The current President of Bedfordshire Ladies County Golf Limited is none other than Claudine Tate, one of our own!. This is an honorary and prestigious position within the county that adds significantly to this Club's exposure and profile at the highest level. The ladies and men at county level have a very close and profitable association. The course, which we know is one of the most challenging in the county, is naturally considered for major county events. Claudine's role gives her a watching brief over all of the inter county matches and she lends further her support to the 1st and 2nd scratch teams and the Juniors & Seniors.
