The winner of last year’s Manager of the Year competition, Emma Clifford, has been named the new manager of Aldwickbury Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire.

Emma, who was secretary manager at West Essex Golf Club for almost five years, previously spent nine years competing on the Ladies European Tour before going on to become a fully qualified PGA professional in 2003.

Emma won the Golf Club Managers’ Association’s ‘Manager of the Year’ award following a successful time at West Essex, which included a significant rise in the club’s members, the club securing its GolfMark status and it becoming a ‘Get Into Golf’ centre.

Emma is now the third female general manager of a BGL Golf venue. A spokesman said: “This signals the group’s continued commitment to providing equal opportunities for females within the golf industry.”

Aldwickbury Park Golf Club has recently invested more than £750,000 in a redevelopment of its function room, doubling its capacity to accommodate more than 200 guests. The investment also saw a refurbishment of the club’s lounge bar.

“I’m excited about the challenge of this new role at Aldwickbury, and look forward to ensuring that we continue to raise the bar in terms of the quality and service we provide to both our members and visitors,” said Emma.

“From the minute I first arrived, I was very impressed with the facility. The recent investment has borne fruit, so it’s exciting to be representing one of the finest function facilities in the county,” she continued.

Nestled among picturesque parkland on the outskirts of Harpenden, Aldwickbury Park continues to pride itself on being regarded as one of the most welcoming clubs in Hertfordshire, boasting two courses and a thriving membership. Former Ryder Cup player and BBC commentator Ken Brown designed its Park Course.
