Aldwickbury Park, one of ten BGL Golf venues, has announced that Emma Clifford has been appointed new general manager of the Harpenden-based leisure destination. Clifford joins Aldwickbury Park from her previous role at West Essex Golf Club, where she was secretary manager for almost five years.
After turning professional in 1992, Clifford spent nine years competing on the Ladies European Tour before going on to become a fully qualified PGA professional in 2003. During her tenure at West Essex, the club secured its GolfMark status and became a ‘Get Into Golf’ centre, with Clifford’s efforts subsequently recognised when she was named the Golf Club Managers’ Association’s Manager of the Year for 2014.
She is now the third female general manager of a BGL Golf venue, signalling the group’s continued commitment to providing equal opportunities for females within the golf industry. Commenting Clifford said, “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.”
