TGG's Harriet Shepard catches up with some of our event attendees to get their insights into the game.

Doreen Roberts, Heaton Moor, Stockport

How long have you been playing golf?

22 years.

How did you get involved in golf?

We had a caravan in North Wales and all the girls down there used to play, so they suggested I try having some golf lessons so I could join in with them. So I did and I just got hooked.

Then I joined Heaton Moor Golf Club, which I was hesitant about at first because I thought they would all be snobs! But they weren’t, they were absolutely fantastic.

So I carried on and carried on, got my handicap down and my name on the board and here I am still playing today.

What would you say to ladies who are thinking of trying golf?

Oh just do it, it’s a whole new world out there, with golfing holidays and days out like this, it’s just fantastic. Everybody should do it!

Julie Sherlock and friends, Heaton Moor, Stockport

What do you like about golf?

To me playing in medal competitions isn’t enjoyable really; it’s playing away for fun that’s the best bit. I love going on trips away and getting the chance to play different courses like Abersoch.

I also like beating men in mixed games; men don’t like being beaten by women!

What would you say to ladies who are thinking of trying golf?

You’ll meet some fantastic people and make great friends. We go away for weekends and travel a lot and always have a laugh whatever the weather. It’s a great sport. We also like to drink a lot!

Sandra, Duckinfield Golf Club, Cheshire

How did you get involved in golf?

I started playing when I was living in India because that’s what everybody did to be social. Then I joined the club at Duckinfield and went back and forth playing between there and India.

Why do you like playing golf?

It’s very social and you get to make some good friends.

What would you say to ladies who are thinking of trying golf?

Just do it, because it’s not only social but it’s exercise and a great way to spend the day. Much better than doing housework anyway! It gets you out of the house and gives you the opportunity to meet different people.

Any golfing tips?

No not really just take lessons!

Jan Keen, Devonshire

When did you start playing golf?

2000, so 16 years ago.

How did you get involved in golf?

We were visiting friends in America who played golf and my husband suggested that we should learn to play too. I told him not to be so stupid but we gave it a go anyway and started having lessons. We both enjoyed it and we kept it up, so we got into it through friends really. We were both playing several sports already, so it was a new endeavour for us.

Why do you like golf?

I suppose I’m quite unusual. It’s not the be-all and end-all for me, I get bored over 18 holes and I chose not to be Lady Captain and to do juniors and new to golf ladies instead. So as a Volunteer Coach I did my level 1 certificate in coaching golf and then my level 2.

I like that I’m outdoors on the mountains but I think that as a game it’s too long, if you play netball or tennis the games are much shorter.

I also like that you get to meet a nice group of people through golf and I think that’s what the new to golf ladies enjoy about it. We have about 20 and some of them are never going to do 18 holes but they come for the coffee and the cake and the social bits and that’s it really.

I don’t think it’s an easy sport, it’s hard and I don’t know how it will develop personally. You can have all these campaigns and lessons but the problem is who will take the ladies out on the course after they’ve had lessons. They need a converter, someone who takes them from the driving range and the lessons and on to the course.

What would you say to ladies looking to get into golf?

I would ask them if they like wine or coffee and if the answer is yes then they should definitely come along! We’ll have a drink and a natter and then we might hit a few balls.
