Buckingham Golf Club’s 100th year began in style with over 200 members and guests attending the annual Drive In at the weekend.

Entering their centenary year, the club are staging a number of events to celebrate the landmark in style, with the traditional hand over from last year’s captains followed by the Drive In kicking off the 2014 season.

Despite the horrific weather, the new captains – Jon Carter, Bernie Howe, Peter West and Gus Davidson (pictured) – rose to the occasion, donning 1914 clothing and smashing their tee shots back down the 18th fairway. The raffle, meanwhile, raised £300 for the Captains’ charities.
