The Middlesex Ladies County Golf Association
We aim to provide social, stimulating and competitive golf in Middlesex for amateur players of all ages and all abilities.
We give junior girls an introduction to the game through a structured development programme and encourage talented golfers to reach their full potential.
Our competition schedule aims to meet the needs of all members whilst at the same time retaining the ultimate goal of enjoyment of the game.
We welcome news from all clubs within the county, and also feedback on this website. Please contact Collette Te, Website Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Middlesex Ladies County Golf Association is pleased to welcome all enquiries from affiliated Middlesex Clubs.
County Captain & Vice Captain
I was born and brought up in Somerset, living opposite a golf course. However, as I was from a non-golfing family I never set foot on it. I moved to London in 1964 to train as a nurse at St Thomas’ Hospital and have lived here since then, apart from a short time in Cornwall while training as a Midwife.
I worked in the Citizens’ Advice Bureau while my children were small, before moving into telephone helpline management when I returned to work full time. We provided Employee Assistance Programmes in 10 languages across Europe and I also sat on the Board of Directors in America for the Employee Assistance Professionals Association.
I took up playing golf rather reluctantly but as I am married to a keen golfer in the end it became “if you can’t beat them you have to join them”. It was one of my better decisions and I have been a member at Highgate Golf Club for 42 years where I was Lady Captain in 2012/13.
I became involved in Middlesex Golf the following year when I was asked to organise the County Championship. Since then I have become interested in all aspects of Middlesex Golf and look forward to my two years as County Captain.
I was born in Lincolnshire and educated in Yorkshire, swapping the lovely countryside for London in the Swinging Sixties, training as a physiotherapist at Guy’s Hospital.
It is a decision I have never regretted. I have loved my work and still do. The seventies saw the boom in private medicine and I quickly joined the revolution, managing physiotherapy services at The Princess Grace Hospital, The London Clinic, the London Spine Clinic and the Clementine Churchill Hospital (not all at the same time!). I even found time to equip and commission the physiotherapy department at the As Salaam Hospital in Cairo.
I am a founder member of the Sports Massage Association and sat on the Board of Directors for six years.
I have been a member at Rusper Golf Club in Surrey and Chalgrave Manor in Bedfordshire. I am currently a member at Mill Hill Golf Club, where I was Ladies’ Captain in 2012/13.
Whilst at Rusper, I had the privilege of acting as a volunteer guide for five years to golfers from Blind Veterans UK. This taught me that if you don’t need to lift your head to watch your ball, you can play very nicely…..or alternatively blame your guide, particularly when you miss a putt!
As for my hobbies, it doesn’t need me to tell you that if it involves animals, I love it. I have six cats and a dog, who cost a small fortune but are worth every penny. I also love to walk, travel, cook, potter in the garden and go somewhere hot once a year to enjoy the company of friends, a book and a bottle of wine beside the sea. When not doing that, I enjoy the company of friends and wine at home! “Oh, and I play golf!”
I am looking forward to my two years as your vice captain and hope that Stephanie and I will carry on the great work of our predecessors in promoting MLCGA both within the county and further afield.
