Leeds Golf Centre, one of Yorkshire’s leading golfing facilities, is offering free golf lessons throughout February after signing up to England Golf’s ‘Get Into Golf’ program.
The initiative, set up by the England Golf Partnership, aims to make England the world’s leading golf nation by 2020. The free coaching sessions are available for mixed groups, women-only and families and are run by fully qualified PGA professionals from Leeds Golf Centre’s Leadbetter-trained staff. They offer a basic introduction to one of the nation’s favourite past times and provide information about follow-on coaching programs and club membership opportunities.
Andy Herridge, Head Professional at Leeds Golf Centre, said: “After learning about this campaign, we were immediately impressed with the idea and we’re delighted to provide our services and support ‘Get Into Golf’ at Leeds Golf Centre.
“We’re offering a series of sessions throughout most dates in February for those who either want to get back involved in the sport or are playing the game for the first time. Our facilities are an ideal environment to learn the game of golf. With our relaxed and friendly atmosphere, advanced golf teaching services, and new for 2015, our floodlit short-game and driving range areas, the home of modern golf is the perfect setting for any type of golfer.”
Tom Freeland, Yorkshire Golf’s Development Officer, added: “It’s fantastic to have Leeds Golf Centre on board, so a big thanks to Andy and the team for signing up to ‘Get Into Golf’. We’re working with England Golf to grow the numbers of participants in Yorkshire and with programs such as this, we’re sure we’ll see a surge of new golfers in our county.”
