WIDNES Golf Club has witnessed the changing of the guard.
Captain John Penney has been officially welcomed into his post at Highfield Road.
Club president Bill Ferguson congratulated the new incumbent as he teed off what is sure to be a busy year.
The drive-in followed hot on the heels of the corresponding ceremony which saw ladies' captain Pauline Roberts officially installed.
Meanwhile, one of the last engagements for Dennis Ormesher, who Penney has succeeded, was the annual club dinner.
