Helana Price – Ladies Captain 2022/23

BACKGROUND

Born in Dundee and educated in Kirkcaldy, Scotland – Gordon Brown [former Prime Minister] was educated in Kirkcaldy, Helena would like to know is this a claim to fame? Moving to England in 1961, she denies seeing the light, and married in 1964. Helena is the proud mother of 2 girls and one son + 9 grandchildren + 8 great-grandchildren!

LIFELONG INTERESTS

All sports, reading and current affairs along with sewing when time permits and latterly gardening. Helena played tennis until getting into golf joining Lilleshall in 1989 – quickly hooked.

GOLF

Obviously Group lessons with Nigel Bramhall [LHGC Professional when Helena joined] paid dividends – Helena’s lowest handicap being 13 and a lowest round playing to 9 [a Hole in One at Druid’s Heath in 1994] + playing in Ladies’ County Handicap league and Ladies County Scratch league – opponents BEWARE!

With that sort of playing record it was inevitable that Helena would be drawn into to serving the Club – Ladies’Committee [House and then Competitions], 2003/4 Ladies’ Captain, Ladies’ President 2017 and 2018 and honoured to be Ladies’ Captain for 2022/3.

ASPIRATIONS

She will promote “tolerance of each other and looking forwards not backwards”. “Golfing and the Golf Club should be a happy place for ALL to enjoy”
