ENMORE Park junior member Olivia Lake is making quite a name for herself in the golfing world.

The 13-year-old, who lives in Bishops Lydeard and attends Kingsmead School at Wiveliscombe, took up golf three years ago, after being introduced to the game by her grandfather, who has been playing at Enmore for over 30 years.

Since then Lake has reduced her handicap to 30 and recently won the first Junior Medal of the season at Enmore, with 43 stableford points.

The young golfer’s talents have been spotted by the county and she is a member of the Somerset Girls Performance Squad, who meet regularly throughout the year.

Last weekend she played for the Somerset Girls team against Devon at Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club, where she won her game and along with playing partner Lucy Stevenson - a member at T&P - helped to secure a victory for the county.

One of Lake’s heroes is Rory Mc Ilroy, who she watched play last year at the PGA Championship at Wentworth.

Lake has certainly set her sights high, saying: “My ambition is to continue to improve my golf and to reduce my handicap.

"I’d like to achieve a sport’s scholarship to Millfield School, and one day become a professional golfer and travel the world playing golf.”
