Jane ready for another busy year at Ringway

JANE Conroy (pictured) has been a loyal, busy and successful member of Ringway Golf Club for 21 years.

The next year looks to be even busier as she is delighted to take on the role of Lady Captain.

Jane, who trained as a nurse but gave up when she started a family and did voluntary work instead, said: “Having always played sport I love being in the fresh air, getting exercise and enjoying the company of my golfing playing partners.

“I have always found the members of Ringway Golf Club extremely friendly and supportive – particularly to the junior section where I have been an organiser for the last eight years and will continue to give it my full support.

“My best handicap was eight, now nine, and I will be looking to play twice on average per week (more in the summer) as well as pursuing my other hobbies of reading and meeting friends and supporting Sunderland FC.

“My favourite hole at Ringway is the 17th- -a dogleg down to the green and staying on the green is very satisfying (rare but I keep trying!)

“My own personal golfing highlight is winning the East Cheshire A team final at the 19th hole in 2018 at Davenport against Tytherington to put the club’s name on the trophy for the first time.

“The charities I will be supporting are the Manchester Beat Blood Cancer Together (Based at the MRI where my daughter was a patient for nearly six years) and the Northern Counties Kidney Research Fund based at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle where my son is treated.

“Finally the three people I would choose to play with in a four-ball are Keith Emerson – a brilliant keyboard player (who committed suicide when he felt that he could no longer play as well), Henrik Stenson for his humour and Jane Austen who I think had a sad life but was still able to write books to be enjoyed over and over.”
