Redbourn Golf Club will welcome Ladies European Tour pro and former Solheim Cup player Becky Brewerton to a morning clinic and golf day on Friday.

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.

The 31-year-old will talk visitors through basic shot-making, the long game, plus chipping and putting.

The event will also include an opportunity to try, and be custom fitted for, the latest equipment from Yonex.

In the afternoon there is an opportunity for golfers to take part in a 9-hole competition on the Ver Course, where for two holes, each fourball will be joined by Brewerton.

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.”
