Free club on offer in Cheshire Go4Green scheme
July 25, 2011

Golf clubs across Cheshire are backing a new four-pronged campaign aimed at bringing more people into the sport.

Under the banner of Go4Green, the project will offer a wide range of routes into golf.

All those taking part in one of the Go4Green schemes that will run throughout the summer will receive a free golf club courtesy of leading equipment manufacturers Wilson.

The schemes are being delivered under the umbrella of the Cheshire County Golf Partnership and include:

Golf4Women - the chance to learn in a ladies-only group.

Golf4Couples - mixed group coaching sessions

Golf4All - aimed at beginners of all abilities from the age of 18 up.

Fit4Golf - aimed those who want a healthier lifestyle

All the schemes offer five one-hour group coaching sessions with a qualified PGA professional at the bargain price of just £20 per person.

The first clubs to sign up for the scheme are Tytherington, Mere, Helsby, Adlington, Leasowe, Upton by Chester, Hartford, Bromborough, Mottram Hall and Moreton Hills driving range on Wirral.

Craig Thomas, county development officer for the Cheshire County Golf Partnership, said: "We hope that anyone interested in taking up golf will find something to appeal to them from one of the courses.

"The benefits of playing golf and becoming involved in a golf club include the sporting challenge, the chance to meet like-minded people in an enjoyable social atmosphere and the obvious health benefits of regular exercise in the fresh air.

"Each of the schemes offers something different.

"Golf4Women gives ladies the chance to try golf alongside other ladies in the same position as newcomers to the sport, so should be less intimidating than joining a club on your own.

"Couples4Golf offers the chance to start something new together, while Golf4All caters for those over the age of 18 of all abilities who can start out with other beginners so you can share your experiences.

"A round of golf equates to 12,000 steps or a 45 minute workout so is ideal for anyone looking to become more active. Fit4Golf will show the many benefits of the sport - it helps improve flexibility, strength and overall fitness as well as helping reduce stress levels, strengthen mental health while relaxing outdoors and socialising with friends.

"These schemes support the overall aim of making golf as accessible as possible to people of all ages and abilities"
