Carden Park Estate has announced Anne Dawson as its first ever female golf club president.

Dawson, who is local to Chester, originally joined the club as a founding member back in 1995, when she had only played a couple of games of golf. Since then, she has helped the club to go from strength to strength and, in 2000, she was appointed captain of the ladies’ team. 

Speaking after taking on the presidency, Dawson said: “Being elected as the first female club President is not only a huge personal honour for me, but it also speaks volumes for how strongly the club values diversity. Today, the game is far more inclusive. Carden Park always encourages and welcomes women to play golf on an equal footing with men.

Under her new presidency, Dawson will be responsible for supporting club members and managing the day-to-day activity of the club. Primarily, she will encourage members, men and women, to enjoy the game, play to their potential, while helping to steer the club’s leadership to greater fortunes in the future.

She added: “I feel very proud to have been elected by my fellow members to be the club’s President for the next three years. We have two sensational courses, an active and passionate membership and a wonderful team behind the scenes, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards. At the heart of it all is the phenomenal Carden spirit. I will work hard to safeguard that positive energy. Carden should be an escape, particularly as we navigate the intense challenges brought on by the pandemic.”

At the handover ceremony, Head PGA Professional David Llewllyn thanked Dawson for all her hard work over the years, adding that ‘she has truly earnt’ her role as president.
