Jenny looking forward to another great year

PRESTBURY Golf Club’s new Lady Captain Jenny Purves is looking forward to enjoying another great year at the club where the former teacher has been a member for 10 years.

Jenny said: "It is lovely to be part of a ladies section at the club who are very friendly and make new members very welcome.

"We get very good turnouts for our Tuesday competitions and there are also competitions available for them to play in on most weekends.

"Our practice and tuition facilities are extensive and our teaching professional Mark Pilling has an impressive record of taking ladies with minimal golf experience and turning them into competent golfers.

"At the other end of the ability range our teams enjoyed great success in 2017 winning three major trophies and will look to defend the MDLGA Bell Cup.

"Our course is one of the best in Cheshire and won plaudits in 2017 for being in superb condition and work is in hand to make it even better.

"My best handicap was 17 and it is now 23 and I anticipate that I will be playing about three times a week in the coming year.

"My favourite hole at Prestbury is the dog-leg par four eighth as it leads to the halfway house where on a cold day a warm drink awaits!

"My other favourite course is Rothesay, my home town course, which has the most spectacular views ever being on the Isle of Bute and in the Firth of Clyde..

"My hobbies, other than golf are walking, gardening and bridge and supporting Man United.

"I have chosen ‘Bloodwise’ as my Lady Captain’s Charity which is a Blood Cancer Charity aiming to stop people dying of blood cancer, make patients lives better and to stop blood cancer happening in the first place.

"My golfing highlight was to get a hole in one on the seventh hole at Prestbury and my chosen four-ball would be with my son, my husband and my brother.

"It would be great company, a BIT of rivalry and (hopefully) some good golf!"
