Kirsty’s the pride of Stamford

Kirsty GlaisterCHESHIRE’S Kirsty Glaister has been recognised as the Fuller’s London Pride Steward of the Year for England Golf’s North region.

Kirsty, from Stamford Golf Club,  received her trophy at the annual presentation lunch at The Counting House in London, when the national and regional winners were celebrated.The competition to find and recognise England’s top golf club stewards was in its ninth year and attracted hundreds of votes for the nominated stewards.

Kirsty said: “It was a real surprise to win this! We’re a small team and everyone pulls together. If anyone needs a hand, whether it’s us or the pro or the greenstaff, we all jump in together. Stamford is such a friendly club, everyone comments on it.”

Kirsty joined the club  five years ago and works alongside her partner, Dane Ludlow, who has the catering franchise. She has also taken on some of the club’s administration. Her efforts have helped Stamford buck the trend with rising membership, increasing visitor revenue and more social income.

Kirsty will take on any challenge at the club and helped, hands-on, with the renovation of the main function room. She and Dane have also overhauled the kitchen and invested in new equipment.

They have started Sunday carveries, which are popular with members and local residents, and she organises social events ranging from weddings to evening functions for the members.

Kirsty and the other winners all received their trophies from England Golf Interim Chief Executive, Craig Wagstaff, and from Earl Baker, Fuller’s sales manager.
