As the new season gets into full swing on Skipton Golf Club’s newly remodelled and much praised course, the club is again running its highly successful ‘Get into Golf’ initiative for budding golfers of all ages and abilities keen to learn the game, yet seeking both help and inspiration to do so.

The programme tees off on Thursday 2nd May at 6.30pm for ladies only or anyone at 7.45pm, and again on Sunday 5th May at 4.15pm for ladies, 5.30pm for anyone. It offers six one-hour group lessons for up to six people, the first 3 lessons at the nearby Whitehills Golf Driving Range, the following three at the club itself. The cost is just £30, with all equipment provided if required.

Last year, the club recruited 12 new members from the initiative. On offer following the lessons is a special three-month membership for £100 to include two half hour individual lessons.

“Members will also accompany beginners as mentors on the course as and when they are ready and more lessons can be booked with our pro. We will also provide further support via social golfing events,” explained a spokesperson.

Those interested are asked to contact Skipton Golf Club’s professional Peter Robinson on 01756 795657, or email getintogolf@skiptongolfclub.co.uk
