The Men's Golf Section has flourished in recent years. Headed by the Chairman of the Handicaps and Competitions Committee Ron Irwin we have seen competition entries soar. Our events which are mainly played on Saturdays with mid week events during the summer months regularly attract in excess of 100 entries. Great prize funds are on offer during the wide ranging formats of events. The Professionals Shop monitor and control the bookings to ensure those who want to play, can!
Getting to know the 2020/21 Captain Paul Marsden............
- When did you start playing golf?
I started playing golf approximately 30 years ago and joined Kenwick Park as it was being constructed and have played here since we opened.
- What is your lowest ever Handicap? 12
In a sentence or two what are your hopes as a Captain?
I hope that all sections of the Golf Club continue to thrive and that Members and Visitors enjoy their experience at Kenwick
- What is your fondest memory of Kenwick Park?
During my time at Kenwick I have had many treasured memories and made some good friends. But without doubt my proudest moment was being invited to be your Captain.
- Outside of golf what is your most enjoyable hobby?
Outside golf my two main hobbies are distance running and supporting Liverpool FC but both can be frustrating as well as exhilarating like my golf.
- Which is your favourite hole at Kenwick?
My favourite hole at Kenwick is the 13th Hole a real risk and reward Par 5
- After Kenwick what is the best course you have played?
I have had the pleasure of playing many great golf courses but my favourite is TPC Sawgrass, a joy to play and of course its iconic 17th Hole is great fun.
- What is your favourite club in your golf bag?
My favourite club is my putter.
- What is your ‘go to’ order from Howard and Sammy in the clubhouse?
Luckily I am spoilt for choice but if a light salad is not available then my 'go to' order would be Chicken Goujons with Sweet Chilli dip.
- Which three famous golfers or celebrities would make up your dream golfing 4 ball?
My three playing partners would be Steven Gerrard, Jack Nicklaus and Justin Rose.
Like all Captains past and present Paul will need the support of the membership, the staff and his Vice Captain. We are pleased to announce that Paul Dewhurst will take up the Vice Captains roles from the start of November.
