Our First Charity Golf Day for West Kent Mind

We were very excited to sponsor our first charity golf event for West Kent Mind at Hever Castle GC yesterday.

It’s not often that new golfers, beginners or improvers get the chance to be involved in charity golf days, as they can often require participants to have a handicap and play 18 holes on a long, championship course.  Having only taken up golf this year, our girls can often be a bit daunted by that prospect and aren’t quite ready for that challenge.  Golf Like a Girl worked with West Kent Mind to find a way to include our new golfers in the golf day, but in a way that wouldn’t feel quite so daunting.

Our 9 hole ‘Texas Scramble’ competition was led by PGA coach Marisa Newman, who looked after our group of 10 participants out on Hever’s ‘Princes’ course. There were nerves and excitement aplenty, but everyone entered into the spirit of the event with enthusiasm and determination. We’d like to say ‘well done’ to all of those who entered the event so soon on your golfing journey. You were all brilliant!
