Get into golf – for free! Cambridgeshire Golf Week teed off today with a host of free activities to inspire more people to start playing the game.

PGA professional Craig Watson launched the week when he hosted the first free taster session at his club, Cambridge Meridian.

It followed a session at the Grafton Centre in Cambridge at the weekend, when PGA professional David Cox, from Cambridge Golf Driving Range, introduced shoppers to the game and offered them the chance to hit balls into an inflatable net.

A total of 12 clubs and driving ranges are joining in the golf week with activities ranging from open days and free tasters to free play on a par three course and even a coffee morning.

The clubs and ranges involved are: Abbotsley Golf Hotel, Brampton Park , Cambridge Golf Driving Range, Cambridge Meridian, Ely on Par, Girton, St Ives, 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 with PGA professionals.

Steve Peet, England Golf's regional development officer, added: “We're inviting everyone to join in and try the game. There are some fantastic free opportunities available and we look forward to welcoming hundreds of people during the week.”

Cambridgeshire Golf Week is part of the national Get into golf campaign and is part of a festival of golf across the Eastern counties. It 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.

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.”
