Hi my name is Helen Smith and I am Ashton & Lea's Lady Captain for 2019.
I'm married to Paul Smith who has been a member for over 25 years and I joined the club and ladies section in 2011. I was late getting into golf, only starting playing when the kids had finally left home and I suddenly had free time! I never thought that golf would be something that would interest me but after constantly beating Paul on the Nintendo Wii golf game (don't tell him I told you that!) I thought this is easy I'll give the real thing a go!
I soon found out the real thing is not that easy though I have had some successes winning the ladies singles, ladies doubles with my partner Jane Cooper as well as getting Paul's name on a board comp finally!!!!!! Truth in the saying 'behind every great man there is a greater woman'
I'm looking forward to a great year working with my partner in crime representing the men Captain Bernard Hargreaves.........
