Go4Green initiative in Staffordshire
June 14, 2011

Woolstanton Golf Club is serving up a second round of golf lessons for beginners.

The club near Newcastle under Lyne signed up for a major campaign aimed at increasing participation in the sport across Staffordshire.

The Go4Green project makes it easier than ever for adults to start playing golf - and includes the fantastic offer of FIVE introductory lessons with a qualified PGA coach at the bargain price of just £25.

Those taking part do not even need their own golf clubs.

Such was the enthusiastic response the club received to its first sessions, it is now holding a second run of lessons starting on June 16.

Anyone interested in signing up should contact club professional Nigel Onions on 01782 or by e-mail at

The club is busy looking for new recruits and is putting out leaflets promoting the event in local libraries, sports centres and newsagents.

Clubs across the county are backing the scheme which is being organised by the Staffordshire County Golf Partnership.

"Anybody who would like to give golf a go should sign up for the Go 4 Green sessions," says County Golf Development Officer Sean Hammill.

"Lessons will be provided by PGA qualified professionals and all equipment will be provided.

"The combination of quality coaching delivered by qualified professionals, the low-cost price and the fact that there is no need to pay out for equipment makes this the ideal option for someone considering taking up golf."

The other clubs taking part include Barlaston Golf Club, Branston Golf and Country Club, Brocton Hall GC, Drayton Park GC, Ingestre Park GC, Izaak Walton GC, Keele Driving Range, Leek GC, Lichfield Golf and Country Club, Penn GC, Perton Park GC, The Manor GC, near Uttoxeter, The 3 Hammers Golf Complex, The Range at Essington, Trentham GC, South Staffs GC and Uttoxeter GC.

The Go4Green initiative is aimed at increasing the number of adult players coming into the sport and encouraging them to take up membership at their local golf club.

The Go 4 Green campaign is one of a number of initiatives undertaken by The Staffordshire Golf Partnership, which is a collaboration of a number of stakeholders in the sport including the English Golf Union, The English Women's Golf Association, the PGA, the Golf Foundation and Sport England.

In Staffordshire the partnership is supported by the Staffordshire Ladies County Golf Association, the Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs and the Staffordshire PGA.
