Blackwood Golf Club has helped me fulfill a lifelong ambition to play golf. On retirement I checked the club website and found that lessons for beginners were available, and the descriptions of coaches were very helpful. I began with lessons and practice on the great facilities and found everyone to be very friendly making me feel welcome very quickly. I became a member 2 months later and was amazed that accomplished members invited me to play with them and did not care that I was just a beginner. After 6 months of membership, I have commenced playing in the Tuesday women’s competition and am steadily improving as a golfer.
