24th November 2012


Cold Ashby Golf Club is helping more people to GET INTO GOLF!!

Cold Ashby Golf Club near Northampton is offering free golf coaching taster sessions for adult beginners on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm until 7.30pm to help them to GET INTO GOLF.

There are also sessions on Sunday mornings and ladies coffee mornings incorporating an introduction to golf and golf competitions.

They are open to beginners/non members and provide an ideal opportunity for adults to experience the game of golf.  To find out further information on the above sessions and to book a lesson with a qualified PGA Coach please telephone Cold Ashby Golf Club on 01604 740099

The above activities are offered as part of England Golf's Club Coaching Grant scheme, which provides GolfMark (incorporating Clubmark) facilities with funding to support recruitment and retention activities for adults, young people and families.  GolfMark is England Golf's national scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities.  For further details visit http://www.golfmark.org/

Details of all venues offering coaching activities as part of the Club Coaching Grant scheme will be promoted on the Get into Golf website at http://www.getintogolf.org/

The NorthamptonshireCounty Golf Partnership is also helping to develop golf within the county by offering sessions to increase participation and providing support to golf clubs, players, coaches and volunteers.  See http://www.northamptonshiregolf.org.uk/ for more information.

Many golf clubs have been able to offer golf taster sessions and activities for a number of years through the support of England Golf and have introduced thousands of beginners to golf and golf clubs.  In the 2011/2012 scheme, over 22,000 participants (69% adults and 31% juniors) attended one of the golf clubs offering activities as part of this scheme.  49% of the adults and 61% of the juniors went on to take further coaching.

The Club Coaching Grant scheme is one of several initiatives jointly provided by England Golf via the England Golf Partnership's 'Whole Sport Plan' for golf and is an integral part of England Golf's vision to 'Grow the Game'.
