Kedleston Park, one of Derbyshire's premier golf clubs, has announced details of two exciting new Women’s Open Scratch competitions, The Kedleston Rose Bowl and The Kedleston Senior Salver.

The inaugural Kedleston Rose Bowl, the women’s equivalent of The Kedleston Goose, will be contested by amateurs over 36 holes on the Par 72 mature parkland championship course at Kedleston Park on Sunday 24th August 2014; while the Senior Salver, for amateurs that have reached the age of 50 by the date of competition, will be contested over 18 holes of the stunning Derbyshire course the same day.

Melissa Reid, the Derbyshire-based Ladies European Tour Star, is a keen supporter, commenting: “It's always nice to see new events popping up for girls/ women golf; The more opportunities the better. If it wasn't for these kind of events growing up, then I would have struggled to get the passion I did. It's great for these events to be on good golf courses too, like Kedleston, which is one of my favourites in Derbyshire and I played a lot growing up.”

Ian Neal, Chairman of Kedleston Park Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to be launching two Women’s Open Scratch events as we look to promote ladies golf in Derbyshire. We hope the Kedleston Rose Bowl will share similar success to the well-established Kedleston Goose, the men’s equivalent, whose previous winners include the likes of Lee Westwood, David Lynn and Mark Foster.”

The competitions are open to all amateur female golfers, from recognised golf clubs, possessing an official CONGU handicap, with a handicap limit of 12.4. Both events will be Scratch strokeplay in format and take place over 36 holes and 18 holes, respectively.

The cost for entry is £25 for the Kedleston Rose Bowl and £15 for the Kedleston Senior Salver, which includes a free practice, Monday-Friday, the week preceding the competition. The club is inviting entries until the closing date of 12th August 2014.
