Ringway Golf Club is very proud of their development of junior and beginner ladies and men over the years and their respected professional James Salt isdelighted with the new programme – Operation 36 Golf - he has introduced to the club with great success.
James explained: “Operation 36 is designed to introduce and progress beginners in playing golf and their aim is to introduce a million new golfers to the game and get them to shoot par (36) for nine holes by 2025!
“In Operation 36 you actually play nine holes of golf, the pros can track your progress, the training is community based and there is a clear curriculum of goals.
“We use technology to guide training and by playing golf and combining with weekly educational classes learn and develop golf skills through ten divisions which can be progressed through. You have to shoot 36 or less to graduate through the divisions, with the final challenge being off the white tees.
“It is aimed at juniors aged 6-18 and their parents, adult beginners who want to learn to play and existing golfers who can’t break par.
“We are using with the juniors and will soon be introducing to the ladies and so far we have got 23 golfers through division 1 with 13 still working on their putting, then three golfers are trying from 200 yards average per hole which is from our Orange tees.
“It has provided great family fun days and a challenge that is suitable for any age and ability.
“What division could you shoot 36 from? For more information comeand see us in the shop or check out”
