Free taster day at Boston Golf Club

BOSTONIANS are being encouraged to attend a free Golf Taster Day on Saturday.

Run by the England Golf Partnership (EGP), through its network of County Golf Partnerships, the national Get Into Golf campaign will help to achieve the EGP’s vision of making England the world’s leading golf nation by 2020.

The taster day aims to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to get in the swing and take up the game.

Qualified PGA coaches and volunteers from the Boston Golf Club will encourage newcomers and those who have played before to have a go at golf. Activities will include hitting golf balls into a large inflatable net and taking on a putting challenge.

Visitors will also be given information about coaching and membership offers available at the golf club, along with other projects organised by the Partnership.

Shona Dickson, the county development officer, said: “Golf is a game for everyone, and a game for life and I can promise a very warm welcome for all. We hope lots of people will have a go and take advantage of our follow-up opportunities.”
