Last night (18 October) the All-Party Parliamentary Golf Group heard from the Ladies European Tour (LET) in Parliament.
Peers and MPs were joined by associate members, as representatives from the LET made a presentation to a packed meeting of the Group.
The presentation was made by LET Chair, Mark Lichtenhein, and Director and professional Trish Johnson, who holds 19 LET titles. It focused on the LET’s efforts to help promote and develop golf for women and girls.
Speaking after the meeting, Group Co-Chair and Member of Parliament for North Warwickshire, Craig Tracey MP, said: “Members of the Group were delighted to hear from the Ladies European Tour. It was great to hear about the operations of the tour in more detail, and the work it does to promote golf for women and girls. I look forward to working with the tour in the future, especially with the return of The Solheim Cup to the UK in 2019.”
Fellow LET Director Trish Johnson said: “It was a great privilege to meet with MPs and Peers in Parliament. This is an exciting time for women’s sport in general, and I am confident that the Ladies European Tour will be able to harness opportunities to build the profile of the women’s game moving forward.''
