CLECKHEATON & District Golf Club is holding a PGA event on Monday, June 8, with a former Ryder Cup star and a few more famous names set to play.

Paul Broadhurst, who played in the 1991 European Ryder Cup side that narrowly lost to the USA at Kiawah Island, will be there, as will current European Tour players David Horsey and John Parry.

Female pro stars Carly Booth and Amy Boulden will also be teeing off.

Cleckheaton's vice captain, Paul Arthurs, explained: "It's a professional PGA event and we'll be conducting live scoring and video.

"There will be a few amateurs but it will mainly be PGA professionals and some club pros. There'll be pros from all over the country but only a select few can play.

"As a club, under coronavirus guidelines, we're not allowing spectators. Whether we'll be allowed to open it up for our members to watch, we'll see.

"We've been given guidelines to follow (to protect the players), which we're doing anyway at the golf club at the moment."

Discussing the stellar line-up, Arthurs said: "We've got some significant pro golfers partaking in it.

"Paul Broadhurst played in the Ryder Cup and now he's on the European Senior Tour.

"David Horsey and John Parry are on the European Tour. David's done some on course commentary for the European Tour too, but I'm sure he still plays on the circuit as well.

"John is a good player too but someone who's maybe had a bit of an up and down career."

That trio will fancy their chances of success at next month's tournament, but so will a couple of star female names.

Arthurs said: "Carly Booth and Amy Boulden are both professionals on the Ladies European Tour.

"Amy is a talented Welsh player, while Carly is Scottish.

"I'm not certain, but I believe Carly was the youngest female (Scot) to turn pro, at 17.

"She's a really good player."
