WINDERMERE Golf Club has held its annual AGM and prize giving for the ladies section and in doing so, has welcomed a new lady captain and lady vice-captain into office.
Helen Partington is the new lady captain for 2016 and will be supported by vice-captain Anne Hart, both of whom have been members at Windermere for five and seven years respectively.
The evening also recognised Jane Harper as winner of the Ladies Championship and Wendy Foster who took the runner’s-up position.
The following morning, more than 40 members turned out in fine conditions, to toast the new lady captain’s ‘drive in’ off the first tee and last year’s lady captain Pam Tigg putted out on the 18th green.
Members thanked her for all her efforts over the past year, with two separate nine-hole competitions and lunch, finishing off an enjoyable 24 hours of celebration.
“It’s a great honour to be selected as lady captain and I am very much looking forward to the year ahead, supported by Anne and the ladies section,” said Helen.
“We welcome Helen and Anne to their new positions and wish them well in the year ahead,” said chairman Cliff Heath. “Both are experienced golfers and I’m sure their contribution will help Windermere continue to be one of the best club’s in the county.
“We welcome their input in one of our most significant years ahead as we celebrate our 125th anniversary.”
