Inspriring talent - Changing lives

ELEXIS'STORY

Elexi's 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.

By the time Elexis was 8, she had quickly picked up the game and had her first official handicap of 53 playing in  a golf competition at her first club the Leicestershire GC. 

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

In 2019 she became a member at Woodhall Spa, and at age 13 Elexis worked very hard to bring her handicap down to  8.5  and played for the Lincolnshire  county girls team.

And In 2021, she was crowned  the under 14 Lincolnshire county champion.

Elexis dream was to play for England golf girls and to achieve a scholarship to America.

Elexis was not from a middle class background, and she was extremely committed to working hard throughout her 13 years.
