Redbourn Golf Club is to welcome Ladies European Tour (LET) professional and former Solheim Cup player Becky Brewerton to a morning clinic and golf day on Friday, August 1.
From 10am, the Welsh-born golfer will be providing guests of the Ladies Yonex Golf Day with a display of her skills and answering questions about her illustrious career, which includes three tour victories and two Solheim Cups.
The 31-year-old will talk visitors through basic shot-making, the long game plus chipping and putting, utilising the extensive practice facilities at Redbourn, which include a 20-bay driving range, short game area and putting green.
The event will also include an opportunity to try, and be custom fitted for, the latest equipment from Yonex, the day’s sponsor.
In the afternoon there is an opportunity for a limited number of golfers to take part in an nine-hole competition on the Ver Course. Each fourball will be joined by the four-time Women’s World Cup of Golf player.
Looking forward to the day, Brewerton said: “Yonex is committed to developing the ladies game, and I’m excited to be at Redbourn Golf Club, which, I understand, boasts a thriving and active ladies section.”
Ian McDowell, Redbourn Golf Club general manager, said: “It’s rare to have the opportunity to get up close with professional sportsmen and women, so it is exciting to be offering the opportunity for people to come and listen to, talk to and play with a professional tournament golfer.
“We have seen an increase in lady members and visitors at Redbourn since we enhanced the ladies section within our pro shop and it is our hope to continue this trend and give more women access to the game.”
