I had quite fancied taking up golf for a few years and while all the Dungannon female golfers are absolutely lovely and so encouraging the course can be a very intimidating prospect from the restaurant window!

My main obstacle was having someone to learn and play with – so when I got a call from one of the current Dungannon women, who I had known through other sport, to tell me about the Get into Golf initiative, I was persuaded to give it a go.
This was exactly the prompt I needed to go along!

That was 2016. Now I am playing three times a week with my new best friends, getting golf clubs for Christmas, going on golf weekends away and thoroughly enjoy the craic on and off the course.
