Easter Golf for Girls

The girls had an Easter Scramble on Thursday 29th March. Fun was had out on the course and there was chocolate on offer inside. It is great to see the girls enthusiastic about the season ahead. Thanks to Claire Mc Kenna our Girl’s Captain for presenting the prizes and a huge thank you to Lady Captain Pat for giving all the girls easter eggs.

Girl’s golf is busy with Leslie Walker coaching the girls weekly. Leslie is focusing on improving the game with particular emphasis on the swing, grip and stance. He is helping the girls improve their overall enjoyment of the game and at the same time teaching the girls invaluable skills. Looking forward to seeing the girls at the coaching sessions.
