Cornwall Clubs Back National Golf Month

National Golf Month

Golf clubs, driving ranges and short courses across Cornwall are backing National Golf Month with great value activities to support the drive to get more people playing the game.

National Golf Month will be held across the UK in May and Cornwall golf clubs will offer a wide range of opportunities to attract beginners and returners to the sport. They include Get into Golf Open Days, structured weekly group coaching sessions, Learn to play golf in a day initiatives, 'Tee it Up' playing events and membership offers throughout May.

National Golf Month is a major campaign to offer beginners and 100,000 lapsed golfers opportunities to try the game. It's being driven by the Bauer Media Group and the British Golf Industry Association (BGIA) and is supported by England Golf through the Get into golf campaign, which is run by the national network of County Golf Partnerships.

Full details about Cornwall's activities, as well as all the other opportunities across  England, are available on the Get into golf website www.getintogolf.org/cornwall

Get into golf is a campaign which aims to inspire more adults in England to take up the sport, with low-cost structured coaching with PGA professionals.

Simon Wood the Cornwall County Development Officer, said: "We're very excited about National Golf Month event because Cornwall has so much to offer beginners and returners to golf. There are over 35 golf clubs, driving ranges and pitch and putts involved in this project all over the county and all of the participating clubs are passionate about encouraging people to get into golf.

"Golf is a great game for everyone who enjoys friendship, fresh air and exercise. It can bring impressive health and wellbeing benefits and it's the perfect sport for bringing people together. There's never been a better time to start."
