I was working at East Brighton Golf Club for six years. I’d been a member there myself since I was 10 years old. Whilst I was working there, I completed an online PGA degree at the University of Birmingham.
My dad has always been very good at golf. I remember one weekend when I was much younger, he was about to leave to go and play, so I asked if I could come along. I’ve been playing golf every Saturday since, with my dad teaching me!
I enjoy being good at golf, particularly as a female in what has traditionally been a male-dominated game. I remember my first golf competition, I was 11 years old and I was up against an 18-year-old man! Playing golf has also allowed me to travel and meet new people. I’ve met some of my best friends through playing golf.
Yes, Montgomerie Maxx Royal is a great golf course located in Turkey. It was nice to play golf in the sun, but as it got to 36 degrees during the day we had to wake at 6.30am to play before it got too hot!
My previous work was at a golf members’ club so I am looking forward to working at The Grove where it is completely different. I’m also excited to work alongside experienced professionals like Tom Minshull, who have played and worked at some of the most prestigious courses around the world. This will be a great opportunity for me to learn from the best.
I was Sussex Junior Captain at one point which was cool and then I was a member of the Sussex Ladies’ First Team for a few years. But what I am most proud of so far is having won the Girls’ South Region English Championship in 2015.
Justin Rose! He followed me back on Instagram at the end of last year which was very exciting.
Enjoy yourself and don’t overthink the technique. Let the club do the work. Try not to hit the ball too hard – it’s not about how far, it’s about trying to deliver quality shots consistently.

As the reinvention of The Glasshouse nears completion, we had a chance to interview Leonie Bos, who created the fabulous illustration of the new conservatory extension! Read her stories about times such as living in a cold squat in Amsterdam, dressing her new-born baby in a ski suit! Thankfully, today’s a different story and we wish her so much success in her work.
Tiger Woods’ historic win at The Masters on Sunday brought back wonderful memories of when The Grove was fortunate enough to have him compete on our championship golf course and, like at Augusta, he finished a champion.
The re-creation of The Glasshouse is nearly complete – we can almost hear the drum roll! We caught up with the interior designer behind it all, Martin Hulbert, who gave us some fascinating insights into how his vision for The Glasshouse came together.
