Whitley Bay Golf Club held its first taster day of the season on Saturday.
Club professional David Twizell introduced the new golfers to the basics of the game.
But his lesson was interrupted and there was a special treat for the new golfers when three deer made an appearance on the fairway.
Whitley Bay Golf club is offering opportunities for new players to get into the game.
David is running beginners lessons for the next four Saturdays. This will be followed by special membership opportunities for new players wanting to play more.
For information on beginners programmes, either telephone David on (0191) 252 0180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
