Members at Oswestry Golf Club were rewarded for their successes over the past year.

Winners of club championships over the past 12 months were presented with their silverware on the same night.

More than 70 people attended on the evening organised by the 2018 mens and ladies captains.

Steve Ashworth and Marie Male were club captains for the year, responsible for organising events at the club and for selecting the charities that the club will raise money for.

Steve said: “My selected charity to raise funds for this year was the Stroke Association – Marie also chose an Alzheimer’s charity.

“We’re unsure yet how much money we’ve managed to raise this year through charity events but come the end of the year we’ll be presenting the two charities with a cheque each.

“It’ll be nice to see how much we’ve raised. The club members and the club have been very supportive and helpful.”

This is the first time Steve has captained a club. He spoke of how pleased he was to have taken on the role.

He added: “It’s been a tremendous year, I’ve had really good support from the club.

“My time as captain here comes to an end in December but looking back at the year it’s been very rewarding and a really good experience.

“The presentation was a nice way to look back at some of the success members have had at the club this year.”

Along with organising the presentation evening for the members, Steve and Marie have spent the year organising a variety of events for those at the club to enjoy.

Steve said: “We’ve had a lot of good events this year and still have some to come before December.

“Our competition on St Patrick’s Day was very well-received among the members.

“Still to come we have the night golf event tonight which has 48 people set to take part. There will be a firework display at the start before we play on the lit-up course here.

“It’s the first time Oswestry Golf Club has done this sort of event so it will be interesting to see how it goes.”

Steve was pleased to be able to get his name on the honours board at the club during his year at captain, after what was a busy year.

He said: “My golf has been enjoyable, I’ve played a lot of it this year – it’s been very busy.

“Both myself and Marie were able to win a club competition throughout the year.

“To be able to get our names on the board during the year we’ve spent as captains here was something that really topped the year off.

“I’m looking forward to focusing more on my golf come 2019.”
