Preparations for Inter-Counties' Match Week in July at Woodbury Golf & Country Club were in full swing at Saunton Golf Club recently. These days, though, it's about more than just playing golf. The Morning Session covered an interactive presentation on the principles of fitness for golf, nutrition & hydration, psychological demands and coping strategies. This was followed up by an exercise circuit for all the players including golfers' warm up, general fitness exercises in pairs and post round routines. They rounded the morning off with a well-earned sit down for Q & As with Team Manager Sally Charnock.

The Afternoon Session was no less physical starting with golf movement exercises and drills. The ladies then moved onto the short game covering pitching focus and specialist shots. DevonGolf coach Tiffany Mackenzie led the day with Team Manager Sally.

Inter-Counties' Match Week is Monday, 1st July to Friday, 5th July. DevonGolf are hosting the week at Woodbury Park Golf & Country Club. Teams from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset compete against each other over the 5 days in a series of Foursomes and Singles Matchplay matches. It's an intense week for golfers and spectators alike. If you want to see top flight golf, then put this in your diary. Play begins at 8am each day and spectators and supporters are welcome. There is no charge and car parking and the club facilities are available to all. See you there!
