What is your role at Golf At Goodwood?

"I am a Golf Receptionist on both The Park and Downs Course. This involves everything from speaking to members over the phone and face-to-face to book tee times and to answer any questions they may have. I am here to help and am really looking forward to getting to know our members throughout the summer."

What do you most enjoy about your role?

"I really love the customer interaction and meeting the lovely members on a day to day basis. I also work within a great team, where everyone’s just as mad as each other!  We are so lucky to have two amazing golf courses plus exceptional facilities if only I knew how to play golf to make the most of them! You never know, maybe I’ll venture down to The Academy one day to have a go…."

What is your Fantasy Fourball?

"Now that is a tough one. It would have to include Bradley Cooper, Margot Robbie and Freddie Flintoff." 

What is your best-golfing achievement?

"A hole in one, at Hunston's pitch and putt! It was certainly a one-off and a lot of luck was involved!"

Something that our Members wouldn’t know about you

"I used to play badminton at county level which I am very proud of. If anyone ever fancies a game, I am always happy to play." 

What’s your favourite thing about working at Goodwood?

"The team spirit that all Goodwood employees have is amazing which makes coming to working very enjoyable. Everyone is so helpful and proud to work for such a unique estate – and of course the beautiful scenery!" 

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

"For some reason, when I was growing up, I really wanted to be a vet. One of my favourite TV shows was Wild at Heart.  I found it inspiring, so I guess it came from there!"
