Wallsend Golf Club taster day session

A SPECIAL golf taster session is being held in Northumberland aimed at people with a disability.

Centurion Park Golf Club, in Wallsend, is staging the event on April 16 (11am to 2pm).

The free taster day will be delivered by PGA professional Craig Fetherston.

“Golf is a sport that can be played by all ages and abilities,” says Lisa Ferrie, county development officer for the Northumberland County Golf Partnership.

“This taster session is also for carers and friends who would like to give golf a go and to find out what a fun activity it can be.

“The great thing about golf is that players with different levels of ability, ages or health can compete on a level playing field due to the rules and scoring and enjoy the social side of the sport together, too.”

Anyone interested in taking part should e-mail getintogolf@yahoo.com to book a place and to find out more information.

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 Northumberland the county partnership is supported by the Northumberland Union of Golf Clubs, the Northumberland Ladies County Golf Association, the Northumberland Junior Golfing Association and the Professional Golfers’ Association.
