Beth Whyman had words of wisdom for her golf group — “putting is from the neck up” and “train your husband to do the housework.”

Whyman is one of 48 women in the Indian Tree 18-Hole Ladies Golf Club that meets at the Indian Tree Gold Club in Arvada on Wednesday mornings. She is also the oldest member of the club, celebrating her 90th birthday the beginning of August.

“It doesn’t hurt a bit to be 90,” she said after finishing 18 holes with the other ladies. “Why don’t you all try it?”

The group celebrated Whyman and 10 women in their 80s — including Shirley Hanson who recently turned 89 — after their round of golf the morning of July 26. The group has been in existence for 47 years and club president Gayle Cleary said she wanted to celebrate the women who keep playing in their 80s and 90s.

“This group of ladies is truly amazing,” she said.
