WHALLEY Golf Club organised its own Ladies’ Day staging a day at the races with all the pomp and circumstance of Ascot.

More than 160 members and friends dressed for the occasion, large hats and all, enjoying champagne and smoked salmon plus fresh salmon sandwiches, strawberries and ice-cream while basking in the sunshine.

The Totes were kept very busy and the winners celebrated their success in style.

This successful event, which was in aid of Whalley Golf Club Centenary Fund, will hopefully be repeated during the club’s centenary next year.
