Get into golf fever will hit the Eastern counties next week when more than 70 clubs and driving ranges offer free taster sessions to welcome newcomers to the game.

The first East Region Golf Week, from April 22-28, is being run by County Golf Partnerships in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Free activities include tasters for families, juniors, men, women, seniors – and all-comers

There's also coffee mornings, playing opportunities and green fee offers to be had, as well as the chance to find out about low-cost follow-on coaching with PGA professionals.

It's part of the national Get into golf campaign which inspires people to take up the game. Full details of all golf week events are available by visiting www.getintogolf.org and clicking on the activity map.

Steve Peet, England Golf's regional development officer commented: “Last week's US Masters championship threw the spotlight on golf and now we're inviting everyone to join in and try the game.

“There are some fantastic free opportunities available and we look forward to welcoming thousands of people during the week.

“ Golf is a great game for everyone who enjoys fresh air, friendship and exercise and there's never been a better time to start.”
