Parley Golf Centre’s annual Christmas Texas Scramble competition was a huge success as members took on the new course.
The seniors and ladies braved wintry conditions then retired to the clubhouse for Christmas dinner.
They dressed in festive-wear and were impressed with the state of the fairways and greens after the inclement weather.
Earlier this year the club opened its new course that followed a £250,000 investment and saw membership soar.
The annual Christmas round is always a popular date in the calendar.
Manager Daryl Dampney said: “The members always look forward to the Christmas Texas
Scramble and we saw some great outfits on show.
“It’s a fun occasion and everyone had a good dinner afterwards. The course is playing really well and next year promises to be even better.”
