Says Craig Thomas, county development officer for the Cheshire Golf Partnership: "These centres all offer a friendly and welcoming introduction to golf for anyone wanting to give the sport a go.

"The coaching, delivered by PGA professionals, will help develop the right skills to enable those starting out in the sport to go out and enjoy themselves on the course.

"Golf is a sport that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities and a regular round of golf can help contribute to a healthier lifestyle.

"These courses will encourage new faces into the sport and onwards into potential club membership, which brings with it the benefits of an active social life and both friendly and competitive golf."

Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire new golfers run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of County Golf Partnerships, which work to grow the game.

Get into golf opportunities include free or low-cost beginner courses with PGA professionals. They are a fun and sociable way to start golf and a great way to make new friends.

Discounted lessons can cost as little as £25 for a five-week course.
