Kedleston Park launches women's scratch events

KEDLESTON PARK has announced that it will host two new Women’s Open Scratch competitions, The Kedleston Rose Bowl and The Kedleston Senior Salver.

Billed as the women’s equivalent of The Kedleston Goose, the inaugural Kedleston Rose Bowl will be played by amateurs over 36-holes on the club’s championship course on Sunday August 24, while the Senior Salver will be contested by amateur over the age of 50 by the date of competition. .

Derbyshire-based Ladies European Tour star Melissa Reid is a keen supporter of the new events, and she said: “It’s always nice to see new events popping up for girls’/women’s golf; the more opportunities the better.

“If it wasn’t for these kind of events growing up, then I would have struggled to get the passion I did. It’s great for these events to be on good golf courses, too, like Kedleston which is one of my favourites in Derbyshire and I played a lot growing up.”

Ian Neal, chairman of Kedleston Park Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to be launching two Women’s Open Scratch events as we look to promote ladies golf in Derbyshire.

“We hope the Kedleston Rose Bowl will share similar success to the well-established Kedleston Goose, the men’s equivalent, whose previous winners include some of golf’s most famous names, including the likes of Lee Westwood and David Lynn.”
