Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes recently visited the Vale of Llangollen Golf Club to meet with staff and learn more about the organisation.
He met with manager Hayley Henson and marketing director Steve Cooke and heard about the important role the club plays for the local area.
It has over 500 members and employs seven people, including five green staff, and attracts over 5,000 visitors to the Llangollen area to play golf, many of whom stay in the area to the benefit of the local economy.
Mr Baynes praised the club for being very active in raising money for charities including Nightingale House Hospice, Vale of Llangollen Canal Boat Trust and the Wales Air Ambulance Charity.
The club is also very focused on preserving and improving the environment and ecology on and around its beautiful course as can be seen on its website - https://www.vlgc.co.uk/environment-ecology/
Steve Cooke said: “We are glad to play a role in attracting visitors to the region and always happy to meet with local representatives to share our current activities and future plans."
Mr Baynes said: “I had a very enjoyable visit to the Vale of Llangollen Golf Club and it was fantastic to meet with both Hayley Henson and Steve Cooke.
“It was great to hear about the club’s role in bringing visitors to the area and how this benefits the local area and I was particularly impressed to hear about their continuous hard work in raising money for incredible charities and caring for the environment and ecology on and around the golf course."
