Have your say

FOLLOWING the success of last year’s events, Bedlingtonshire Golf Club is to hold another free ‘taster’ day for ladies interested in taking up the game.

The day will take place on Wednesday, April 6, and will be run by club professional Marcus Webb, who is a fellow of the PGA as well as being a fully qualified PGA coach and resident coach of the Northumberland Golf Academy.

The day will commence at 10am with tuition from the club professional followed by refreshments in the clubhouse with the opportunity to view the facilities and meet current lady members who can answer any questions.

Clubs will be provided free on the day but any lady wishing to take part should bring their own if possible.

Any lady interested in joining can try the course with a free seven or nine holes in the company of a lady member.

Ladies captain Joan Atkinson said: “We have an active and friendly ladies section and we’re keen to attract new members.
