St Clement's Golf Club in Jersey celebrates centenary

St Clement's Golf club is celebrating 100 years since it was set up by a group of female golfers.

To commemorate this anniversary, a golf competition is taking place, with participants dressing in 1920s style outfits.

The club's former captains are coming back to take part in a competition, where they'll be a presentation then celebration of the club. 

Co-Club Captain Joan Streets says having a golf club founded by women was unheard of at the time: 

"Unusually this club was set up by a group of ladies a year before the men's golf club.

"Ladies were playing golf here before the men were - and that is very interesting. 

"A few years ago we were down to 18 members, but through a lot of hard work and development, we're now up to 50 members and were the proud recipient of an England Gold Award for development."
