Two of Woodhall Spa Golf Club’s lady leading lights are heading to Holme Hall GC this week to contest the English Women’s Open Matchplay Championship.

India Clyburn (pictured), who is a past English girls’ champion and has played in winning England teams at the women and girls’ Home Internationals, will be joined in the field by fellow Woodhall Spa member Billie-Jo Smith.

It is the first time the Lincolnshire club has hosted a national championship and the heathland course is where Tony Jacklin played his golf as a junior.

India and Billy-Joe and all the competitors will play 36 holes on the first day (Thursday), and the Spa duo will be hoping to be amongst the top 16 players to go forward to the match play stages on the Friday and Saturday.
