Novice golfers get chance to go clubbing

NORTH West golfers are being urged to go clubbing to help find the next generation of players.

The scheme, launched by England Golf North West (Cheshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire and Rutland), calls on players to donate unwanted golf clubs which can then be used by newcomers to the sport.

Gareth Shaw, regional manager for England golf (North West), said: “One of the obstacles to people taking up golf that is often mentioned is the expense of having the right equipment.

“This scheme seeks to create a bank of golf clubs that can be used by people starting out in the sport, who do not need to spend money from their own pockets when trying golf for the first time.

“The project links in to the work going on in the counties Get into golf centres, which offer free taster sessions and discounted coaching lessons which means starting out in golf need not be as expensive as many people might think.

“Clubs across the counties are also offering flexible and affordable ways of becoming a member which again shows that getting involved in the sport, and enjoying its many health and social benefits, does not need to break the bank!”

For Further information and how to donate unwanted clubs in your county please contact your county officer:
