Free golf coaching in Staffordshire
January 23, 2012

It's women and children first in a new scheme aimed at making it even easier to give golf a go in Staffordshire.

The Chase Golf Health Club & Spa, based in Penkridge, is backing the drive by the Staffordshire County Golf Partnership to encourage more people into the sport.

The club, which is just six miles from the centre of Stafford, is holding a series of events aimed at would-be golfers.

They are running a Ladies Go 4 Green programme, starting January 29 at 2.30pm, for beginners while a course for the Girls starts on February 9 (1.00pm).

Free coaching sessions for all children under 16 are also held at the club, starting from February 1 (4.30pm-5.30pm) and February 3 (4.30pm-5.30pm).

The coaching sessions are organised by qualified PGA professionals and provide an enjoyable introduction to the range of skills needed out on the golf course. The sessions are free and equipment is provided.

Further information is available from the club's PGA professionals Katrina Holford and Tom Cheetham on 01785 712 888.

The club has received its GolfMark award - which is a national seal of approval for child-friendly and beginner facilities which have shown they have the right duty of care policies in place alongside their coaching structure.

Sean Hammill, county development officer for the Staffordshire CGP, says: "These courses are an ideal way to get started. If your new year resolution has been to try something new in 2012 then these sessions would suit you to a tee.

"Golf offers a healthy and sociable activity while the chance for the ladies and girls to start out with a group of people in a similar situation makes it much more fun and far less daunting to get involved at a golf club."

The England Golf Partnership is a collaboration of a number of stakeholders in the sport including England Golf - the organisation formed by the merger of the English Golf Union and 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.
