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."

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.
