Nottinghamshire announces Get into Golf programme of courses

By: Golf Shake | Tue 06 May 2014 | Comments

There has never been a better time to get involved in golf in Nottinghamshire, with clubs and PGA Professionals supporting a major drive to encourage new players.

The county’s ground-breaking ‘Get into Golf Pathway’ is available at clubs across Nottinghamshire.

The Pathway is a flexible and inexpensive way to get into the game, or help improve your skills and enjoyment of the sport if you have played before.

Relaxed, sociable group coaching led by PGA Professionals is available at clubs across Nottinghamshire, who are also supporting the National Golf Month campaign which is running throughout May.

So whether you are a complete beginner, are returning to the game, or would like to try a trial membership package, there is a stage of the pathway to suit you.

Richard Brown, England Golf Regional Development Officer said: “Nottinghamshire has a great golfing tradition and can boast some of the most pro-active and friendly clubs in the region, where you will be made to feel welcome and can learn the game with people of a similar ability. The health and social benefits associated with golf are hard to beat.’

The clubs taking part include:

  • (In Rushcliffe):  The Nottinghamshire, Edwalton, Radcliffe-On-Trent, Ruddington Grange
  • (In Newark & Sherwood):  Newark, Norwood Park, Rufford Park, Southwell
  • (In Broxtowe): Chilwell Manor, Trent Lock, Beeston Fields
  • (In Nottingham City): Bulwell Forest, Wollaton, Riverside
  • (In Gedling): Mapperley
  • (In Bassetlaw): Serlby Park, Worksop

A five-week Get into the Swing course is just £25 for weekly one-hour group coaching sessions.

Sarah Williams, a Get into golf participant, recommends taking advantage of the coaching on offer.

She says:  “I joined the Get into golf programme at my local club and was made to feel very welcome. All the equipment was provided free of charge and sessions were fun and relaxed. I have made some great new friends and we are now playing golf on regular basis.”

All the information on the programme is available on the Nottinghamshire County Golf Partnership website - www.nottinghamshiregolfpartnership.co.uk - under Get into Golf Pathway.
Or you can contact county development officer Matt Bloor on 0115 977 2268 or email [email protected]

Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire new golfers run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of County Golf Partnerships, 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.
