Still time to get into golf


CHRISTMAS may be coming, but there are still plenty of opportunities to give golf a go in Cheshire.The longer hours of dark should not stop anyone trying a new hobby as clubs across the county are still offering the chance to get involved with a sport which brings many health and social benefits.

Hazel Grove Golf Club, near Stockport, is running a series of Get into golf sessions for adult beginners. The programme starts on December 6. Further details from the club’s PGA professional James Rowlands on 07841 713100 or the club on 0161 483 7272.

Craig Thomas, development officer for the Cheshire County Golf Partnership, said: “The weather may have taken a turn for the worse after the departure of summer, but it is still a great time of year to get out and try something new which will stand you in good stead for the years ahead.

“Golf is a great sport that can be enjoyed with friends or family and it is never too late or early to give it a go.

“So why not get out of the house this winter and see what Cheshire’s clubs have to offer with the chance to enjoy expert tuition for very little cost.”

Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire adults to take up the game and is run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of County Golf Partnerships, supported by Sport England and National Lottery funding.

Get into golf opportunities include FREE taster session and low-cost beginner courses with PGA professionals. They are a fun and sociable way to start golf – and a great way to make new friends.
