WILMSLOW Golf Club captain Alan Clarke has been a member of his club for 30 enjoyable years and he is relishing his new role.

His best handicap was 14, now 23, he plays twice a week on average and his favourite hole at the club is the 14th which has a great view.

His other favourite course among numerous he has played at across the world is Long Cove on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, USA.

Alan said: “We have hosted many top competitions at Wilmslow over the years and it was very disappointing to see the postponement of the Wilmslow Foursome, which had a stellar field but I am sure that it can grow and become a serious recognised event.

“My hobbies other than golf are horse racing and supporting Tottenham Hotspur and my own personal golfing highlight is having four ‘Twos’ in one round at my club in London.

“My chosen charity for my captain’s year is the Wythenshawe Hospital Thoracic Unit.

“My dream four-ball to play in would be with Tiger Woods, the world’s greatest golfer. Peter Alliss who I imagine would be great company and Donald Trump who would enable us to get on any course in the world!”
