Ladies Golf Academy this Sunday – free session for all newcomers!!

Calling all women, existing, new, intrepid and enthusiastic! This coming Sunday 17th November, midday at March Golf Club, our club Pro Alex is holding a free of charge coaching session specifically for ladies. If you`ve never played before, or do want to rekindle that old golfing bug come along and spend some time with other like minded ladies and receive some professional guidance at the same time. Make new friends, enjoy a fresh social circle and play a great game for the rest of your life. We have no age limit, welcome all abilities and can provide all equipment. All we need is you and a positive attitude.

One of our ladies, Gail, has progressed from absolute beginner to a confident, competent golfer in a very short period of time. She says…

“My husband wanted me to learn golf so we could play together. Just to shut him up I booked some 1:1 lessons with Alex, March Golf Pro, then joined in with the Ladies Academy. In just a short time I`ve won some competitions and got a hole in one!! Made lots of new friends and am completely hooked on golf!”

So we look forward to seeing some new faces just before midday. If you have any questions, queries, require directions or need a welcoming voice please call Alex on 01354 657255 or email alexoldham@btinternet.com
