We are currently recruiting for our Ladies’ section and have launched a new initiative called ‘Ladies Get into Golf’. We are asking for your help to introduce any interested, prospective beginner ladies (wives, girlfriends, sisters, daughters, friends, etc.) to the club.
If you know someone who may be interested in joining the Ladies’ section, then please invite them along to our Open Day so that they can give it a try.
New ladies who are beginners will initially be offered a FREE group lesson by Chris Clarke (the club professional) at the Open Day on Sunday 7th April (meet at 2:00pm for a 2:30pm lesson). Can’t make the Open Day? no problem; just attend one of two FREE taster sessions, either Thursday 25th April (4:30pm – 6:00pm), or Saturday 27th April (3:00pm – 4:30pm).
The taster sessions will be followed by a series of 5 weekly sessions to hone skills, costing a bargain price of £25 for each set of 5.
For further information please take a look at the leaflet below; download a copy and pass it on: Get into Golf Brochure
Interested ladies can reserve a place on the taster sessions by completing the application form in the leaflet, sending an email with details to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by just turning up on the Open Day.
