The team of Lady Captain (Cath Halstead), Agnes Crohill, Judy Lovett, Debbie Wood, Gill Fell, Dorothy Spencer & Jill Taylor competed for the Handicap shield against fifteen other clubs, they were successful in winning this.

During the 2011 season the Bentham ladies Bronze team played in the Three Counties Bronze League and were successful in their division in qualifying to go to the semi final winning all but one of their league matches.

The team consisted of Gill Fell, Jill Taylor, Dorothy Spencer, Sally Carter and Carole Capstick. Lorraine Brindle & Anita Brown also played in the league matches.

The end of the season saw the team play in the Three Counties Inter-club competition at Barrow Golf Club, on a damp windy day, we played against fourteen other clubs. Bentham were yet again successful, with Ulverston second
