Pontardawe Golf Club were very pleased to host the Glamorgan Ladies County Golf Association Autumn meet on Sunday 6th September 2015. The 1st tee was reserved for the Ladies with 70 Lady golfers teeing off from 9.00am until 1.30pm, with some great scores being posted in a fiercely fought competition format by teams of three.
 
The ladies were full of compliments for the magnificent condition and set up of the course and that's all down to the head green keeper Jamie Probert and his ground staff team.

The ladies were looked after by the Pontardawe Ladies Captain Pat Jones and her committee and the members, who moved their tee off times to accommodate them. Collette Matthews Twaite and her bar staff looked after the ladies beverage requirements and our head chef Graham Hurren provided them with some of his culinary excellence.
