Mens ‘Get Into Golf’

Mens ‘Get Into Golf’

Newcastle West Golf Club in conjunction with the Confederation of Golf in Ireland are running an initiative to introduce Men to golf.

The beginners programme consists of 3 weeks of group lessons with PGA professionals Ian Colleran and Darragh Morrissey and a further 3 weeks on course activities accompanied by members of the club which includes:

• Short game challenges
• 3/5/9 hole fun scrambles

The sessions will last no more than 1.5 hours per week, which means there is no reason for Men to miss out on the fun!

This is a great opportunity for Men of all ages to give golf a try through a selection of fun activities.

Lessons will begin on Tuesday 2nd May 

Please pass on this information to any man you feel may be interested.
