Golf club’s 125th anniversary year off to good start
WELLS Golf Club members and guests marked the start of their 125th year celebrations with a gourmet dinner in the Clubhouse Restaurant.
A series of other social events are planned throughout the year together with new initiatives to encourage ladies to start playing for the first time or get back into golf.
Karen Alexander, Marketing Executive for Wells Golf Club, is herself new to golf and said: “We are delighted with the number of ladies who have already joined our new ‘Ladies Learn Golf’ beginners group coaching sessions.
“It’s great fun and lovely to see how quickly some ladies have already caught the ‘golf bug’, returning to practice on the driving range between coaching sessions.

“We were keen to offer beginners courses during the winter months so by the time the warmer weather and lighter evenings arrive we have built up a level of confidence to take full advantage of our spectacular parkland course facilities and reward ourselves with a relaxing drink on the clubhouse balcony afterwards.”
