OVER the Easter break Harry Brown, the PGA Assistant Professional at Enmore Park Golf Club ran several junior coaching sessions which introduced a number of new children and their parents to the course.
He said: “I ran four sessions in total, on Wednesday and Friday each week, that we advertised through the members email system and on social media.
“The amount of support we got was great and in total the sessions were attended by 34 youngsters. A lot of members enrolled their own children and grandchildren many of who were complete beginners, which was great to see.
“Some had played before, but not many so to get that many new faces was brilliant.
“Everyone at the club has been really encouraging in getting these junior sessions off the ground again, especially several of the Ladies Section who really helped me to run them. I honestly couldn’t have wished for it to have gone any better.”
That wasn’t all because Harry also ran a free taster session on the middle Saturday of the Easter break.
He added: “These went really well and attracted 15 brand new students who have now been to the two paid for sessions that I have put on since that.”
