Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 8. August 3, 1959



At the Invitation of the Tui Glen Golf Club, a most successful club day was staged by the University Club at that course recently. A couple of hours in the morning were devoted to coaching of a number of members, both male and female, keen to learn the fundamentals of the game. It should be pointed out here that the Club does not cater only for more "experienced" golfers, but is trying to encourage interest in the game amongst novices.

Those desirous of coaching were split up into small groups of three or four, and some of the better golfers in the Club, all low handicap men playing in the Wellington District Golf Association Arthur Duncan Cup Golf series, acted as coaches. Various reports from the "pupils' were highly complimentary, and the success was such that it is proposed to hold club days at a later date along similar lines. In the afternoon, the learners played a few holes with the better players, putting into practice what they had learned in the morning. All those interested in such outings are asked to watch carefully the golf notice board.
