Throughout her career Lynn hosted a TV Show called “Golfing the World” broadcast throughout America and says “It was a long time ago and I enjoyed every minute. I got to stay in amazing places and experience many of the great courses and Spas at top golf resorts.

Lynn has a passion for the game and excited with her recent role at Glasson.

“Glasson is a very special venue. I knew it the moment I arrived,” she says. “You only have to look out the window of the hotel reception to know you are in special place. I get great satisfaction when I drive into Glasson because you are instantly hit with the WOW Factor and It lasts throughout. My drive will be to ensure members enjoy the experience of their club and visitors get to enjoy the Experience of Glasson.”
