SUPERMODEL Jodie Kidd will be swapping the fashion runway for the fairway at Brocket Hall Golf Club, after becoming an ambassador for ladies’ golf.
A self-confessed golf nut, Ms Kidd will be at the forefront of the future development of ladies and junior girls’ golf at the prestigious Hertfordshire course.
As part of her role, the 34-year-old will help promote and expand Brocket Hall’s growing female membership, which already includes rising England international Gabriella Cowley and professional Tara Dayer-Smith, a winner on the Jamega Tour this season.
Cowley, who plays off a +3.3 handicap, announced herself as a star of the future after qualifying for last month’s Ricoh Women’s British Open at the age of just 17.
While Dayer-Smith is forging a successful career for herself in golf after taking a 10-year break from the game and plans to combine playing with a future coaching role at Brocket Hall.
Jodie Kidd said: “I’ve loved playing golf ever since I first tried it after my father bought me a lesson as a Christmas present as a child, and there are few grander or more beautiful places to play at than Brocket Hall.
“It is a stunning location and the club has everything that a golfer could want with some outstanding facilities.
“It’s a great honour to have been asked to join the club’s ambassador programme and promote it to a wider female audience.”
David Griffin, club manager at Brocket Hall Golf Club, said: “We are dedicated to the future growth of the women’s game at Brocket Hall and across Hertfordshire, both in increasing participation and in elite development.
“We are delighted to have Jodie on board to lead this and encourage women to enjoy their golf at Brocket Hall and develop all aspects of their game.”
