I started playing golf when I was  58. I enjoyed Gliding for many years and passed my silver badge but I felt, as I was getting older, I needed something a little bit more down to earth. My friend introduced me to golf and I was hooked. Best thing I ever did. I should have started earlier but it’s never too late to start! As enjoyable as golf is, it can also be very frustrating.

But I love the challenge, the companionship and most of all having something to get up for in the morning. And even if you are having a bad day, you only need one good shot to bring a smile to your face. Being Captain this year at West Essex golf Club it really keeps me on my toes and I love it

Everybody should play golf. It brings out the best (and very occasionally the worst) in you :)
