Support.
