Well..........Yesterday was my final day at RDGC. It’s been a brilliant 4 years and I will greatly miss my Juniors and the members.

I have met some incredible people along the way and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me 🥰⛳️

I will still be teaching the Mini’s every week. But communication will be through text/email. I will explain to all parents on Tuesday/Thursday which email/ number to use.

See everyone then

Wildcats Easter camp day 3/4

The juniors have been amazing and the buzz around the coaching is great to see!

Yesterday we played a game of knots and crosses. This is a great game to test their reaction skills and speed. See video below!

Today we went around the Academy holes and had a match play event! I was super proud of each of them on how they behaved, their golf skills and their course etiquette. We even managed to play 12 holes in 2 hours 👌😃.

Tomorrow we will be doing a singles stroke play around the academy holes.

See everyone there

Adv Mini/ Mini Easter Camp- Day 1 ⛳️🏌️‍♀️

With the weather improving we were able to continue our Easter Camp for another year running!

Today we worked on our putting skills. This is an area I have not recently covered with the younger juniors. We worked on our stroke and aim!

We finished the class off with a fun game of battle ships!

They all did extremely well and can’t believe how well they behaved on the putting green. I am certainly looking forward to the rest of the week.

Below are some pictures from today ⛳️🏌️‍♂️😊

Calling all Mini Golfers

As the Snow has made an appearance and the first few days of the Easter Camp couldn’t go ahead..... have no fear...... I have attached a great drill you can do from your living room ( parents permission first PLEASE).

I am TPI Junior level 2 qualified and they have some brilliant drills for you to do from home.

All you need is a plastic cup and a golf ball.

Post your pictures below if you gave it a go ⛳️🏌️‍♂️🏌️‍♀️

Mini Golfers Easter Camp 2021

Sadly due to the current forecast, I feel it’s best we cancel the first 2 days of the camp.

The weather seems to be improving for Wednesday on wards. I will keep an eye out and see if we can managed the last 3 days. Fingers crossed 🤞.

I will be in touch Tuesday night if I am able to keep the camp on for the end of the week.

Many thanks

Mini Golfers 2021

I just want to say........ well done to these Mini golfers. Some of them have just started at the coaching and I can’t believe how much they have grown all ready.

They stand where they are told to stand ( in the safety zones) and their clubs are on the ground when not using them.

And there golf...... is coming along amazingly ⭐️

I couldn’t be more proud of them 🏌️‍♀️⛳️✅

Here to a great 2021 golf season

Mini Golfers/ Wildcats Coaching

Please note the following for tomorrow coaching session:

1) when arriving to the coaching- please drop your junior off in the car park and allow the juniors to walk down and meet me at the bays. Please do not congregate in groups in the car park.
2) masks are not mandatory but if a junior wishes to wear one that’s okay.
3)please make sure they are wrapped up with enough clothing as it can get cold down the range.
4) tomorrow it’s £4pp, if possible please put the money into an envelope or if easier we can do bank transfer. This helps minimise the cross handling.

If you have any questions please email me direct on [email protected]

Can’t wait to get all the juniors back into their golf ⛳️ 🏌️‍♀️ 🏌️‍♂️
