A fun programme for women

8.15am 24th October 2005 - Course Development

Northwick Park, the innovative ‘Golf in an Hour’ sports complex based in Harrow, north London, has just announced a dedicated women’s coaching and lifestyle programme to be known as the Rainbow Club.
Maureen Madill, BBC broadcaster, coach, former tour professional and British amateur champion, has created and developed the Club to appeal to women golfers across the spectrum.
“I wanted to create a programme that covered more than just hitting balls and playing” Madill said, “and incorporated all aspects of a woman’s life – family, health, business, socialising and, very important, pampering. There are seven segments to the Rainbow Club and I hope it’ll prove not just colourful but fun. Northwick Park, with its superb playing and practice areas and wide range of facilities, is the perfect place to launch what we believe is a unique and innovative programme.”
David Piggins, chief executive of Playgolf, who own and operate Northwick Park, was equally delighted. “We have tried to build a fully comprehensive golf facility here at Northwick Park. One capable of giving attention to every aspect of a golfer’s development from the pure ball striking skills through to physical and mental development. We are thankful that someone of Maureen’s stature and ability has chosen us as the host venue for such an important programme as the Rainbow Club.”
The Rainbow Club’s colour-coded programme ranges from the red of the coaching segment to the violet of the pampering section and aims to accommodate the seven ages of woman. In golfing terms, it covers everything from the short game to the rules, from the long game to physical conditioning, from putting to course management. “Give it a go. It’s fun,” said Madill.
