She Loves Golf Event a Success

12 December 2016

Timaru She Loves Golf Ambassadors What an amazing day at our She Loves Golf event held on 11 December at Sir Basil Arthur Park, Timaru. We had 38 ladies attend the event, mostly first timers, others that had been away from the game for some years and wanting to come back to the game.  Having Kerryn Starr (ALPG Coach) and Pete Tutton (Golf Stop) on-board to assist with coaching was a huge help, and judging by some of the shots at the back end of the event, it would be fair to say the coaching tips worked – my thanks to Kerryn & Pete for giving up...
