RAY Lukeski and Steve Lukins were the only winners for Enmore Park Seniors when they suffered a 5-1 defeat at Honiton, writes Richard Walsh.
On Friday 16 club members took part in the Seniors MET Shield at a windy Minehead while another group of eight played at the same time in the rain at the Mendip Spring anniversary event, postponed from May.
The only winner was Carl Netto who took the prize for ‘nearest the pin’ on the second hole at Mendip.
Meanwhile, since the re-opening of Enmore after the Covid lockdowns there has been a massive influx of new junior golfers at the club, either visiting the driving range with parents, attending group coaching session or taking individual lessons.
Throughout the school holidays, PGA Assistant pro Harry Brown ran a series of ‘Boredom Buster’ events which introduced youngsters between the ages of seven and 13 to golf.
The participants learned new skills in every aspect of the game and made new friends as they competed in a series of games and competitions to win prizes.
The events, which involved 25 different children, were a huge success. Many of the participants have now been enrolled in the group coaching programmes at the golf club.
At present, there are two junior coaching sessions that run on Saturday mornings. Session one is from 10am – 11am and session two is from 11:30am – 12:30pm.
Each session is £5 per child with clubs and golf balls provided. Moving forward into the the new year, the junior coaching and membership will be developed into a structured format, ensuring the skills are put in place on the practice facilities and put to the test on the golf course.
