"It was a marvellous day and we feel it was very successful," he said. "The follow-up interest has been encouraging."
Five girls have already joined the club and others are attending the regular weekend coaching sessions organised by Angus - and they sometimes outnumber the boys.
Now all the girls are being invited back for a follow-up session - and Angus is planning another taster for 24 more girl beginners on April 1st. He’s also organising two taster sessions for women on the afternoon of Sunday April 6 and the morning of Tuesday April 8.
His initiative is backed by the Worcestershire and Herefordshire County Golf Partnership and it reflects the aims of the English Women’s Golf Association to drive forward women’s golf.
Angus was well supported by the club. His assistant, Steve Shilton, and girls’ junior organiser Angela Collip - a PGA level one coach - both helped take the sessions which started on the putting green and moved to the driving range.
Junior members Amy Millwood and Georgia Jenning-Potts were also involved and, at the end of the session, members of the ladies’ section provided a tour of the clubhouse followed by sandwiches and cakes. They also chauffeured the youngsters and their parents on short buggy rides to see the course.
The event ended with the presentation of certificates, prizes and goody bags.
