The sun shone over the glorious setting of Hever Castle Golf Course on 24th June for our first ‘Golf Like a Girl’ event.
Eight women, all beginners, picked up a club for the first time and had a ball!
We met in the clubhouse at 10am for coffee and a good chat. It was lovely to have some time to meet one another before the coaching session. Some of us inevitably felt a bit nervous about trying something new, or returning to a game after a long break. I think it really helped to put us all at ease.
Hever has an extraordinarily friendly group of professional golfers. Our coaching session was led by Head Pro Peter Parks and Marisa Newman. The session was really good fun. All of us were amazed at how much we achieved and delighted to actually be out on the golf course so soon. The session gave a sense of what the game is all about and how enjoyable it is to try something new. Such a lovely setting to practice some ‘mindful golf’, too.
We rounded off our golf experience with a delicious lunch out on the terrace that overlooks the course. There was a lot of excited chat about some memorable moments of the coaching session, how some had enjoyed it far more than they’d anticipated and the all important topic… how to avoid not so flattering golf wear and what we might like to wear when we return to play again!
If you would like to come and ‘Golf Like a Girl’ there are 3 further dates arranged at Hever Castle Golf Club on Tuesday 21st July, Wednesday 9th September and Wednesday 7th October 2015. All golf days start at 10.30am and run until 2pm. The cost is £35, which includes all equipment, coaching, refreshments and lunch.
If you have played golf before, but perhaps haven’t played for a while, or are ‘improving’ you can play 9 holes of golf on the Princes course instead of the coaching session if you prefer. Your tee time will be arranged for you.
Group size is limited so booking is essential.
