My name is Christian Lindley and I am married with 2 young daughters. I have lived in Alvanley and the surrounding area since 1976. I first joined Helsby golf club at the age of 14 when Ian Wright was Secretary and resident professional. I was fortunate enough to be part of one of the strongest junior sections in the history of the golf club and this in no small part was down to the guidance and influence of Mr Norman Littler.
My contribution to Helsby Golf Club over the years has consisted of being a member of various committees, being voted onto the Board of Directors and holding the position of Chairman since January 2020. My company was also the main sponsor of the Powered Wheelchair appeal golf day for a number of years and we have sponsored the 1st hole at Helsby for many years. In addition to this I helped support our Captain’s, Neil Johnson and Graham Poland by organising and coordinating their Captain’s charity golf day’s that raised nearly £20,000 for Claire House Hospice.
In brief, I am a huge fan and a loyal member of Helsby Golf Club and always will be. There have been many years where I have not played golf due to work and family commitments but still paid my subscriptions. Why is this? Because I remember how fortunate and lucky, I felt to be associated to Helsby Golf Club and I retain those same feelings 36 years later.
I am hugely honoured to have been asked to be Captain of Helsby Golf Club and I full intend to play lots of golf and attend many events with friends both new and old!
Captain Christian Lindley
