‘Everyone was so welcoming - it was a fantastic day’
Treated to sunshine and blue skies, we had an incredible day at our This Girl Golfs event at Royal Mid-Surrey in Richmond, London.
In addition to the 18-hole Stableford tournament last month, the ladies enjoyed a pilates taster session, GolfGarb fashion show, pop-up boutiques from GolfGarb and Duca del Cosma, gin tasting, and much more.
The prizes included a holiday for two at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club in Spain, a pair of Duca del Cosma Italian golf shoes, A GolfGarb golfing outfit, an Etiqus watch voucher worth £199 and a Gaggia coffee machine.
Now looking forward to her well-deserved holiday in sunny Spain, winner Tina A’Barrow explained why she thought the This Girl Golfs events are so special.
Tina said: “The event at Royal Mid-Surrey was the second This Girl Golfs event I’ve been to. I also went to the one at Goodwood last year and I really enjoyed both of them.
“They are just really well organised from start to finish and there’s no lull in any part of the day. You get to meet new people, play a new course and I think they’re a great idea.
“I went along to both events by myself but everyone is so welcoming and inclusive. You’re all there for the same thing so you all have something in common to start with as well. Everyone I’ve been paired up with has been so lovely.
“The prizes on offer are just amazing, especially for the price you pay. To win a four-night golf break from playing a round of golf is fantastic.
“It’s not all about the prizes though because it is such a full-on day and there’s so much happening.
“The events are definitely really good value for money.
“You get breakfast, lunch and dinner, a goodie bag, then also the other activities like pilates, a round of golf and the potential to win those brilliant prizes.
“The programme flows really well right from the moment you arrive and start to meet all the other ladies.
“I was a bit shocked when I found out that I won to be honest, but I was very pleased.
“It was a brilliant round for lots of reasons. We had great weather and I’ve never been to Royal Mid-Surrey before so it was interesting to play a different course.
“I’ve been playing golf for about nine years, so not that long compared to some people.
“I think it’s a brilliant game. My other half got me into it and since then I have been totally hooked. I play whenever I get the opportunity and I love that you can play with anybody of any age or handicap.
“You can also always take something positive from golf no matter how your game is going. Even if you are having a really bad round, there’s always that one shot that keeps you coming back. When you hit a nice shot you think ‘oh actually I can do this!’”
