Top golf trio enjoying the Ellesmere experience
A VERY experienced and talented golfing trio are enjoying their new life at Ellesmere Golf Club.
PGA professional Scott Currie, his wife Kath and eldest son Ben made the move to Ellesmere a few months ago and are delighted with their move.
Scott said: “My roles to date in professional golf included working with Robert Ling at Withington as an assistant pro for eight years then on to Marriott Worsley Park with David Screeton for two years as his assistant.
I was then at Boysnope Park GC as Head Professional as a busy club pro and running the teaching academy role for 20 years.
This was followed by two years working for American Golf at Trafford Centre and I am now looking for a coaching role at a local club.
The Ellesmere committee and members have been so welcoming to Kath that it sometimes feels as if she was been here for years and nothing is too much trouble.
Kath is looking forward to her time ahead at Ellesmere Golf Club and will use her experience of being a golf club steward of 20 Years so far (previously of Withington GC) to enhance the customer experience to members and guests alike.
Her main role is to provide the best-in-class bar service to members and guests alike.
She has joined and inherited a great team of bar staff and is looking forward to working with the team and helping them to grow in their roles at the club.”
Kath added: “It's a great club in which the members really support anything going on. The clubhouse is in for a redecoration plan in the near future which will include a new bar area. The club couldn't wait for lockdown and restrictions to ease because the diary is busy attracting lots of outside engagements.
There is a definite sense of ‘Golf Club on the up at Ellesmere!’ I'm so glad to be on board and part of their journey forwards and enjoying every minute of it.”
Ben is in his last year at Altrincham College studying sports.
Ben, playing off a scratch handicap, has enjoyed being selected for Cheshire County at all age groups starting at the age of 12 when he was selected for the Under 14's Squad.
He got selected twice last season for the Men's squad in which he enjoyed some success at the much tougher level of Golf.
Ben has a busy year ahead in 2022 with Cheshire in which he feels very privileged to have been given the task of captaining the Boys squad.
He also has a busy year Individually playing in The Boys Fairhaven Trophy, The English under 18s, The English under 25s, The Carris Trophy at Silloth on Solway, and lots more Boys Opens to keep the momentum going.
Ben is a member of Ellesmere GC with his home club now Wilmslow where he has been for a number of years now.
