With the summer holidays in full “swing”, our resident Professional Alan Gibbons and his assistant, Josh Dixon came up with the fantastic idea of running an introduction to golf camp at the “Field of Dreams” aka Caldy Golf Club.
Initial interest in the course reached fever pitch and the booking sheet was full after just two days of going live!
All in all, the course, which spanned a couple of weeks, was attended by twenty eight budding young golfers with their ages ranging from 4 all the way through to 13!
Over the duration of the course, the eager young stars, under the watchful guidance of both Alan and Josh, were taught how to chip and putt. Their long game skills were then honed on the driving range, before they were taking down to the old 17th to practise their approach shots. The course culminated with the future stars being let loose to play a few holes on the course.
All in all, and as can be seen from the photos below, a great time was had by everyone! Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy your days are numbered!
The club will be running another course over the next fortnight and hopefully, this will act as a feeder for the regular coaching provided by our Professionals on Saturday morning. For further details, please contact Alan or Josh at our Pro Shop.
A big thank you to our Board of Directors for agreeing to fund this great initiative. Hopefully, this will be the start of something special. The future is bright!
