St. Enodoc Golf Club - Di Mindel appointed Ladies Captain at St Enodoc

Di Mindel appointed Ladies Captain at St Enodoc

At the recent Ladies AGM the Lady Members elected Di Mindel to be their Captain. Niblick asked Di for an instant mini autobiography and this is it ...........

I was born in Kisumu, Kenya, and spent my first ten years in East Africa.  My parents came to the UK as a family in 1962 and I went to school in Leeds.  They moved to New Malden, Surrey, where I attended Pitmans Secretarial College in Wimbledon. Then went on to work for the Newspaper Society in the City and on to Pfizer in Kent.

I joined BOAC as an air stewardess and had nine enjoyable years in which time I met my husband, Tony. Had two children and moved to Cornwall in 1985, when we purchased a farmhouse and redundant farm buildings, which we converted into holiday cottages and ran the business for some fifteen years before retiring and moving to St. Tudy.

On occasions I accompanied Tony to a variety of club golfing events, simply strolling around the beautiful golf courses.  Several of the St. Enodoc ladies prompted me into swinging a golf club rather than just walking - and my golfing career started!!!!! Little did I think the journey would take me to this highly privileged position.

We wish Di every success during her period of office.
