This Months Competition

Strawberry Hill Golf Club

What a wonderful hidden gem this 9 hole course at Strawberry Hill is. They go out of their way to be informal, friendly and don’t themselves too seriously –it’s supposed to be fun after all. Women make up almost half the membership, the highest percentage of almost any club in the country, contributing in no small part to their unique relaxed atmosphere. It may be over 100 years old but it’s clearly stood the test of time. Over the last 18 months a lot has been going on to improve the facilities and it now has a hugely popular junior section.

Last year they introduced the Adult Academy section via their Get Into Golf scheme, where newcomers or those returning to the game, can gain some valuable tuition and know-how from the qualified coaches, who run courses throughout the spring & summer seasons (£30 for 4×1 hour lessons). The attraction of the Academy is that it allows beginners to become more familiar with the club and the game over the passage of the year, receive regular coaching from their professional. We know playing on the course can be daunting for beginners but those joining the Academy last year voted it a success and are now playing regularly. So why not look them up on www.shgc.net or just pop in and have a look round.

Club professional Peter Buchan and his team offer a range of tuition courses and also run one of the best-stocked pro shops of any golf club in the area with a good choice of equipment including Callaway, Taylor Made and others. Beautiful surroundings, idyllic location, & a friendly welcome, what could be better?
