She Loves Golf was successfully launched with Canterbury with over 80 women participating in the event. Riccarton Park Golf Complex were a fantastic host venue providing great facilities with the covered driving range, thousands of golf balls were hit with plenty of smiles. The women were treated to some awesome samples from Tasty Pot Co and goodie bags from LOVE Golf along with their own She Loves Golf t-shirts. Members of the Canterbury Golf Women's team was also on hand to provide some tips along with the women's committee and along with professional Kerryn Starr.
"We are grateful for the support provided along with the facilities from Riccarton Park Golf Complex" said Golf Development Manager Rachel Thow. "There are a number of golf clubs that have put together specific women's coaching programmes which is a great way to introduce them to the game, this will provide a great follow on for those wishing to get more involved in the game".
There are a number of clubs now offering their own taster events and women's beginner programmes to encourage women to try golf in a fun and social environment. There were also more than thirty kids that came along on the day to hit a few balls and use the SNAG inflatable driving range and play a round of mini putt.
