Brewerton to play in Ladies Golf Classic

Ready to play: Brewerton

Becky Brewerton, the European Ladies Tour champion, has agreed to be a participant in next month’s inaugural Ladies Golf Classic hosted by local charity Community Driven Development.

The one-day tournament is set for Port Royal Golf Club for Friday, October 30 and will feature eighteen teams, with Brewerton playing one hole with each of the teams as the fifth member.

“We are delighted that Becky has agreed to participate in our first Ladies Golf Classic in October. The event is slated to be a major fundraiser for the charity and Becky will certainly be a big draw,” Juan Prado, the CDD Board chairman, said.

“We believe this may be the first time a charity has focused on attracting ladies only to a golfing event, which makes it unique and even more interesting.”

A Welsh national, Brewerton turned professional in 2003 after a successful amateur career, which culminated in her winning the European Ladies’ Amateur Championship in 2002. In the same year she was also named The Daily Telegraph’s player of the year.

Brewerton’s maiden professional victory was a three stroke win at the 2007 Ladies’ English Open.

This, plus four other top ten finishes, earned her a place on the 2007 European Solheim Cup Team, the first Welsh golfer to make the team.

The same year Brewerton won the Towergate Professional Player of the Year. Brewerton’s second LET victory was at the 2009 Spanish Ladies’ Open and in December 2010 she earned a place on the 2011 LPGA tour.

Brewerton is eagerly looking forward to her first visit to Bermuda which will be for a good cause.

“I am thrilled to be coming to Bermuda to support CDD,” she said. “I have always wanted to visit the Island and it is an added plus that in doing so I will be able to support this important women’s charity.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring or participating in the first CDD Ladies Golf Classic, or the Becky Brewerton Clinic, is urged to contact CDD Director of Fund Development at cddbermuda@gmail.com

CDD is a local charity focused on empowering women to break their dependency on financial assistance through re-education and ultimately full-time employment. The new charity has already helped dozens of Bermudian women retool and upgrade their skills to make them “work ready”.
