The free open days are being organised by Skipton Golf Club director Sarah Coy, who is responsible for promotions. The men’s open day takes place on Sunday, July 31, to be followed by a ladies’ open day on Monday, August 15. Sarah said: “While work on the town’s flood alleviation scheme has had a limited effect on our visitor numbers, we remain keen to spread the word that the course is fully open and in play and will continue to be so as development and improvement work continues. “We decided to stage two free open days in anticipation that people will want to come and play, and to view and learn at first hand exactly what is going on around the course - without having to pay for the privilege!” Sarah also reports that the club is introducing a three-month beginners’ trial membership for those new to golf at a cost [...]
