Cambridgeshire Golf Week set to tee off

11th April 2013


Inspired by The Masters? Then get into golf when Cambridgeshire Golf Week tees off from April 22-28 with a host of free activities to inspire people to start playing the game.

David Cox, head PGA professional at Cambridge Golf Driving Range, takes a session in an inflatable net.
The event is part of the national Get into golf campaign and involves 12 golf clubs and ranges across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. They'll welcome new golfers with events such as open days and free tasters with PGA professionals, including special sessions for juniors, families and women-only.  

Special offers include free use of the par three course at Abbotsley Golf Hotel on April 25, half price green fees  at Girton Golf Club from April 26-28 and half price balls at Cambridge Golf Driving Range from 5pm on April 22.

Other opportunities include the chance to play two holes with the PGA professional at St Ives Golf Club. Meanwhile, Brampton Park Golf Club will hold a ladies' session and coffee morning on April 25.

Other clubs taking part during the week are: Cambridge Meridian, Ely on Par, Heydon Grange, Saffron Walden, The Golf Lounge, Nene Park and Ramsey.

Everyone taking part in taster activities will be given information about low-cost follow-on coaching opportunities.

The week is run by the Cambridgeshire Golf Partnership, which brings together the men's, women's and professional organisations to grow the game in the county. It follows the US Masters championship, when interest in golf is on the upswing, ahead of the English summer, and it is part of a festival of golf across the Eastern counties to support the national Get into golf campaign.

John Harvey, the county development officer, commented: “Golf is a great game for everyone who enjoys friendship, fresh air and exercise and this is the perfect time of year to start.

“We're very excited about Golf Week because Cambridgeshire has so much to offer the beginner golfer. Our golf clubs and driving ranges are welcoming, accessible and keen to encourage more people to play.

“Playing golf 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.”
