Following unprecedented success last year, the public is being invited to join in a repeat free fun day to explore the delights of golf.

The summer afternoon Bank Holiday Monday activity is being staged at Newton Green Golf Club on August 27.

Double the projected attendance was achieved when the idea was first staged last year, and this year the club will be taking the opportunity to launch a new range of flexible memberships

Children and adults, with or without any skills in the sport, will be given the chance to taste golf in various easy formats. These will include nine holes of golf, a six-hole par three event, nine-hole target golf with prizes, plus a range of fun putting and chipping.

The club’s coaches will also be present to give free tuition to individuals or small groups, and food and drink will be available.

Newton Green’s creative ideas for encouraging people to get into golf are well known, with its Davey and Intermediate memberships now contributing to a sizeable proportion of the membership.

Manager Ben Tawell commented: “In recent times golf has woken up to realise flexibility is the secret to allow young and old the opportunity to enjoy an activity which offers fun and new friendships.

“A user-friendly opportunity to enjoy golf the relaxed way is just what is needed to wind down the August Bank Holiday break. We are looking to build on the great success this event achieved a year ago.”
