Lancashire and Cheshire clubs are backing National Golf Month in May with great value activities to support the drive to get more people playing the game.
They will offer a wide range of opportunities to attract beginners and returners to the sport and include open days, taster session, free coaching, beginner coaching courses, and some clubs courtesy of the course.
National Golf Month is a major campaign to afford beginners and 100,000 lapsed golfers opportunities to try the game.
Full details about the activities, as well as all the other opportunities in England, are available on the Get into Golf website www.getintogolf.org/map
