Newburgh-on-Ythan’s senior golfer has been awarded honorary life membership.

Bobby Smith, 90, was presented with a framed certificate by club captain Jeff Winslade.

Bobby celebrated his birthday just a few weeks ago and is still a keen competitor in the seniors’ events.

He plays in all weathers and recorded his first hole-in-one last year.

One of the highlights for the veteran of the fairways was playing Newburgh’s 10th hole with former Open champion Paul Lawrie during a club night last summer.
