Club’s award for getting more people into golf

Bedlingtonshire Golf Club has been rewarded for introducing more people to the sport.

The club has been presented with a ‘Get into Golf Centre of the Year 2013-14’ by Northumberland Golf Partnership, supported by England Golf.

The award recognises that Bedlingtonshire has excelled in introducing new people to golf and actively engaging participants in follow-on opportunities to encourage continued regular participation in the game.

Presenting the award Jason Budd, county development officer, said that Bedlingtonshire had shown an inclusive approach to people just starting and had striven to retain member numbers.

At the same award ceremony, Bedlingtonshire junior member Will Herron was presented with ‘County Academy Best Male 2013-14’.

Bedlingtonshire Golf Club offers coaching opportunities for all ages and levels of ability and is particularly interested in attracting new participants with structured ‘Get into Golf’ taster sessions and coaching.
