Women getting into golf
Trentham's beginner golf clinics have attracted an excellent group of 26 women, some of whom had never played golf before and some that just needed to tune up their skills. The four sessions started on Tuesday February 6th and will conclude on Tuesday February 27th.

The clinics have been designed for women of any age and give the opportunity to learn all about golf. The non-threatening, relaxed group environment also promotes the opportunity to network and socialise with other women who are starting out in golf. Equipment was provided and each session included morning tea afterwards.
PGA professional Matthew Duncan (Gisborne Golf Club) and golf coach Carol Leahney have been teaching at the clinics. Both have a very patient and friendly nature that puts beginners at ease, and they are happy to pass on their skills.
