Lady golfers at Bulwell Hall Park have scored a hole in one for charity.

Now they are aiming to raise the proifile of their club in a bid to attract more members, particularly younger players.

The ladies’ section at Nottingham City Golf Club has been thriving for many years.

And each season, they raise money for charity through their special competition days when players donate their course fees.

This year, lady captain June Rimmington and president Marlene Broadhurst hosted their own special days, while a charity day was held too.

All helped to raise a total of £250, which was presented to the renowned Hucknall-based Hope Lea Project, which helps for people with learning disabilities and their carers .

Hope Lea managing director Judith Storey received a cheque at the project’s headquarters on Watnall Road from June, who is an old friend.

The ladies’ section currently has 31 members. But it is keen to recruit more juniors.

“The boys’ section of the club is thriving, but we have no girls at present,” said June.

“We are desperate for some younger members, who would receive free coaching lessons. Any girls interested should ring the club on 0115 9272767.”
