The ladies’ scratch team at Whipsnade Park Golf Club has received a big boost after securing a three-year sponsorship deal with Flamstead tree specialists Majestic Trees.

The squad, comprising eight players – most of whom live in or around Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted – are in the Scratch League of the Hertfordshire County Ladies Golf Association and will play eight matches over the summer.

The other clubs in the league are Redbourn, Bishops Stortford, Welwyn Garden City and Mid Herts, with matches beginning this month. Each team will tackle the other four clubs at home and away.

Captain Jill Lee said: “We’d like to thank Steve McCurdy, managing director of Majestic Trees, for his support and promise to do our best to come top of the league in the 2014 season.”

Mr McCurdy added: “We are proud to sponsor the team, they look very professional in their new kit and I know they have been training hard for the new season – we wish them lots of luck.”

The squad members are Lynn Hinson, Chris Smith, Lorraine Charles, Jill Lee, Julie Jones, Nichola Goddard, Alison Sexton,and Andrea King.

Whipsnade Park Golf Club is set in the Chiltern Hills, and the mature tree-lined 18 hole, par 73 parkland course is also bordered on two sides by Whipsnade Wild Animal Park.
