For those beginners who are bitten by the golfing bug, Tynemouth Golf Club is providing further opportunities to try the sport with Get Into Golf sessions.

They start on March 5 and April 6, last five weeks and cost £25, with expert coaching provided by club professional John McKenna.

Paul said: “After that you’ll probably know whether you want to stick with it so we’ve created an academy for people of all ages, which provides a stepping stone for those who want to keep playing and learning and think about becoming members.

“Our aim is to do all we can to introduce the sport we love to as many people as possible.”
