IS one of Britain’s next female golfing stars being nurtured at Lymm Golf Club?

Looking at the things Freya Jackson has already achieved in the sport, that may not appear so bold a prediction.

After all, she has twice competed at the world-famous St Andrews course in Scotland as well as in Europe and closer to home, she has broken the Lymm course record on two occasions.

All of this has come having only joined the club by chance in 2017 aged 11 after watching twin brother Jonas take golf lessons at neighbouring High Legh Golf Club.

In the coming year, Lymm High School pupil Freya will pit her wits against players from around the world at a “Champion of Champions” event in Ireland after winning a two-day competition organised by the European Junior Golf Tour at Guildford’s Silvermere Golf Club.

That was part of a summer where she missed out on qualification for the Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play but just one shot and notched her second Lymm GC course record with a gross round of 71 while playing in the club’s Ladies Medal.

Upon hitting Lymm’s highest ever Stableford score of 54 in her first ever competition, it soon became clear her handicap of 29 would be dropping quickly and it now stands at 3.6.

Making history quickly became a habit for Freya as she formed part of the first ever all-girls junior team to win the Cheshire county title in 2018.

That earned them a spot in the England Golf national final – the only all-girls team to do so – where they finished fourth in a field of more than 80 teams.

Having worked hard on her game in the final months of 2020, this young star will be hoping to shine even brighter when competitions begin again.
