BRACKEN Ghyll Golf Club in Addingham is offering a ‘Get into Golf’ programme specifically for women.

There will be two free taster sessions on Tuesday, April 30 at 2pm and Tuesday, May 7 at 6pm where ladies can try their hand at the game with all equipment provided.

For those who would like to pursue the opportunity, there will be a further six week programme of group golf lessons covering each aspect of the game with clubs provided.

Participants will have access to all practice facilities and the clubhouse as well as being able to play on the course at non peak times for three months all for only £99.

A club spokesperson said: “The British Journal of Sports Medicine has published a study suggesting that people who play golf live longer than those who do not. It keeps the mind alert and can provide an excellent social scene. Here is the golden opportunity for local ladies to test this theory for themselves!”
