The third Norfolk Golf Week will tee off in April to inspire more people to start playing the game.

This year's event – from April 22-28 – involves 15 golf clubs and driving ranges and will offer free tasters to beginners and returners. These include sessions for couples, families and the over-60s as well as those for women-only and men-only.

After each session, participants will be invited to the clubhouse for refreshments and to meet existing club members and hear about follow-on coaching opportunities. These include six-week courses of group lessons with PGA professionals from as little as £25 per person.

Other offers include: ‘buy one get one free' on range balls at Norfolk Premier Golf at Blofield during the week and, for those with some previous experience, a £5 green fee for nine holes at the Links Country Park Golf Club at West Runton on the weekend of 27-28 April.

The week is run by the Norfolk 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.

Karen Young, 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 Norfolk has so much to offer the beginner golfer. Our golf clubs and driving ranges are welcoming and accessible and they are working hard to encourage more people to play.

“Taster sessions in our previous Golf Weeks were very popular and we'd like lots more people to come along next month and give golf a go – there's never been a better time or place to learn.”
