My name is Julie Ricketts and I would like to offer you a warm welcome to Alderley Edge Golf Club. It is a great honour to be Lady Captain for 2019. I am looking forward to my year with great excitement and enthusiasm.
Alderley is a picturesque, undulating and challenging nine hole course and is suited to golfers of all abilities. It is a warm and friendly club and any new members would be made very welcome at social events and on the course.
We have a wide range of competitions open to the ladies throughout the year. Tuesday is ladies’ competition day, when we enjoy a mixture of Medal Competitions, Stablefords and fun events. Thursday is ladies’ roll up, which is always very popular and well attended.
Bridge is becoming very popular with both the men and lady members who play regular social bridge throughout the year.
We have an excellent professional in Charles Le Sueur who can offer lessons in the indoor swing room with the latest state of the art technology.
We have ladies of all abilities and have events and competitions to suit everyone. We have nine hole and friendly competitions. We also have Shield and Business Ladies Matches which compete in the local Cheshire league. A weekend away and an Exchange Day with another local club is also included in the ladies’ diary.
I have an excellent team on the ladies’ Golf Committee including Lady President, Marion Hall and Lady Vice Captain, Sue Freeman and look forward to working with them all. We will do the best to make the coming year a successful and enjoyable one.
My chosen charity this year is the MS Society which is a charity based in Macclesfield and serves the local area. This charity is very worthwhile and important to me and I am grateful and thank you in advance for your support.
