Swinging fit at the Claremont Golf Club

THE Claremont Golf Club will be hosting a Come and Try Swing Fit Day on Sunday 30 July for women in the community who are interested in trying their hand at the sport.

Run nationally, the Swing Fit program aims to encourage and promote female participation in golf by offering beginners a chance to learn the basics in a fun and social way.

The program sees participants learn skills including correct stance and club grip, swinging and movement, hitting the ball, putting with “poise and precision” and aiming.

The program also helps to increase range of movement and flexibility, improve upper, mid and lower body conditioning and even out cardiovascular health.

Claremont Golf Club PGA Championship professional Anthony Rowlings said Swing Fit was a fun, healthy and social way for women to get started in golf.

“The Come and Try Day is free for all women and all the equipment will be provided,” he said.

“Simply turn up in comfortable clothing, such as gym gear, and soft-soled shoes.”

Following the Come and Try Day, the Claremont Golf Club will be running a six-week Swing Fit program from Saturday 5 August to Saturday 9 September.

Held at 2.30pm each Saturday, the program will cost $20 for each 75-minute session and will include warm-up, golf skills and conditioning exercises.

The Come and Try Swing Fit Day will be held from 1.30pm-2.45pm on Sunday 30 July at the Claremont Golf Club, located at 1 Bournville Crescent, Claremont.
