El Pomar Trustee Judy Bell Accepts Membership

Will Medlock, Golf Monthly

Marlene Stewart and Judy Bell have become the latest women to be made honorary members of The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. 

Bell, who captained the American Curtis Cup team in 1986 and 1988, said: “The Royal and Ancient Golf Club enjoys such a special place at the heart of golf and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

“Golf has been very good to me over the years and this is a wonderful distinction to receive.”

One of Bell’s claims to fame was shooting a 67 at the US Women’s Open in 1964, the then lowest round recorded.

Gavin Caldwell, Captain of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, said: “Both Marlene and Judy have made substantial contributions to golf through their outstanding achievements as players and their tireless work in supporting the development of the sport.”
