New scheme for female golfers in Cheshire
December 9, 2011

It's ladies first for a new scheme being run by Alvaston Hall Golf Club.

The Cheshire club's PGA qualified professional Mark Taylor is running a series of free group lessons for women.

They will take place at the club, near Nantwich, both before and after Christmas and will help anyone looking to take up the sport or develop their skills.

They form part of a county-wide drive to encourage more people to take up golf, and particularly women.

"It can be intimidating for a women or girl to approach a club on their own to start playing golf," says Craig Thomas, county development officer for the Cheshire County Golf Partnership, "but the Alvaston Hall sessions provide a great place to join in with groups of people who are in a similar position.

"The group sessions are a fun introduction to the sport and the chance to enjoy the social and health benefits of the sport."

Adds Mark Taylor: "The practice facilities and course at Alvaston Hall make it an ideal place for someone to enjoy an introduction to the sport. It is a very friendly place and we are keen to encourage more girls and women into golf."

Further details are available from Mark Taylor be emailing or ringing the club on 01270 628 473.

The Cheshire County Golf Partnership is a collaboration of the major stakeholders in golf, including the English Golf Union, The English Women's Golf Association, the PGA, the Golf Foundation and Sport England.

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