2019 Beginner Ladies Day

According to the opinion of a former president of the PGA of America (2016 – 2018) – Paul Levy – the growth of golf as a sport lies in the increase of female participation. According to a report titled “The Global Economic Value of Increased Female Participation in Golf” the interest of women taking up golf is on the increase.

At Paarl Golf Club, the Ladies’ Section – under the leadership of their captain – Helaine Strydom – shares these views as they have actively contributed in making it true. They have initiated a Beginner Golf Mentor Programme. It aim is to introduce, support and guide new ladies as potential members into the wonderful and challenging discipline of golf.

Last week Wednesday – 13 March 2019 – another exciting and active morning was launched introducing 9 new ladies. They were firstly received at the club, and then taken over to the driving range to introduce them to the coaching and practice facility and our PGA coach – Ben Fouchee. Ben showed them a few basics and the ladies were able to hit a few balls on the range.

Back at the club the Beginner Ladies were welcomed by Helaine Strydom. Ben explained and offered a coaching programme and other options of how to get into the game. The new ladies were also introduced to other lady members who were present and available to guide and mentor them as they progress. As golf can be a very intimidating sport for a beginner lady the new ladies were offered coffee and cake to put them at ease while many aspects were explained.

The ladies programme include options for group sessions or individual coaching with Ben Fouchee and a mentor program by the Paarl Golf Club Ladies Committee.

We are all looking forward to welcome these new potential members at Paarl Golf Club.
