Get Juniors into Golf - a Stanton initiative
Please Help To Get Our Juniors Into Golf!!!
Junior Coaching Sessions Are Starting Very Soon
We Need All Your Encouragement
Juniors Are Our Future Stars
Recently-appointed Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club Assistant PGA Professional, Richard Dunsby and his colleague Tom Rowe, Assistant PGA Professional, are this year spearheading an initiative to promote the Stanton Junior Section by running Junior coaching sessions on a weekly basis.
These coaching sessions will take place every Saturday between the hours of 1 p.m.- 2 p.m. depending on the number of Juniors that participate. The times and group sizes may vary, and will be decided as soon as sufficient numbers have signed up for the sessions. As many responses as possible are needed from everyone so these coaching sessions can be put into place as soon as possible.
Rich and Tom are aiming the coaching sessions at all ages and all standards of Junior from beginner through to low-handicappers. One of their main aims is to bring all the Juniors together so they can all help each other and to encourage all Juniors whether they are Members or not, so please spread the word to friends and relatives!
The coaching sessions will be made fun and productive so everyone can enjoy the experience. A methodology will be followed week by week, which, with plenty of practice will pay off in the long run for the Junior's golf game.
Attendees will all learn the basic fundamentals (if they don’t already know them) covering all aspects of the game: putting, chipping, pitching, iron play and driving, together with the importance of knowing and understanding The Rules of Golf, etiquette and sportsmanship.
Responses are needed as soon as possible so the coaching sessions can get underway.
The deadline for securing a placement will be Sunday 17th May.
For further information please contact Rich (via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0115 9372390) or see either him or Tom in the Stanton-on-the-Wolds GC Pro's Shop
An application form is available for downloading, which should then be completed, signed and returned to the Pro's Shop with payment to secure a placement. Once the closing date has been reached, full details will be sent via email or a phone call.
The 6 sessions will cost £30 per person. When completed, another 6 sessions will continue providing the participants re-register. On completion of the 6th session, certificates will be issued to each Junior to reflect their hard work and progress. Individual reports will be issued with suggestions and advice on how to improve performances and also incorporate any feedback.
So, if there are any Juniors whom you feel would benefit from these coaching sessions, please feel free to pass this message on to them.

Purchase of a defibrillator
The Club has recently purchased a defibrillator - an IPAD NF1200 - which is located in the Lobby/Foyer of the Club Entrance.
There are many training demonstrations of AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillator)s on YouTube - you never know when you may find yourself in a situation where you need to make use of one.
Here is a typical example to get you started.
