Last week saw the culmination of five weeks of golf lessons in local schools with the aim of getting more juniors involved in the game of golf. I have been teaching at both Skipsea and Aldbrough primary schools showing them the basics of the game including putting, chipping, pitching, full shots and finishing off with a golf festival at the golf club. The golf festival was a huge success with over 60 children visiting the golf club over two days. Each of them have improved greatly over the course of the 5 weeks and I hope that we see them on a Saturday morning at Junior Fun Golf.
Whist we are talking about encouraging new Junior golfers it bring me on to our initiative to encourage golfers of all ages. At Hornsea we have teamed up with HSBC and The Golf Foundation to bring you ‘Open Hour’. This is where golf clubs all over the country open their facilities to the public to allow them to have a go at golf completely free of charge.
The Hornsea Golf Club Open Hour will take place this Saturday from 1-2pm and I will be on hand to help anyone who wants any information about the game and to show them around the facilities at Hornsea Golf Club. I will be giving free lessons and providing golfing games for everyone to play. I sincerely hope that you pass this on to someone who wants to take up golf or simply has questions about the game, we are here to grow the game and with your help I am sure we can.
My final pick, which maybe more sentiment than anything else, is Lee Westwood. I, along with most of the country, would love to see Lee pick up a major championship, but it looks like his time has passed…or is it? Now back with Pete Cowan, the coach that took him to the top of the world rankings, Lee is seeing somewhat of a renaissance in his golf. He was very close to winning the Masters in April and played 3 rounds of great golf in the US Open before a poor final round…maybe this year Open is set up for him…I certainly hope so!
