Seekonk country club lets women get into the swing of things
July 27, 2013 by Mark
The Ledgemont Country Club in Seekonk recently announced that it is offering beginner clinics in golf specially designed for women who want to learn the basics of the sport, as well as proper techniques for swinging and putting. No doubt flyer printing is being used by the country club to make women aware of this unique opportunity.
According to Jack Tosone, the general manager of the country club, these clinics are held in an environment that is more relaxed so as not to be intimidating for women. There are no onlookers so women can be more comfortable and membership in the club is not required in order to participate. The clinics run for five weeks at a time and cover such areas as full swing, putting, and playing a few holes on the course. There is a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres after each class.
The golf course at the club was designed by Alfred Tull, an acclaimed architect, and has been noted by those knowledgeable in the field for its beautiful scenery, but also for being a challenging course. An 18-hole championship venue with a par of 71, it still encourages golfers of all levels to play on it. In addition to the gold course, the club offers a practice range where there are pitching and putting greens, target greens, and a practice bunker. In addition to casual play, the country club can arrange for organized tournaments during the golf season.
