CLACTON Golf Club's ladies' section held their annual general meeting for 2019.

Incoming lady captain Lin Euston was inaugurated into the post with the gift of her lady captain’s jumper, brooch and an impressive bouquet from the club.

She started her year of office by braving the inclement weather with her drive-in down the 18th fairway, achieving a creditable distance into a head wind.

Before the AGM, the ladies competed in the annual Captains v Secretaries match, with teams of players being allocated to each division.

After two years of a draw, this year saw the secretaries' team claim the event.

Clacton's juniors played in their fourth Top Dogs competition.

There were some terrific scores, with Ethan Dalzell coming first with a fantastic 49 points.

Henry Goodwin came second with 41, followed by Cameron Curtis, on countback from Milo Locke, both with 39 points.

Clacton's men played the fourth round of their winter Top Dogs matches.

Also finishing with 47 points were G Roberts and P Hart, who received 19 points.

In third place, on countback, were L Harmon and I Johnston, with 18 points, from P Green and R Cory, with both pairs scoring 46 points.

The top pairs are A Brothers and J Moore, followed by A Corbyn and R Foster.
