Katrina Gillum has broken the Ladies’ course record at Shrewsbury Golf Club in the first round of the Shropshire Ladies’ County Golf Championships.

In a round featuring 7 birdies she shot 71 gross, two below par and five below the standard scratch for the day of 76. Katrina who plays off 1 handicap has aspirations to be a professional golfer and play on the Ladies European Tour.

Nineteen year old Katrina Gillum from Newport has broken Shrewsbury Golf Club’s ladies’ course record in a blistering first round of the Shropshire Ladies’ County Golf Championships. Katrina shot a round of 71 that featured seven birdies on the third, sixth, seventh, eighth, thirteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth holes. Two below par, she began her challenge for the championship five under the standard scratch for the day of 76.

Katrina plays at Lilleshall Hall Golf Club where she has aspirations of becoming a professional golfer and playing on the Ladies European Tour. She began playing golf nine years ago with her father and brother. Katrina’s golfing talent soon became clear as she rapidly began playing to single figures. She has a current handicap of 1 and is working with John Bandurak, Club Professional at Lilleshall Hall Golf Club, to hone her skills before looking to qualify as a tour professional in the next few years.

“I’m really pleased to have broken Shrewsbury’s course record. It came as a surprise as I was focused on putting in a good first round for the competition. I’ve been practicing hard and learning a great deal from my coach, so I’m playing well at the moment. The course was in great condition, which helps challenge you to play to a high standard of golf. When I put the card in I knew the score was a good one and suddenly I’m being congratulated on a new course record,” said Katrina.

Shrewsbury’s Lady Captain, Tina Robinson, said: “Katrina has played the course exceptionally well and we are delighted for her. Her impressive round beats the previous record and we shall be displaying Katrina’s card with pride in the club to celebrate her achievement.”

Shropshire Ladies’ County Golf Club Championship Organiser, Sheila Parker, said: “I’d like to congratulate Katrina on a great round of golf. This competition always fields a high calibre of golfer from across the county and it’s wonderful that Katrina has broken Shrewsbury ladies’ course record in the first round of this prestigious county tournament. I wish her well in her pursuit of a professional golfing career.”
