First Coaching of 2021

New flag 2Our first squad training session of 2021 took place in mid April. The girls had a great time and it also gave us the first opportunity to display our new County Girls sail flag!

We are trying, as a county, to encourage more girls to stay in and enjoy the game of golf. Our Squad training is open to all girls, irrelevant of their handicap. We hold our sessions at The Norwood Park Golf Club usually on a Wednesday once a month, with an occasional weekend all day event. Our aim is not to take over the work of the girls personal coach but to add to it. We concentrate on team spirit, match play, rules sessions and of course lots of laughs and fun. From all of this we have a very successful scratch and handicap team that represents Nottinghamshire playing against Lincs, Derbys, Leics, Staffs, Shrops.

If clubs, coaches or girls would like further details of our squad training sessions please contact Sue Taylor via this contact form.
