KEEN golfers have been named the new captains of their club as players raised cash for charity.

Carole Robinson has been unveiled as the new Lady Captain of Gosfield Lake Golf Club following the traditional drive-in ceremony.

She took over the reins of the Ladies Section following two years’ service by Maud Instone, who had an extended year due to the Covid pandemic.

Carole assumes the position of Lady Captain for the second time, and has been a chairwoman of a number of club committees and is currently a vice president of Gosfield Lake Golf Club.

She has only just recovered from a badly broken upper arm and injured shoulder.

However, she was still able to hit a creditable drive down the centre of the fairway.

The drive-in ceremony was also a chance for the club to raise some money for the Lady Captain’s charity, the Brain Tumour Charity.

This was done in memory of a neighbour’s child who died after a late tumour diagnosis.

The week also saw the new golfing season begin, with another drive-in for incoming Men’s Captain John Barrick.

Gordon Dunn putted out to mark the end of his time in office.

During Mr Dunn’s two-year leadership, the club says it has achieved many personal milestones, lots of good golfing performances and raised more than £5,500 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
