City centre coaching is free to beginners

10.00am 26th June 2003 - Management Topics

The English Golf Union and English Ladies‘ Golf Association have developed several initiatives to help get more people into golf, including Free Golf Coaching For Beginners.

Free Golf Coaching took place in Birmingham city centre between 29th and 31st May, with the support of Swingtech and local PGA professionals. Free golf lessons were offered to all, regardless of age, gender or background between 10am and 6pm. All participants were given information on a number of initiatives aimed at sustaining their interest in golf.

To follow up the success of the Birmingham campaign, the EGU and Swingtech will be driving into Market Square in Nottingham city centre between the 8th and 10th July.

Commenting on the forthcoming days, Richard Flint, EGU Golf Development Manager, said, “We hope that the city centre coaching days continue to be successful in reaching out into the community and making golf more accessible”.

As well as distributing information, the EGU has also offered golf facilities in Nottinghamshire the opportunity to come along and make people aware of any promotions and offers that are available for beginners.
