Golf – a Game for All Ages

May 27th, 2016

I am delighted to join in the congratulations to all those who were presented with Golf Foundation Presidents’ Awards at Wentworth on Wednesday. Today we also carry a story that reminds us that Golf is a Game for All Ages. Throughout June, the three Topgolf centres near London will offer free coaching lessons from on-site PGA coaches for Over 55s.

It’s never too late to get into golf, a game that can be picked up by anyone at any time. And judging from the crowds at Wentworth in these first two days of the BMW PGA Championship, the fan base includes all generations as well. It’s going to be a great weekend!
