Matlock Golf Club members have come together to celebrate another successful season.

Unlike the previous year, the late spring and excellent summer provided uninterrupted golf and thanks to Derek McJannet and his greens staff, the course has played very well throughout the season.

Throughout the competition season, members have enjoyed quality golf and have achieved special success individually and as teams at both county and regional levels.
