Women urged to take up golf

THE ladies section at Wath Golf Club are holding open days to encourage more women to take up the sport.

A tour of the clubhouse and course will be followed by a taster session on the practice field with club professional Chris Bassett.

Then there will be a light-hearted putting competition with a presentation and refreshments to follow.

Ladies captain Judy Williams said: “This is an ideal opportunity for ladies of any age to experience what golf at Wath has to offer.”

Bassett and his team will follow up with group lessons for beginners if there is sufficient demand.

The open days are Friday June 10 at 5pm and Saturday June 11 at 3pm.

Anyone interested can book their place by calling (01709) 878609 or email wathladies@gmail.com.
