Photographs, Negatives, Slides and Plates of Golf
Armed with their golf clubs and attired in their best togs, this is a group photograph of the committee members of Clitheroe Golf Club in 1921. Founded in 1891, the club moved to Barrow Garden in 1932 so this photograph was taken at the former course at Horrocksford. I do not have details of the 1921 meeting but do have some information of a meeting held two years later. Many of the committee would still be in office during this period. Anyway, in 1923 Miss Barbara Eastham was re-elected as president, a position she held for some years. Mr. H. L. Rishton was to continue as captain whilst Mr. B. E. Jones was to act as club secretary, assisted by Mr. H. Bootham. The role of treasurer was filled by Mr. D. Lister, with W. Kay and J. W. Lambert as auditors. Committee members were Arthur Langshaw, J. H. Satterthwaite and L. C. Thomas. In September 1931 it was announced that Clitheroe Golf Club had secured the services of James Braid, the ex-professional champion, for the laying-out of their new course.
