Support the Next Generation of Golfers by Donating Unwanted Clubs
Golfers across Cheshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire are being urged by England Golf North West to donate unwated golf clubs that can then be used by newcomers to the game, inspiring the next generation of players.
Says Gareth Shaw, Regional Manager for England golf (North West): “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:

Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire new golfers run by the England Golf through its network of County Club Support Officers, which work to grow the game.
Get into golf opportunities include free or 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.
Discounted lessons can cost as little as £25 for a five-week course.
