MORECAMBE Golf Club has won a national award for its efforts to grow the game and marked the achievement in typical style with a festival for local schools.

It has been presented with the GolfMark award, an official seal of approval for clubs which successfully work to develop the game by attracting new members and encouraging existing ones to play more; using practical business planning to develop the club; offering coaching and playing opportunities for all golfers; and ensuring safeguarding policies are in place

The club celebrated its centenary in 2005 and prides itself on maintaining the traditions of the sport while offering the next generation of players a warm and friendly welcome.

It has been at its present home since 1923, with the Dr Alister MacKenzie designed course offering superb views over the Morecambe Bay and to the Lakeland fells beyond.

The award was presented to the club during a schools tri-golf festival event by England Golf’s Lancashire Golf Club Support officer Adam  McAlister.

Morecambe’s general manager Stuart Buckley said: “”We are one of only a select amount of golf clubs in Lancashire to have received this award and it is a testament to our team of PGA professional coaches and volunteers at the club that put in hours of work to achieve what we have done.”
