We were delighted to receive the funding for the development of our Nottinghamshire Junior Girls. This made it possible to achieve with the help of our Pro Richard Strange, a significant reduction in handicaps, a great team spirit and successful match results. We were also able to offer all girls in Nottinghamshire the opportunity to attend County coaching.
The Taskers Trophy funds will have an immense impact on the Junior golf in Nottinghamshire.
We will be able to provide extensive coaching from our Professional Richard Strange throughout the winter and into the new season. We will be able to encourage more juniors to play and enjoy the game of golf. We will be able to provide extra competitions for these girls. We hope to educate girls to be active, honest, punctual the list could go on. Our focus for next year, whilst still working on stroke technique and match play will be to concentrate on:
- The understanding of rules
- The mental attitude needed to control emotions and be successful
- Essential etiquette to uphold the high standards of the integrity of our game
- Social skills to include speaking after an event
- The different playing formats and how to adapt your play
- The above will be delivered by our Professional Richard Strange who will attend courses with England Golf and deliver to the girls to achieve this result
- To assist with this programme other qualified adults will be used
The majority of theoretical coaching will be done throughout the winter months. This coaching would not be possible without your funding
Early Spring will see the on course development of rules, match play formats.
Spring into Summer will be stroke development on the driving range and on-course coaching. Our successful outcomes of this program will enable us:
- To attain more success in the Inter-County matches Both scratch and handicap
- To have more girls confident in the rules
- To have a better understanding of the mental attitude needed to be successful
- To be more confident in delivering after golf speeches
- For girls to have the confidence and ability to enjoy the game of golf
This all underpins and supports our county development objectives
- Nottinghamshire County Golf wish to increase the participation of girls in golf
- The girls will feed into the County first and second teams
- This year 3 played for the first team and 1 for the second team
- That girls are confident playing on their own knowing rules and having good on course etiquette
