In recent years, the Gorsley-based Ross-on-Wye Golf Club has focused on giving young people an introduction to golf, structuring their training and development through a number of initiatives, and the result has been considerable.
Members have formed a Junior Forum and have been working in conjunction with their Head Professional, Tim Hall and his ‘School of Golf’ team. They have been supported partly by generous donations and financial support from all member sections of the club, which has resulted in a real team effort.
The Juniors section and their parents wanted to repay that faith shown in them through a working party, to improve the facilities and general wellbeing at the Club’s Driving Range. It is now a more attractive practice area for members and visitors. The Club’s Greens Chairman, Arthur Reid spoke for everyone in expressing his gratitude and appreciation for a job really well done.
The occasion also coincided with Jon Hughes, from Carbon Conditioning, visiting to take the junior players through a professional and well structured physical development session.
This was followed by some friendly rivalry on the golf course, when the Juniors fielded a team to compete with the Club’s men’s B Team and Paul and Lisa Griffiths were thanked for this.
Ross Juniors Captain, Cam Haines and his thriving section are looking forward to another exciting season at a Club, where the culture for all members, young and old, is a combination of enjoyment and ‘continuous improvement’.
