GOLFERS will be limbering up for a round in two new practise nets at Monmouth Golf Club.

Their installation is the latest inititaive at a course described as “the prettiest in Wales”, just a short drive away from the English border.

A club spokesperson said: “The committee and staff at Monmouth Golf Club continue to work tirelessly to improve the facilities and equipment available to its members and hundreds of annual visiting golfers.

“The latest initiative has seen the installation of two new practice nets, much needed by golfers wanting to loosen-up before tackling the rugged terrain of the prettiest course in Wales.

“The project was led by Chair of Greens Len Lane, who worked tirelessly over many weekends in his spare time to clear the overgrown designated patch of ground, and then lay the foundations ready for the erection of the nets.”

The nets were declared open for use by acting men’s senior’s captain Brent Tyrrell and men’s vice-captain Rob Pilot, ready for last weekend’s action, which saw the club hosting a national qualifying competition, the winners of which will enjoya trip to the 2023 US Masters.

Also, in line with their community amateur sports club status, the club is delighted to be working with the three primary schools in Monmouth to introduce children to golf.

Free of charge weekly sessions, led by Ollie Moss and Sam Swingwood, have been set up with Osbaston Church in Wales School, Kymin View School and Overmonnow School, all of which are delighted to have the additional sporting experience available to their pupils.

The spokesperson added: Monmouth Golf Club, “the prettiest course in Wales,” welcomes players of all ages and abilities, and there are flexible membership packages on offer.”
