I started playing Golf when I was 5. My dad bought me a set of golf clubs, took me to the driving range, and told me to "Hit the ball" and no other technical information.
Well, I thought ‘This is fun, even though the ball isn't going very far!’
After my first go, my Granddad then started to take me to the Golf Range at least once a week, where I used to watch nearly every shot fly left or right.
At the age of 8 I started coaching sessions with a Golf Pro, this is where it started getting technical and my love for the game really grew…Maybe because the ball was going straight?!
Since these sessions and understanding the game. Living next to a Golf Club, It became part of my routine to play on the course every week with my Dad, Grandad or Brother.
Throughout the years, Golf has enabled me too meet lots of people and play in different competitions.
I have been fortunate enough to play on many different courses around the world, and I can honestly say that every game has been different! Having played golf for over 10 years, I've realised that the harder you practice, the luckier you get!
Golf is a great hobby, whether its being played at a Golf Course, Range or Top-Golf. I love playing socially and competitively.
I am currently studying Occupational Therapy degree where I aim to incorporate Golf into therapy in years to come!
I am currently a member at West Essex Golf Club where I aim to focus on my short game, lower my handicap and take part in more competitions.
From the age of 5 through to 22, it is only in the last few years, I have noticed golf becoming a more popular sport, with more girls getting involved, which is great! I remember being a member of different local Golf Clubs when I was young and being the only girl on the course!
So, to any girls out there thinking about taking up golf, WE NEED YOU!
Pick up a club, get to the driving range, you won't know what it's like until you try it!
To any new Golfers who have just taken up the sport, GO FOR IT!!!!
Don't Give up....
Keep your head down and don't look up!'
