DEVELOPMENT OF NEW GOLFERS
After two successful "try out days" at Warrenpoint and Portstewart, three development centres were created in Autumn/ Winter of 2021. The centres are Donaghadee GC, Warrenpoint GC, and Laganview Golf Centre. Training sessions began late last year and after a Christmas break, resumed in early January. There are a total of eight new recruits, 4 at Laganview and two each at the other venues.
Annmarie pictured alongside Deirdre (volunteer) had never held a golf club until October last year when she took part in the try out day at Portstewart GC. Annmarie's progress has been outstanding after only four lessons and has so much more potential to be untapped. Watch this space!
Kim pictured on the left, described by Phillip (the professional) as a "natural" improves lesson by lesson and has the potential to develop into an excellent golfer!
Bryan displaying a strong backswing, has had golfing experience and is now fine tuning and getting himself course ready!
Gill pictured on the course at Donaghadee playing her first hole with pro Craig after only three lessons. An ex hockey player, Gill is fast becoming a very good golfer!
Ken, a returning golfer pictured also on the course, rediscovering his love and skills at Donaghadee along with Gill!
Sean pictured with Nigel (professional), has started his journey returning to golf. With only one lesson under his belt, Sean is hoping to meet up again for another before the end of the month!
Hugh, on the putting green at Warrenpoint. A former golfer hoping to return to the game via NIBGA. Also with only one refresher lesson, Hugh is hoping to continue his return to golf, with another lesson before the end January!
