Chris looks forward to a great year

THE Manchester and District Ladies Golf Association (MDLGA) was formed in 1902 and over the years has gone from strength to strength organising top competitions for over 90 clubs within a radius of 25 miles from Manchester Town Hall.

Each year they appoint a Lady President who has served on the MDLGA committee and Bramhall Golf Club’s Chris Kelly (pictured) is very proud to be this year’s President.

Chris said: "I joined Chorlton Golf Club as a beginner in 1993 and spent enjoyable years there before moving to Bramhall GC, which is in the area where I live.

"I have been a member of Bramhall for the past 18 years and had the pleasure of being Lady Captain in 2003.

"I joined the MDLGA committee in 2006 and served for three tears, learning to be a competitions organiser in my first year, running competitions in my second year and training a new committee member in my third year and in addition I helped and joined in with various other activities.

"At the start of my golf I met Jackie Foy playing in a competition at Davyhulme Park and it was Jackie who encouraged me to be part of MDLGA which I have thoroughly enjoyed and am now proud to be President of.

"The courses MDLGA offer for their competitions in the north and south of Manchester are first class and we are pleased to organise the competitions for fellow golfers to enjoy."
