PONTEFRACT and District Golf Club’s new season started in style when 93 members and guests attended an excellent pre-season dinner.

It was followed by an entertaining after dinner speech from Leeds United legend Eddie Gray.

Members responded with a resounding chorus of Leeds United’s theme song “Marching on Together.”

Now in its 108th year, the club’s standing in the local golfing world will be seen again this year when it hosts a Leeds Union area match and a Union associates members meeting.

Over the winter period improvements to the first three holes have been completed.

The club also stages social events. Live shows are underway, starting with Elvis and Diana Ross tribute acts.

Any golfers wanting to join Pontefract GC, which is a private members’ club, should contact the manager on 01977-792241 or visit the club’s website at www.pdgc.co.uk to obtain an application form.
