Saddleworth Golf Club’s new Captain achieves his golfing highlight
SADDLEWORTH Golf Club’s new Captain Steve Asquith has been a member of his beloved club for the best part of 40 years, since being a young junior, and becoming Captain of Saddleworth is undoubtedly the highlight of his long golfing life.
Steve, whose best handicap was three, now five, said: “Our course, nestling in the Saddleworth hills has a funny effect on folk.
“It’s challenging layout and small greens get inside you and the views can overwhelm even the most seasoned of players.
“It is never the same twice and it offers a real test to golfers of all standards and the beautiful clubhouse affords a warm and welcoming place to eat, drink and analyse your round.
“More than this our club offers a welcome that is second to none with the friendly staff and members making every single visit a joy. There is no club that I would rather be Captain of!
“My favourite hole at the club is the third. It offers a true challenge and is always a good hole to walk off with a par. My other favourite course is Nefyn.
“I play two or three times a week and enjoy all other sports. I support Liverpool FC and my chosen charity to support is Motor Neurone Disease.
“My chosen players to join me in a four-ball would be my Dad, my late Uncle, who died from Motor Neurone Disease and my brother- because none of them are golfers and I wish they were!”
