CLEVEDON Golf Club has announced the appointment of Louise Freeman as their new general manager.

Louise, who will be joining in early May, will be replacing Jim Cunning, who is retiring after 15 years service.

Chairman David Fife said: “We are very sorry to lose Jim, who has done so much for the club over the years, and wish him a very happy retirement. He has done a fantastic job for us, and leaves the club in a very good position.

We are confident that Louise will provide the energy and leadership to take us on to the next stage of our development.”

Louise has spent the last 12 years as manager of the Knott End Golf Club in Lancashire, and has a wealth of qualifications and experience in the golf, leisure and hospitality industries.

Amongst her hobbies and interests she lists running, mountain biking and travel, and says she has a passion for fine dining.
