NEW lady captain Sue Freeman hails the friendliness of Alderley Edge Golf Club as she looks ahead to enjoying her seventh season of golf in her new role with plenty of action when sport resumes fully from the coronavirus pandemic.

She likes that there are lots of opportunities for members who have full or limited time on their hands.

Sue said: “The Alderley Edge Golf Club ladies section is very active with social and competitive golf and we have teams in the East Cheshire Inter Club Shield and 9-Hole league.

“Friendly inter-club competitions are also organised throughout the year giving our members an opportunity to play at several local clubs while improving their match-play skills.

“For ladies who wish to improve their game we have an indoor technology swing room and our professional Charles Le Sueur offers lessons in the swing room and on the course.

“There are a range of membership offers for all golfing abilities and these include The Introductory for new and returning golf players, the Flexible membership for golfers with limited time and Full Playing Membership and whatever your golfing ability you will receive a friendly welcome from members and staff at the club.”

For Sue, she is able fit her hobbies in as well as playing golf.

“My own handicap is 31, one more than my best and I will be looking to play three or four times a week as well as enjoying my other hobbies of tennis, bridge and reading and enjoying the good company of all of my friends on the course,” she said.

Like most golfers, Sue has a favourite part of the course.

“My favourite hole at my club is the seventh which has great views across the course at any time in the year,” she said.

She has won a club competition in the past and will be raising money for charity as part of her year in office.

“My own golfing highlight was to win the par competition in 2018 and my chosen charity is Dementia UK,” she said.
