CHESTER Golf Club’s new captain John Chisholm managed to beat the nerves to drill a great drive down the first fairway at his Drive-In.
The 12-handicapper, who hails from the North East, was watched by a large gathering of friends, family and members.
John, who joined the club in 1998, has been married to his wife Anne for more than 40 years and has two daughters and one two-year-old granddaughter with another granddaughter on the way and due in the world on 17 June – just three days before Captain’s Day!
His prime career focused on marketing financial services – heading up Barclaycard’s marketing department in Northampton in the 1980s. He is now semi-retired and runs a small CV writing business.
John has teamed up with lady captain Nuala Kelly to choose the Haematology Oncology Suite at the Countess of Chester Hospital as their chosen charity for the year.
