Stowmarket Golf Club’s new captain Dick Taylor started his year of office as tradition demands by driving off on the course’s first tee on Easter Saturday. The theme for the event was based on Taylor’s status as a gold certificate holder for high performance car driving. Despite an icy head wind, snow flurries, traffic lights, cones and club members in swinging sixties dress, nothing could put Taylor off his swing. The new captain hit a confident shot straight down the fairway in excess of 200 yards. All proceeds raised on the day will go to the captain’s chosen charity Multiple Sclerosis Society.
