Ladies golf taster day held at Richmond Golf Club

More than 20 women were given free coaching at a golf taster day at Richmond Golf Club.

The sessions were taken by resident PGA professional Mark Robson from the Graeme Storm Golf Academy, which is based at the Club.

Mark went through the basics of the sport including putting, driving and chipping.

Mark said: “It was a superbly run event which the ladies loved from start to finish.

“There was a great buzz around the club and some extremely good golf played.

“On the whole, it was a great representation of what life is like at Richmond Golf Club.’

Barbara Gregory, champion of the Women-in-Golf programme at the club added: “It was lovely to see so many ladies having such a good time.

“Golf is great fun, echoed in all the laughing that could be heard during the afternoon.

“Together with our professional Mark, and with many members helping out, the ladies had a great introduction to golf at this event.

“As part of our engagement with the Women-in-Golf charter, our Golf Club is committed to help and support more women & girls to get into golf.

“Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time learning the fundamentals of the game and many have indicated that they would like to get further involved with the sport. To round off the day everyone enjoyed a glass of Prosecco on the club patio, bathed in sunshine.”

Another free golf taster session is planned for the near future.
