The pro shop team led by head professional Ian Parker and assistant Ryan Kearns have been providing one to one coaching and group sessions to members and newcomers.

A group of 10 ladies who started lessons in February made it onto the course for the first time last week with their coaches and the ladies captain and vice-captain, Brenda Smith and Emma Duckworth.

The juniors too are rapidly improving with two wins for Maddison Elwin in a week, cutting her handicap by 11 while Louis Hudspith scored 44 points to win the Men’s Midweek Stableford.
