FORMER Ringway Golf Club Lady Captain Glenys Ball is looking forward to her new role as Captain of the prestigious Manchester and District Society of Past Lady Captains in 2017.

Glenys succeeds Margaret Ashworth (North Manchester GC) and is urging all past Lady Captains from golf clubs based within a 25-mile radius of Manchester Town Hall to take part in the society competitions this season.
