Girl Meets Golf - Golf Taster Days In Hertfordshire



If you want to get fit, make friends and get out in the fresh air then have you ever thought about trying out a day on the golf course? More and more women in the UK are getting into playing golf, and golf professionals such as Lydia Ko and Charley Hull are moving the image of the sport away from the dated stereotype of it being a traditional sport for older men!

So why is golf so great for you? Well firstly and most importantly it's fun! Golf is a really sociable sport and a brilliant way to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. There's plenty of time for a good old chat as you make your way around the course, and if you take it at a leisurely pace you won't be too puffed out to talk. Being outdoors is also a proven way of improving your mood - lowering your stress and increasing your self-esteem. And for those of us who might have over-indulged recently (naming no names!) an 18 hole game of golf uses up at least 900 calories so if you are looking for a fun way to keep fit then it's the perfect solution. 

However we know that it can often be a bit daunting trying out a new sport for the first time and so the brilliant Girl Meets Golf have come up with a fantastic idea – golf taster days that are just for us girls! They are running these days at a range of stunning Hertfordshire venues (as well as others in the South East) and they promise to be a brilliant day out.



The golf taster days typically start with tea, coffee and pastries as you get to meet your fellow golfers (well, you’ll need to keep your strength up for the day ahead!). Then you’ll head out onto the course and spend the morning getting golf coaching from a PGA professional. This is your chance to find out a bit more about the sport and ask any questions that you may have. When the morning’s over you’ll come back inside for a tasty lunch which includes a glass of wine or a soft drink. After lunch there's some more coaching followed by another coffee or tea and wrap-up by the pro. You can then relax those tired muscles in the venue’s spa facility or just chill out with your new friends.

What’s more if you are looking for something a little bit different for a hen do, a special birthday or even a day out with your work colleagues then the Girl Meets Golf team can arrange your very own golf taster day – catered to your every need. They even offer vouchers so that you can give a friend or loved one a fantastic day out as a birthday treat!

Sometimes it’s nice to bring a friend along so there are special discounts for friends booking together. The taster days are run in smallish groups (of normally 6 to 8) so places are limited and it pays to book as early as possible to make the most of them.

I think these golf taster days sound amazing and it’s a fantastic initiative to get women more involved in golf. If you’d like to find out more about Girl Meets Golf then you can find them on Facebook or book your day out online  here.

If you have any questions about their taster days they are always happy to have a chat so give them a ring on 01727 750779.
