LADBROOK Park Golf Club turned back the clock 100 years last week as members took part in a thrilling competition with a slight handicap - hickory shafts!
As part of their centenary year the Tanworth-in-Arden club ordered 50 sets of 100-year-old golf clubs for their members to use in an exciting pastime competition.
Also, arguably the biggest event of the year took place last Friday - the Captains Centurions.
Captain Graham Taylor set up the competition which only allowed members with a combined age and membership tally of over 100.
A large turnout saw 95 people take to the course and it was 69-year-old Roy Taysum and Jean Barnard who came out victorious.
Delighted 15-handicapper Roy said that he was bewildered as he hardly ever wins any of the club competitions.
"I'm surprised and bewildered," he said. "When I first joined the club ladies were not allowed on the course so it shows how much the game has moved on as I went round with two women."
There was also something for all the losers as each Centurion was presented with a specially commissioned badge to mark their achievement.
Former head professional and centurion captain, Graham, said the celebrations have been a big success.
"First of all I would just like to say how much of an honour it has been for me to be captain in the anniversary year.
"I started coming here as a 15-year-old lad, and I've got some good memories.
"Everyone has had a magnificent time and despite the bad weather we've managed to enjoy some great days."
