Paula & Barbara and Girls Golf Rocks
Former Ladies Captain Paula Cox and colleague Barbara Bradley, after junior organiser Gill Ladd indicated she was stepping down after ten years in the role, have undertaken a PGA course so they can help juniors to develop their skills and enjoyment from playing the sport.
Paula and Barbara, who joined the club six years ago, went on courses and studied "online" for the PGA ASQ Level 1 Certificate in coaching golf, a qualification which will enable them to help juniors learn skills which will last them a lifetime.
The duo will be helping me out on Saturday (April 22) when we will be opening our practice range to girls from 3pm to 5pm for an introductory lesson. Girls attending the "Golf Rocks" taster will be provided with golf equipment and need to attend in comfortable clothes. To join in the fun just call the pro shop on 01525244815 and we will book you in.
