There have been 25 new junior members this year, which are the lifeblood of the club for the future.

Among many successes was Amber's win in the U16 English Girls' Championship and also as a Norfolk Ladies first team player -

The veterans' section also enjoyed a successful year under the leadership of Alan Sandell, and Martin wished next year's captain Ken Besley every success.
As a result of course designer David Steel's visit and report, many of his suggestions about the future layout of the course have been put in hand, and already some of these are giving a new look to the course.
Club treasurer Martyn Gibson presented a satisfactory report, with only a small increase in subscriptions called for in 2010. Martin Hazard thanked all the staff for their efforts in the last year, and welcomed Alan Malin as the club's new captain for 2010. He enjoyed his year in office very much and said it had been an honour and a privilege.
