Clubgolf Update April 2016

This year has started fantastically well for Clubgolf at Prestonfield, the award of Scottish Junior Club of the year for 2015 is something everyone at the club should be proud of.

The work never stops and we are now into our spring classes, we are presently coaching 90 children per week over 9 classes and have a constantly growing waiting list of children wanting to take lessons. It would be great if we could get more coaches trained up, if you would like to find out more speak to any of the coaches or email prestonfieldclubgolf@hotmail.co.uk.

The challenge for us all in 2016 is to get the children playing and improving their golf away from the classes. In order to do this we are putting forward two initiatives –

 

We would like to reserve  the par 3 practice area twice per week for exclusive use of Clubgolf juniors and invite them to come along with parents and other club golfers to practice.  This will be on Wednesday from 3.30 and Saturday from 4pm. They can still use the area at other times however we would ask members use the practice area by the clubhouse at these times. The times will be posted on the club website.

Each Saturday at 5.30 the Clubgolf eagle and birdie groups will be invited to meet at first tee and play 3 holes, this is to get them into way of being out on the course and putting into practice what they have learned at classes. The eagle and birdie groups are all children who have completed coaching in all aspects of the game and just need to put it into practice.

We have a lot of Clubgolf coached children who we expect to be starting to playing regularly at Prestonfield over the next few years, following our success a number of other clubs have been in touch asking about our programme and looking to do the same.

 

This could not have been done without support and encouragement from all of you, thank you for this and if you would like to get involved to help please get in touch.
