Cheshire are hoping for success in the England Golf Awards Young Ambassador Section at the ceremony in March at the Royal Lancaster London.
Nominated in the final four is Louise McLoughlin of Bromborough GC along with Ella Baker (Warley Woods GC, Jessica Pilgim (Stoke Park) and Georgina Wrixon (Ashley Wood GC, Dorset)
Louise (pictured) fell in love with golf when she was 11 and now aged 18, she’s a single figure handicapper, has played for Cheshire since she was 14, and uses her infectious enthusiasm to share her pleasure in the game. She’s just been junior captain at her club, Bromborough, and she volunteers to help with junior coaching and at lessons for women beginners.
Louise has been a Girls Golf Rocks Ambassador for two years, helping at tasters and other events at seven different venues. She also visited local schools to encourage girls to take part.
Cheshire is one of England Golf’s priority junior counties, aiming to grow the game, and Louise provides a youthful perspective and gives her ideas on ways for clubs and the county to attract new players.
“She’s always got a smile and a cheery word of encouragement,” said Bromborough 2018 ladies’ captain Jill Holmes. “Louise is a happy, charismatic girl who deserves to do well by her positive mental attitude and endless enthusiasm.”
England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink said: “The judges were swept away by these fantastic young people who really love golf and share their pleasure with such enthusiasm. It’s hugely encouraging to know that the future of the game is in the hands of players like these.”
