Ladies head for The Belfry

PRESTON members Kate Clarkson and Sue Green have made it through to the National Grand Final of the American Golf Ladies Championship after a tough regional qualifying competition at High Legh Park.

The pair will now take their places at Ryder Cup venue The Belfry on September 9 and 10 to battle it out over the Brabazon Course for the title of best ladies pair in the UK.

In a closely fought contest, they beat Esther McNeill and Jane Martin from Barlaston and High Legh members Christine McEwan and Lesley Hewison.

All three pairs will now take on qualifiers from all over the UK in the National Grand Final at the iconic Midlands Ryder Cup venue.

“After the success of our Nine-Hole and Junior Championships last year, we added the Ladies Championship for 2016,” said Daniel Gathercole, head of marketing at American Golf.

“We’ve been delighted with the amount of ladies taking part and look forward to welcoming all the qualifiers to The Belfry for a wonderful weekend of golf that will end with the crowning of our first ever ladies champions.”

Entry to all of the American Golf Championships, including the American Golf Ladies Championship, is free and is part of the nationwide retailer’s drive to promote the game of golf and get more people out playing golf more often.
