An ‘easy and affordable’ scheme to teach golf to beginners has been launched across three golf clubs in Sheffield and one in Chesterfield.

For £99 golfers can buy three half-hour one-to-one lessons with a PGA professional that can be redeemed at any of the four venues over a three-month period.

The scheme, called goGOLF, has been set up by charity Sheffield City Trust (SCT) and is being run at Sheffield’s Beauchief, Birley Wood and Tinsley Park golf clubs, as well as Tapton Park GC in Chesterfield.

It aims to teach the basics of golf – from grip and posture to swing and putting – during the three 30-minute golf lessons with one of the trust’s PGA-qualified coaches.

Participants can then practice their skills with three months access to Birley Wood, Tinsley Park, Beauchief and Tapton Park after 1pm. There is also unlimited access to the nine-hole Academy Course at Tapton Park.

Andy Carnall, Sheffield City Trust golf manager, said: “It’ll be fantastic for the region if we can get more people playing golf.

“We hope to see goGOLF encourage people to follow in the footsteps of Birley Wood graduate, Danny Willett, who made his Masters debut at Augusta recently.

“With access to our courses on offer for those taking part in the goGOLF scheme, now is the perfect opportunity to take up the sport.”

“goGOLF is an exciting initiative, opening up the wonderful world of golf to all,” added an SCT spokesman.

“We have come up with a fantastic value package providing something for all abilities. Whether you’re new to golf, had a go, or are reasonably confident and want to get back into this fantastic sport, this is the perfect place to start. Our goGOLF learn to play package is the perfect environment when learning the ropes or returning to the game.”

SCT’s charitable objective is to improve people’s health and wellbeing by providing facilities for sport and leisure activities.
