Fynn Valley is Most Welcoming Club in England

In February Fynn Valley found out that they had been put forward for Most Welcoming Golf Club at the England Golf Awards 2017 and made it to the shortlist of the final two.

Last week a party of ten of the Club’s representatives made their way to Lord’s Pavilion in London to attend England Golf’s Annual Awards Gala Evening.

After a drinks reception and delicious meal amongst the great and good golf golf in this country, we waited with baited breath until the big moment….

The winner was announced to jubilation on the Fynn Valley table! We won, and the excellent film made for the evening by England Golf about the club was shown to the room. The film crew visited the club in February to make this and we think it demonstrates the club’s ethos really well. You can watch it here.

Fynn Valley’s Director of Golf, Ryan Parfett, accepted the award on behalf of the club and made a short speech.

The evening’s official photographer took a photo of the Fynn Valley group with the award and the sponsor, American Golf.

What a great looking bunch!

We are over the moon that over thirty years since we started golf at Fynn Valley, opening the driving range to “see how it goes”, our work to encourage diversity, equality and friendship in golf has been recognised.

This, of course, is only made possible with the support of our members and team here at the club, for which we extend our grateful thanks.

You can read more about why England Golf chose us for this award here.

If you still believe the stereotype the media love to churn out, portraying our sport as stuffy, elitist, sexist and worse…. you need to visit a Fynn Valley – England’s Most Welcoming Golf Club. So much more than golf.

We look forward to meeting you.

Golf Beats the Winter Blues!

img_9650

There’s no better treatment for the condition than a game of golf or a session at the driving range on a winter day, so wrap up warm and give it a go.

Golf is the perfect tonic for combatting Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, commonly referred to as winter blues. Triggered by lack of daylight exposure, this condition affects up to one in 20 people in the UK with women three times more likely to suffer than men.

a) Fresh air and natural light.
Playing golf gets you outdoors in the fresh air for several hours at a time allowing you to get as much fresh air and natural light as possible which can help ease symptoms.

b) Spending time in nature can boost optimism and self-control.
A study from the University of Amsterdam, reported in the Daily Mail reveals that spending time in nature helps us slow down and consider our future more positively. Urban environments can trigger us to make unhealthy, impulsive decisions – such as overeating or avoiding exercise.

c) Exercise that boosts mood-enhancing chemicals in your brain.
Golf is a great way to take regular, moderate exercise or physical activity. The combination of walking and swinging your clubs gets you moving safely while boosting your brain’s natural feel good chemicals Spending time walking in the pleasant, green surroundings of a golf course can lift your mood and combat stress

d) It keeps you healthy.
According to NHS Choices research from the University of Essex shows that exercising outdoors boosts your physical and mental health more than going to indoor gyms – and burns up to 20 per cent more calories because your body needs extra energy to stay warm.

e) Friendship lifts your mood.
Golf nurtures friendship and social ties which can help you feel better. There’s no better sport for bringing people together. With plenty of time for conversation and fun – golf is the perfect way to make new friends and grow closer bonds with people you already know.

f) Aims and aspirations.
Feeling aimless can make you feel even lower during the winter months. Golf is a great way to set yourself small, healthy and positive targets that will keep you going through the winter and lift your mood. Deciding you will complete a round twice a month, improve your swing or commit to meeting up with a friend to play and have lunch once a fortnight will give you something to aim for and make you feel happier.

Need we say more? Contact us today to find out more about playing golf at Fynn Valley, we have options for all ages and abilities, suitable for young, old and in between, with options from half an hour to all day. Call 01473 785267 or email us: enquiries@fynn-valley.co.uk .
