A warm welcome to new Professional shop staff member Eva Brunskill

We would like to extend a hearty welcome to new staff member in our Professional shop, Eva Brunskill.

‘Hello, my name is Eva Brunskill and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new assistant professional at your esteemed club. I have had a passion for golf since a young age and have been a member of Hillside Golf Club since the age of 10.

I have had the privilege of representing Lancashire and being a squad member of the Northwest of England at the junior level. These experiences have not only honed my skills but also instilled in me a great respect and love for the game.

In pursuit of my dreams, I was fortunate to receive a golf scholarship at Midwestern State University in Texas. There, I completed my degree in 2023, achieving a BSc in Psychology and minoring in Kinesiology and Coaching. This unique combination has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the mental aspects of the game, which I believe to be crucial in helping players reach their full potential.

It is an immense honor for me to join such a prestigious club like Formby. I am committed to furthering my skills and knowledge by completing my PGA qualification and turning professional. My ambition is to not only contribute to the success of the club but also to support and inspire fellow golfers in their journey.’
