“I am very passionate about women’s golf and what we can do to encourage more women into the sport, particularly business women, like myself.

“I am also aware of the importance of young people in the sport. In my day job, I see a lot of challenges with young people and connectedness because of technology.It is important for everyone’s mental health to get out onto the golf course, connecting with other people, playing a great sport and enjoying the environment,” Ms Kirkright said.

Ms Kirkright has been an avid golfer for over 15 years, initially as a member of a Women’s Golf Social group in Victoria.

“As a director of Golf NSW, I want to help execute and deliver on the strategic plan, but I also want to be available to support member clubs and their boards to grow the game. Their membership and profitability as also a focus of the strategic plan,” Mr. Medway said.

“I want to make available my experience in technology, business, law, and governance to help ensure that the game of golf in NSW continues to grow and that we can attract new participants to the game through varied approaches.

“Additionally, I want to ensure that we grow the game of golf for women in NSW so that the game has a greater mix of participants. Golf would then be viewed as a sport in which the whole family can participate.”
