Free lessons on offer at Scottish golf show

7.55am 4th March 2008 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Visitors to this year’s Scottish Golf Show will be able to get free on-the-spot lessons with a Scottish PGA professional.

The announcement comes as yet another major boost to organisers of the Scottish Golf Show, which will be held at the Royal Highland Centre, near Ingliston, Edinburgh, on 4thj – 6th April.

Six Scottish PGA professionals will be operating six special driving range booths at the show, where they will give lessons to visitors. Each lesson is free of charge, courtesy of the Scottish Golf Show, and will last between ten and 15 minutes.

Over the course of the three-day show in Edinburgh, it is estimated that over 600 lessons will be given by fully-qualified PGA professionals, completely free of charge. To take advantage of this fantastic opportunity, all visitors must pre-book their lesson at the official PGA desk at the show.

Friday show visitors are being offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with the Ryder Cup. The famous gold cup will be making an appearance and golfers are being urged to come along on that day and have their photo taken with the iconic trophy.

Show director Tom Lovering commented, “I am absolutely delighted that this year’s Scottish Golf Show will be graced by the presence of the Ryder Cup, one of the world’s most iconic and most instantly-recognisable trophies.

“I would strongly urge all visitors who have yet to decide which day they intend to come to the show to come along on the opening day – Friday, 4th April – and have their photograph taken for free with this internationally-renowned and prestigious sporting prize. It is truly a one-day-only, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you just won’t want to miss.”
