Ross Golf Club’s Senior members have witnessed a highly unusual set of circumstances to kick-start their hectic 2018 programme of golfing activities, with a catalogue of inclement weather playing the key role.

In the space of just a few weeks, snow resulted in the enforced re-arrangement of their Annual Dinner, the highlight of their social calendar.

Heavy rain then caused the postponement of their opening Summer friendly fixture and the next day, when visiting the Cotswold Hills Golf Club which overlooks Cheltenham, the match had to be abandoned after a few holes played because of dense fog.

However, this did not deter the seniors who embarked upon a two day away trip to the prestigious Enville Golf Club in the West Midlands, the perfect venue for 36 holes of golf on a demanding heathlands course.

This was interspersed with group coaching lessons provided by the Ross Club’s Aimpoint specialist Oli Leett, whose tuition covered a wide range of short play skills and drills including bunker play and putting distance control.

Club Captain Robert Tuttiett spoke for everyone in thanking Oli for another highly effective and enjoyable training initiative to follow Oli’s 2017 away tour, which enabled many of the same group to benefit at the Vale of Glamorgan Championship Course and Complex in Cardiff.
