Claire Johnston has been elected Lady Captain of Dunmurry Golf Club for 2015.

Speaking following the recent announcement, Claire commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our past Lady Captain Helen for inviting me to be her vice captain.

“Helen has worked tirelessly with her committee throughout the year and has implemented many changes which will benefit the ladies section greatly.”

Claire continued: “It is an honour to be asked to be Lady Captain and I look forward to representing the club in my year of office.”

The new Lady Captain added: “My chosen charity for the year is TinyLife, a local premature baby charity.

“I have been a member of Dunmurry Golf Club since 1989 and enjoyed playing and captaining many teams.

“My late mother and father-in-law both held office. Olive Johnston, Lady Captain in 1960 and Dr R A Johnston was Club Captain in 1967. Pam Young, my sister-in-law was Lady Captain in 2000,” she explained.

“I am delighted that Fionnuala McGrady has agreed to be my Vice Captain so together with the committee we will endeavour to make 2015 a good year for the club and ladies golf.”
