Carue Green Golf Club has welcomed local golfing talent Caitlin Whitehead as a club member.
Whitehead, 15, who plays off a handicap of +1.1, joins a growing group of elite female players at the Kendal-based golf club, with 16-year-old Harriet Barker and 19-year-old scratch player, Ellie Broome, also calling the club their ‘home’.
Carus Green is also the home club for amateur-turned-professional, Adam Chapman, 22, who has been coached for a number of years by Carus Green PGA professional, Andrew Pickering, and won at the Hotelplanner.com PGA Europro Tour in October.
Whitehead, who started playing golf at the age of four and is a pupil at Kirkbie Kendal school, has her eye on a future scholarship in the United States and is well on the way to achieving her goal as an England Girls’ Squad player for 2017/18.
Already, she has represented England in U16 international matches against Spain, Switzerland and Scotland. She also represented Great Britain & Ireland in the Junior Vagliano.
In addition, Whitehead won the Northern Girls U14 Championship in both 2015 and 2016 and the U14 Scottish Championship in 2016.
“We are delighted to welcome Caitlin to Carus Green and look forward to working with her in progressing the next stage of her golfing career,” said Carus Green Golf Centre director Lee Edwards.
