P&K COUNTY JUNIOR GIRLS' COACHING AT STRATHMORE

Fifteen P&K County Junior Girls turned out for the second of this year's Girls' Coaching Sessions, which was held at Strathmore Golf Centre today.
PGA Professional, Gareth Couzens, put the girls through their paces at the driving range. There was also a putting lesson and a tricky little putting challenge, which Anna Jackson won. Well done Anna!

The girls then headed off to the "wee course" to enjoy 9-holes in the Autumn sun, courtesy of Strathmore Golf Centre. It gave everyone a chance to put into practise what they had learnt at coaching.
Zoe Davidson was presented with the North of Scotland Girls' Handicap Championship trophy, which she won in the summer at Blairgowrie. It was presented to Zoe by our P&K Ladies' County President, Dawn Butchart.
Well done to our Junior Secretary, Gillian Wallace, who organised the day.
