Sheets with the induction booking times for those who wish to use the golf simulator are now on boards next to the door of the Golf Studio. Groups of up to four can be taken at one time. Not everybody who wants to use the Golf Studio will need to have an induction but there must be one person who has had an induction in any group using the equipment.
Inductions will take place at set times over the next couple of weeks with use of the golf studio being opened to the membership from Monday the 15th of April. Junior coaching will have priority of use. The clubhouse opening times will also have an influence on the availability of the golf studio for bookings, as will other major club events.
For information on the golf studio please contact the Golf Studio Management Group who are managing the facility namely
Dave Thorne – Level two coach
Ker Farquhar – Club and Club Facilities committee member
Ronnie Macdonald – Level one coach and Golf Course committee member
Colin Mackay – Vice Captain, House Convenor and committee member
To ask questions you can contact Dave Thorne by text or call on 07729 601627 or Colin Mackay on 07739 372616 (please avoid sending questions to the club manager who is kept busy with other club duties)
The golf studio and simulator has now been successfully constructed within the clubhouse. The next step will be to hold induction training. This will help ensure the Golf Studio is being operated and maintained correctly so that all may benefit from this fantastic addition to Forres Golf Club.
