DEVONPORT Golf Club professional Nathan Stubbs is optimistic that the sport is still in a healthy position despite falling membership numbers.
In an attempt to convert the thousands of casual players into members, the club is holding an open day tomorrow for keen golfers to get a taste of what the club has to offer.
“All across the country golf memberships are in decline, but actual golf numbers are quite strong,” Stubbs said.
“We’re trying to get people aware of what we are doing here at Woodrising and give the place an official opening.
“A lot of changes have been happening – we’ve renovated the pro shop and the driving range is up and running again and open to the public.”
Now two months into the job since taking over from long-time club professional Ron Garwood, Stubbs and his wife, Jacqui, are not finished with the projects yet.
A qualified club fitter, Stubbs will introduce computerised technology to fit golfers with the highest quality brands to suit their requirements.
“It’s all about providing the highest level of service and giving everyone that full experience,” he said
An indoor centre is also close to being completed at the club, which will allow Stubbs to teach and fit players all-year round, regardless of the weather.
The open day will be held tomorrow at the Devonport Golf Club from 10am-4pm with a sausage sizzle provided. For further inquiries contact the pro shop on 64272068.
