People in Scunthorpe are being encouraged to attend a free Golf Taster session on Saturday 14th July.

The taster session aims to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to get in the swing and take up the game.Run by the England Golf Partnership (EGP) through its network of County Golf Partnerships, the national Get Into Golf campaign will help to achieve the EGP’s vision of making England the world’s leading golf nation by 2020.

Qualified PGA coaches and volunteers from the Holme Hall Golf Club will encourage newcomers, and those who have played before, to have a go at golf. Activities will include hitting a large target in a net and taking on a putting challenge.

Visitors will also be given information about coaching and membership offers available at the golf club, along with other projects organised by the Partnership.

Shona Dickson, the County Development Officer, said: “Golf is a game for everyone and a game for life and I can promise a very warm welcome for all. We hope lots of people will have a go and take advantage of our follow-up opportunities.”

The taster session will take place at Holme Hall Golf Club, Holme Lane, Bottesford, Scunthorpe, DN16 3RF, from 2pm – 4pm.
