Linda Walmsley, the inaugural Lady Captain at Worsley Park Golf Club, is delighted to welcome the Manchester Publicity Association (MPA), of which she is a long standing member, to the prestigious Manchester Hotel and Golf Club for its annual golf day on 29th June 2000.

Over 160 golfers will play in the event with an additional 100 guests attending in the evening.  Linda said, “I have no doubt that the MPA golfers will enjoy the course which is in terrific shape.  This year alone, over 300k has been invested in course improvements.”

Linda is a director at executive recruitment company Walton Churchill Search & Selection where she specialises in media and IT sectors.  She is a well-known face amongst the MPA membership having formerly worked as the Northern Advertisement Manager at The Guardian Media Group.

Linda has been an effective ambassador for the lady members at Worsley Park during her first year in office.  She commented:

“I was initially impressed by Worsley Park Golf Club because of its attitude towards lady golfers.  We are treated entirely equally, competitions are mixed with prizes for men and women, everyone can play at any time, in fact, the only separation is in the provision of dedicated changing facilities.  Despite only being in its second year, the club membership is full and we are delighted to have attracted a number of sporting celebrity members – most of whom are probably resting now before next season begins.”

Linda’s colleagues at Walton Churchill Search & Selection are supporting the MPA event by sponsoring a nearest pin competition at the forth hole.
