ELEXIS' STORY

Sadly, our beautiful daughter Elexis passed away on the 8th of August 2021.

 

Her golf Journey started in the spring of 2014 when she first picked up a Tri Golf club at an event hosted by the Golf Foundation. Elexis realised she could hit the ball well and we decided to invest in a set of second-hand junior golf clubs.

Elexis quickly picked up the game and was given her first official handicap at the age of 8 of 53 playing in golf competition at her first club the Leicestershire GC.

Elexis had group lessons and also lessons with PGA professional Zoe North, then Evie Carter, and to her present long game Anders  Mankert from the Leicester golf centre and her short game coach Alison Johns from Woodhall Spa GC.

we decided to set up a charity in Elexis name called the Elexis Brown Golf Foundation.

This charity will offer 4 children over 1 year period or as many as we can with free coaching with a PGA professional and also to pay a 1-year subscription to a golf club in the local area where the junior lives. Each recipient, irrespective of personal circumstances or financially challenged background, will have the opportunity to enjoy golf and play golf to the best of their ability.

Elexis remembered she was not from a middle-class background and worked extra hard to achieve what she did in such a small time in her 13 years.

​We know golf is an elite sport where certain talented children remain under the radar. Elexis was a big fan of the Golf Foundation and always believed in what they represent and what they achieve.

We would like to offer the opportunity to work with these juniors and give them a chance to grow not just in golf but also with life skills to take with them as they develop and improve. Elexis was lucky enough to be a girls golf rocks Ambassador in 2019 and we want others to have the same chance.

In October 2019 she was lucky enough to become a member at Woodhall Spa.
Elexis worked hard to bring her handicap down to 8.5 at the age of 13 and played for the Lincolnshire County girls’ team. For the first time in years, she felt like she was a part of something special and part of a golfing family.

She was crowned the under 14 Lincolnshire County champion in 2021.
Elexis never forgot where she started her golf and always believed that all young people, irrespective of race, gender, disability, religion, poverty or personal circumstances, have the opportunity to enjoy golf and play golf to the best of their ability.

Elexis’ dream was to play for the England golf girls and also a scholarship to America.

We would like to offer the opportunity to work with these juniors and give them a chance to grow not just in golf but also with life skills to take with them as they develop and improve. Elexis was lucky enough to be a girls golf rocks Ambassador in 2019 and we want others to have the same chance.
