Spring into Spring with Cheshire Get into Golf Sessions
More clubs in Cheshire have announced plans to hold special Get into golf sessions as part of the nationwide campaign to help people of all ages and abilities into a sport that offers both health and social benefits.
Five-week group coaching sessions are available across the county for the bargain price of just £25, with all equipment provided, meaning it does not have to cost a lot to give golf a go.
High Legh GC, on Warrington Road, is offering ladies coaching on Tuesdays (10am-11am) from April 1 and Sundays (10am-11am) from April 6. Men’s coaching is available on Sundays (11am-12noon) from April 6.
Ladies coaching is also available at Chester Golf Centre, in Chester Road, Bretton, (Fridays, 10am-11am) from April 4 and Saturdays (10am-11am) from April 5. Men’s coaching starts on Saturday April 5 (11am-12noon).

Says Craig Thomas, county development officer for the Cheshire Golf Partnership: "With the approach of the better weather and lighter nights, there has never been a better time to give a new sport a try or return to one you may have played when younger.
“The Get into golf programme offers an ideal introduction to the skills needed to play a game that offers many health and social benefits.
“The group coaching sessions offer an immediate chance to make new friends and learn alongside people of a similar ability, at a venue near you, without having to fork out a lot of money.”
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.
