WITH the excitement of Adam Scott’s dramatic win at the Masters still fresh in the mind and the summer nearing full swing, Redbourn Golf Club is offering novices the chance to learn the game of golf.

Redbourn GC, on the outskirts of Harpenden, is one of only nine BGL Golf Clubs in the country, running Learn Golf, a teaching programme aimed at newcomers to the sport.

These free group golf lessons, run by fully qualified PGA Professionals offer a relaxed environment to learn the basics and have fun. With a maximum of eight golfers per lesson, BGL guarantee each participant will receive quality tuition and attention from a professional.

Gavin Bunker, Redbourn GC’s sales and marketing manager, said: “Golf is a fantastic game that anyone of any level can take part in. It is a great way to get some exercise and allows you to meet new people.

“It is not only a physical but mental test. Golf is a challenging but enjoyable sport and lessons can heavily improve your initial performance and really kick-start your uptake of the game.

“We have a number of fully qualified PGA professionals at Redbourn and one of the best practice facilities in the area boasting a putting green, chipping green, par-3 course, 18 hole course and a flood-lit driving range.”

The course involves two, one hour sessions as well as free use of clubs and balls on the driving range.
