Hard to believe it has been a year since our Big Wet! The golf course at Ashgrove is playing with more run once again, and we are seeing a much greater number of players on the course compared to last year, though that wouldn't be hard givien the floods and constant rain last January!
Tony and I are looking forward to a great year in comparison to last. We are focussing on promoting our club through introducing new players to the game via both beginner and junior coaching programs.
In November last year I completed a 5 week ladies beginner program with numerous new ladies participating. These programs are great way for the girls to be introduced to the game at an affordable price of only $70.00. I will be runing several more in this year so keep your eyes open for the dates; there may be someone you know who would be interested in learning to play.
Tony's Junior Program will continue to run throughout the year, with eight 6 week programs. There will be 2 programs operating for each of the school terms, held on Thursday afternoons between 4-5 pm, and on Sunday mornings between 10-11 am. Tony likes to keep his junior group numbers around 8-10 as he feels this way the kids get a greater amount of attention, creating better results. So to all our members, when you see Tony with the kids down on the bottom of the second fairway or out on the golf course, we would like to thank you for your patience given limited teaching areas at the club.
And to all of you that believe it's time to make imrovements to your game, we are available for private lessons through the week excluding Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Private 1/2 hour lessons are $40.00 and we also provide packages by way of lesson vouchers - buy a four voucher pack for $160 and get a fifth lesson FREE! Now that's great value. Drop into the shop or just give us a call, we're happy to help.
I look forward to seeing you out on the track.
Head Down Slow Back!
