On behalf of the Ladies Committee, it is my pleasure to offer you a very warm welcome to Alderley Edge Golf Club. Our club is well known for its excellent golf course’s unique features and friendly members. Having come from a family of passionate golfers, joining the club in 2017 enabled me to rekindle my enthusiasm for golf.
I am very fortunate to have the support of a strong committee, which includes Lady President Mary O’Toole and Lady Vice Captain Fiona Anderson, who bring a wealth of experience to the Ladies Section.
Coming out of the restrictions has provided the Ladies Section with an opportunity to review historical practices and consider new ideas so that the ladies section can continue to grow. This is particularly important as we seek to ensure that our club is inclusive for all ladies regardless of their ability.
2022 will see the introduction of new ideas in order to bring in greater challenge for our more able golfers and further develop the team spirit and competitiveness that already exists at Alderley Edge Golf Club.
The new initiatives for 2022 include:
- A Ladies Club Championship being played over 36 holes on Thursday 21st July
- Two divisions for the medals; and
- Team captains for matches.
My chosen charity for this year is the Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes. They are run entirely by volunteers and courier urgent medical items including blood, x -rays, transplant organs, human donor milk across the UK. Our main event in support of this important charity will be a 54 hole golf competition on Friday 24th June.
In closing, I would like to wish all visitors and members of Alderley Edge Golf Club an enjoyable year of golf and I look forward to seeing you all out on our stunning fairways.
Lady Captain 2022
