PRESIDENTS MESSAGE

STEVE KELLETT

I often wonder what avenues my life would have followed had I not discovered golf some 55+ years ago. Very different I’m sure and not for the better I guarantee. It has been a huge part of my life. My start in golf had humble beginnings at a small 9 hole course close to home. But I was lucky, what it lacked in holes it made up for in friendliness, the warmth of welcome and the characters who played there.

As a Junior without support, (my Mother and Father didn’t play at that time) and not knowing anyone at the club, it wasn’t without its obstacles. However golf had gripped me and along with a stubborn attitude I kept at it. It’s due to these early experiences that I strongly support England Golf’s ambitious plans to grow the game. It’s a game to be enjoyed and experienced by everyone.

To that end I shall be taking every opportunity and doing all I can as Lincolnshire President to assist both England Golf and Lincolnshire County Golf achieve their aims. And, I would encourage all of you to make yourselves familiar with these blueprints and programmes and give something back to golf, whether this is supporting the Juniors at your club through your time or a donation or sitting on the club committee and playing a much bigger part. I guarantee whatever you put in to this wonderful game you’ll get far more back. Try it.

Finally, please, if you do see me on my travels introduce yourself and let’s have a golf chat. I’m happy to listen and discuss any topic.

Have a great golfing season,

Steve.

England Golf Centenary Dinner & Awards 2024 - Freya Allen named Young Volunteer of the Year

12-year-old Freya Allen won the England Golf Young Volunteer of the Year award for 2024 at Tuesday’s England Golf Centenary Dinner & Awards at The Midland Manchester Hotel.

The Elsham Golf Club youngster has helped weekly with junior coaching at her club and Girls Golf Rocks as a Young Helper.

As a young golfer starting golf through Girls Golf Rocks in 2019, she was keen to be an ambassador and give back to younger golfers, and she went on to support the club’s two Girls Golf Rocks taster sessions alongside supporting the Girls Golf Rocks coaching blocks.

Freya supports around four hours of junior coaching and on-course activities weekly – in which she will proactively take registers, has come out of her comfort zone to deliver demonstrations, encourages and supports the juniors, and helps to pack away and tidy up.

She also supported with taking videos and photos during a Girls Golf Rocks session which was used to help promote the activity.

She holds excellent authority, as well as fantastic communication skills whilst demonstrating amazing leadership and professionalism.
After picking up her award, she said: “It means everything to me and I’m so proud of myself. It’s a great achievement – I don’t even know how to explain it!
“What I feel like I’ve learned, is that I can lead. The most rewarding thing has been seeing the kids having a good time and coming back every week. I enjoy doing warm-ups with them but I’ve seen some questionable star-jumps!
“I just want to get more people into the game. I think we need to get more girls into golf and we need to get golf into more schools.”
Freya’s message for anyone looking to pick up a club for the first time was: “Do it! Just go for it! I love it because it’s all about making friends and having a good time.”
