Academy Testimonial – Viv Williams
January 2011 – The start of a new year.
“Having been retired for a couple of years, I felt the time had come to introduce a new activity into my life. Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club were offering an Academy Membership to take part enjoying all the great things they had to offer to learn how to become a “good” golfer. They offered a very good comprehensive package at a reasonable cost.
I took up their offer and it is a decision I have not regretted for a moment. The Club Pro, Peter Hammond gave me 10 one to one lessons, two lessons on course management plus the benefit of his expertise and patience. Also included in the Academy Membership were 12 9-hole rounds of golf – all of which were enjoyed over the period of six months.
On completing the Academy Membership I joined a as a Full Member in July 2011. I completed 3 cards for my handicap at the end of July 2011 and joined the ladies for their “roll-up” on Friday mornings. I was made to feel welcome and very much part of Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club. The members of the club have been very supportive and are only too willing to help and encourage you in so many ways.
I would like to say thank you to Peter Hammond and his team for their encouragement, coaching and ongoing support. I look forward to the continuance of playing and improving my game in this friendly and welcoming club.”
