Get into the Swing launched in Nottinghamshire
April 5, 2012

Golf is a great game for people of all ages - and now it has never been easier to give the game a try in Nottinghamshire.

In 2012 the Get into the Swing Campaign is expanding to offer a wider variety of sessions. This year there is the opportunity to attend girls only and ladies only coaching sessions and of course, there is still the open coaching sessions welcoming men and ladies who are 16 and over.

Junior Girls coaching is £12 for 4 x 1 hour sessions.

Ladies coaching is £20 for 4 x 1 hour sessions.

Adult coaching sessions is £20 for 5 x 1 hour sessions.

The programme provides weekly one-hour group lessons delivered by high quality PGA Coaches. So far over 200 people across the County have taken part and feedback from participants has been excellent.

"The Get into the Swing sessions have been really great! The sessions are really laid back; you get some great coaching tips on technique. I have never played Golf before and have had no problem picking it up." Rachel Clerck, Beeston Fields Golf Club sessions.

'I attended the Get into the Swing at Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club, the coaches Craig and Claire were very friendly and accommodating.  They made me feel very welcome and helped progress my golf with the advice and coaching they both gave.' Sarah Williams

The courses welcomes complete beginners, so it's a fantastic chance to give a new sport a try. Golf Clubs across the County are running new sessions during from April onwards, with participating clubs in every Nottinghamshire district there should be no problem finding a club near you.

Matthew Bloor, County Development Officer for the Nottinghamshire County Golf Partnership, urged people to make the most of the benefits playing golf can bring.

"The Get into the Swing Campaign has been a great success, with golf clubs across the County providing a friendly and welcoming environment to learn the game." he said.

"PGA Golf Coaches ensure participants will always get great coaching and the sessions offer the chance to make new friends and enjoy an active social life, especially through golf club membership."

There are 18 clubs taking part in this year's scheme and the table below provides information on what is available at each club.
