Girls into golf- The legacy of Joyce Wethered

This part of the project is intended to encourage more girls into golf and to shine a light on the last remaining family member who lived at Knightshayes: Joyce Wethered.

Joyce was a world championship golfer and a talented pioneer in women’s golf, as well as a respected gardener. 

We will invite girls aged 14-16 who already play golf as well as those who have never tried it before to participate in the game of golf in order to improve their confidence and willingness to try new things. This physical experience will inform and inspire an arts based project where participating girls will make golfing trophies depicting women playing golf.

This is a great opportunity for participants to learn a new skill, gain knowledge about the history of women in sport, golfing and Tiverton’s unsung feminist hero.
