I am delighted to announce that Sarah Deacon, from Basingstoke Golf Club, has agreed to be our next Vice Captain.
Sarah started playing golf at the age of 11, at Andover GC, encouraged by both her parents, who played regularly. A move to Tidworth GC a few years later resulted in Sarah representing Wiltshire at 2nd team level, and then 1st team after winning the Wiltshire County Championship in 1986.
After having time away from golf to raise a family Sarah returned to golf playing at Andover and became Lady Captain there in 2007. In 2009 Sarah moved to Basingstoke GC and was Lady Captain there in 2013.
She has played second team golf for Hampshire and also enjoyed playing in Hampshire senior matches, as well as matches for her home club.
Sarah is currently Secretary of the Association of Hampshire Lady Captains.
Sarah enjoys all aspects of golf and is really looking forward to the challenge ahead and supporting Jill England during her Captaincy.
Sarah will begin her role at our AGM in December.
