5th December 2012


CHRISTMAS may be coming - but it is still a good time to give golf a go in Staffordshire.

Taster sessions and discounted coaching are on offer at golf clubs across the county as part of the national campaign to encourage more people to take up the sport.

The Chase Golf, Health Club & Spa , near Cannock , has a wide range of activities to suit beginners of all ages - and all for free.

Free coaching sessions are being offered by PGA professionals Tom Cheetham and Katrina Holford to men, juniors and ladies, with junior classes being open to those as young as four years plus.

The junior sessions are on Saturday, December 15 (6pm-7pm) and Saturday, January 19 (2pm-3pm).

This summer has seen a number of successful schemes at The Chase Golf Academy, including Junior Passport and Go 4 Green for ladies.

The Academy offers a number of courses for young golfers with further details available by visiting or calling 017857 12888.

Facilities include a floodlit driving range, private teaching bay, indoor video analysis, large putting green, short game area and full 18-hole course.

Says Sean Hammill, county development officer for the Staffordshire County Golf Partnership: "These schemes give anyone interested in trying golf the ideal opportunity to give it a go alongside people in a similar situation.

"It is a sport that offers a healthier lifestyle and, with the potential for club membership in the future, an enjoyable social life, too.

"And with people looking to shed a few of those extra Christmas pounds in the new year, golf offers a great way to look after your well-being while making new friends."

Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire new golfers run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of County Golf Partnerships, which work to grow the game.

Get into golf opportunities include free or low-cost beginner courses with PGA professionals. They are a fun and sociable way to start golf - and a great way to make new friends.
