Sefton Council is now offering under-16s free junior golf memberships which gives them a year’s no-cost play at its Bootle and Southport courses.
To qualify for the memberships, which are worth £80, under-16s need to register at the Bootle Golf Club or Southport Golf Links shops. They need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must provide proof of age.
Their free membership means that for the next 12 months they can then book a tee time and play as normal and it will cost them nothing.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Worth £80 each, these memberships providing under-16s with free golf at our Bootle and Southport courses, are excellent value. Golf is a sport that requires regular practise and training and the ability to play for free at any time might help one of our local young people emerge as the next Tommy Fleetwood.”
