The Ladies of Aberystwyth Golf Club have welcomed their new captain, Ruth Jones.
At the recent AGM outgoing Captain Sue Sherman said “It has been an honour to captain the ladies section during the club’s centenary year, I have enjoyed the year and wish to thank all who have assisted, especially the past captains who helped me every month.”
Ruth thanked Sue for working so hard during the year and, on behalf of the ladies section presented Sue with a framed picture of the clubhouse.
Ruth then drove-in in the traditional way; hitting a number of balls up the first fairway to lady members assembled to claim each ball as it landed. Ruth hit some lovely drives, hopefully a sign of good golf to come during the year.
Members enjoyed coffee and mince pies, kindly provided by the new captain before playing nine holes of golf.
