Katrina Gillum from Lilleshall turns Professional

Katrina Gillum

Shropshire County Ladies are pleased to share the news that Katrina Gillum will be embarking on her first year as a professional golfer in 2019. She will be playing primarily on the Santander Golf Tour (held in Spain) and the LET Access Series (held across Europe), with her first tournament expected to be during the last week of March in Caceres, Spain.

Katrina, who has been an active County player – progressing from a junior member to representing the 1st team at County Week on several occasions, will be supported by her brother Ashley who will be her caddie on tour. They would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported Katrina throughout her amateur career and look forward to this next chapter in their lives.

In order to pursue her dream, Katrina is fundraising to help cover some of the costs of playing abroad (with the average cost per tournament ranging from £1,500 to £2,000). If anyone is kind enough to donate to this effort, via https://www.gofundme.com/katrina-pro-golf-dream, she would be extremely grateful. In addition, if anyone knows of any businesses that would be interested in supporting Katrina via corporate sponsorship, please ask them to get in contact by emailing katrinagillum@googlemail.com

(Note: For anyone wishing to donate, it is possible to do so without the “tip” that the GoFundMe platform is enticing donors to leave by selecting “other” from the drop-down menu and setting the tip value to zero).
