This woman has just become Royal Jersey’s first female golf professional in its 138 year history

Professional golfer Alex Mollin has made history by becoming Royal Jersey Golf Club’s first ever female PGA professional in its 138 year history.

The former Titleist Assistant of the Year has joined the club’s six strong team as a full time teaching professional.

Her appointment at such an historic and prestigious club signifies the transformation that golf is currently going through – not least because her own approach to coaching is based on making the sport fun and inclusive.

“As far I’m concerned it is a great opportunity to work at one of the most prestigious clubs on the island,” she said.

“I think people realise now that clubs have to be inclusive and offer opportunities for more women to get into the game.

“Women who play the game get so many benefits from it. I have started my own golf society, called the Tee-Birds, which is focused upon promoting the social benefits of the game. Golf has to change, and is changing, and part of that is having more female coaches.

“Royal Jersey places a big emphasis on fun and I think as coaches we have to encourage people to enjoy the game – that is a massive side of it.”

A spokesman for the club added: “Her success as a coach showcases the increasing opportunities for women in golf and the important role they have to play in the sport.

“Royal Jersey enjoys a strong reputation for coaching with a big emphasis on creating a fun environment allied to an impressive range of facilities including Flightscope and Trackman launch monitors for teaching and fitting as well as a K Vest and SAM Putt Lab.

“All this fits in with Mollin’s desire to continually improve as a coach, reflected in a recent visit to Scottsdale, Arizona to work with the renowned Vision 54 academy while she also visited legendary Butch Harmon last November to watch him at close quarters.”
