Club professionals Matt Woods and Ben O’Dell conducted two taster sessions for 20 people last week.

The groups were both mixed in ability with some looking to take up the game for the first time and others looking to rekindle their love for the sport.

Fortunately, the weather held and everyone could hit some balls on the driving range and receive a free lesson.

For those interested in attending taster sessions in the future, or interested in club membership, then contact Jenny on 01491 873229.

Head professional Woods is hosting a Pro’s day and night event on Saturday, August 3. It is open to members and visitors and promises to be a great day with some excellent prizes on offer.

The cost is £60 per player which includes a BBQ and live music on the patio in the evening.
