Linda Dale wasn’t going to allow the small matter of snow and fog put a damper on her first official engagement as lady captain of Beverley & East Riding Golf Club.
Instead, she and a hardy bunch of fellow lady golf club members braved the harsh weather on the Westwood to celebrate the lady captain’s drive-in, which involved hitting drives off the first tee for members to chase.
The ladies then returned to the clubhouse for a beetle drive and soup and sandwiches, and the balls were exchanged for prizes.
Linda is ladies’ captain for 2015 and is looking forward to the year ahead after being vice-captain to Sally Norman in 2014.
Ladies’ golf has seen a drop in numbers in recent years, a trend which Beverley Golf Club is hoping to reverse. The club has moved more ladies’ competitions to weekends for those who cannot play during the week, while free lessons for beginners are again being lined up for the spring.
“We have lots of events planned for the forthcoming year and I look forward to some memorable days of golf here at Beverley. We would also love to see new people at the club who are interested in learning the game. We will do all we can to support them.”
“Golf is a great activity which includes health benefits and a sense of personal achievement played in a friendly, social atmosphere.”
Linda and fellow lady members are pictured in front of the anti mill for a traditional picture to commemorate the drive-in, while other images show Linda braving the elements to show off her skills.
