February’s event marked the one year anniversary for DRIVE! and was celebrated with cake, fizz and the ‘Skill set challenge’ where members and guests competed with best drive, pitch and putting challenges.
Now with 35 members and growing, members of the network have really got into the swing (sorry) of things and it has been fantastic to see the transformation of those who have gone from complete beginner to feeling confident enough to participate in corporate golf days. Others have gone on to have lessons outside of the events and in some cases, have gone on to join their local golf club. The initial ambition of the group was to get business women into golf and importantly, to enjoy the game.
Lottie Fletcher from Birketts won the ‘Skill set challenge’ and took home the trophy despite initial reservations about the putting aspect, having not practiced for a while!
Remember – you can come along and try it out at any time, regardless of whether you have picked up a club before as the golf professionals are on hand to offer support!
