THE Shepparton Golf Club opened its fairway for a special Lady President’s Opening Day last week, which saw 15 past and present presidents from five decades attend as special guests to celebrate the new season.

The first day attracted more than 50 players to the green, who were joined by 30 others to enjoy a special lunch to celebrate the new season.

President, Margie Sneyd said, “It was great to see president from 1980 to 1982 and life member, Win Wilson, who recently celebrated her 98th birthday, in attendance.

“The past presidents have so much knowledge and experience that, luckily for me, they are happy to share.

“We also welcomed some new players. We look forward to an increase in membership thanks to the wonderful new golf programs and lessons available for beginners and advanced players.”
