Episode 3 - Inclusive Golf Kildare (solo - Gary)
In this solo podcast, Gary discusses a recent coaching group that he has started at Naas Golf Club, with thanks to Sarah Banville of Golf Ireland and Fiach Andrews of Kildare Sports Partnership/Kildare Co Co.
It is a first of its kind in Kildare, and very thankfully some groundwork had been done by Naas GC member/volunteers pre-Covid. Their training and help each week has been invaluable. After many courses and training days/evenings, Gary began the 6-week "Inclusive Golf Kildare" at Naas Golf Club in February 2023 and the 6th/final week will be taking place soon.
If you, or your club/organisation are considering running an inclusive course like this, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Golf Ireland, we can help point you in the right direction!

Episode 2 - Why Play Golf?
Gary Shaw (PGA Trainee Golf Professional at Naas Golf Club) and Liam Grehan (PGA Trainee Golf Professional at The K Club) discuss the exciting upcoming golf Netflix series, "Full Swing", which takes viewers behind the scenes of the world's top tour professionals, including Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and more.
This leads us to a discussion about our own journey into golf as kids and the likelihood that more will find interest in golf after seeing this Netflix series. And finally, we share our tips on how to get started on your own journey into golf, how you could become a member and enjoy all the benefits of this wonderful game!
Sit back, pop on the kettle, and if it's past February 15th 2023, watch the Netflix series "Full Swing" after this episode!
