Coaching Session - 26th February 2017
Despite the cold wind 22 Devon girls from 13 clubs across the county attended a coaching session at Exeter University on Sunday, 26th February.
Tiffany MacKenzie, the County Performance Coach, and Mike Cayless ran the session. The University kindly offered Devon Girls the use of their all-weather short golf area. The girls were put into small groups and they worked on their bunker shots, short and long chips and pitching. It was great to see all of the girls working together and enjoying their golf. They all left the session with new skills to practise and new golf friends.
Many thanks to all of the parents for transporting the girls and a big thank you to Tiffany and Mike for organising a great session.
The next session is at Exeter G&CC on Saturday 25th March and another session has been booked at Woodbury G&CC on Saturday, 29th April.
