Ladies Introduction to Golf
Over the last few weeks you may have seen an increase in the numbers of ladies around the club, especially on a Tuesday and Thursday night.
We sent out an invitation to ladies (new to golf) to sign up to 6 weeks coaching, to which we have had a great response, 60 ladies showed interest with approx 50 signing up.
A huge thank you to our Club Golf coaches who are whole heartily supporting this initiative, and giving up their time to teach the ladies, also to a great number of our members who are supporting the coaches every week.
