The first lady of British golf took office in Belfast last night.
They came from Nigeria and other far-away places to salute the newly-elected chairman of the Ladies' Golf Union, Brigid McCaw, a pillar of the famous Royal Co Down club.
It was the first time in the Union's 100-year history that Ulster had hosted an agm, and among those sharing a centre-stage role were architect's wife, Ann Wallace, president of the ILGU; Curtis Cup captain Mary McKenna, and Sandra McWilliams, the chairman of the Northern District.
