The campaign to help more people Get into golf in Staffordshire is tailor-made for anyone wanting to give the sport a try. Free taster sessions or discounted coaching is widely available across the county along with a course to suit people of all ages and abilities.
Now the Staffordshire County Golf Partnership – which helps drive golf development in the area – has teamed up with clothing company Royal & Awesome to show that there is a fun side to the sport, too.
Royal & Awesome make bright, fun, attention-grabbing golf apparel which combines high quality materials with bold prints and designs.
Staffordshire CGP Development Officer Gareth Shaw says: “I am a strong believer in networking and working with companies who have vision and drive to make this great sport even greater, whether that be raising the profile through clothing or through entry level coaching. It is all about collaboration and working as one.
“The partnership between Staffordshire County Golf Partnership and Royal & Awesome is a perfect match, with both groups wanting to increase participation but also bring the fun element to the game and breakdown stereotypes that have been instilled for generations. Change is occurring with Staffordshire CGP breaking down barriers each day to raise awareness and bring more people into the sport.”
Charlie Collier, Assistant Brand Manager for Royal & Awesome, states: “The Staffordshire County Golf Partnership are doing a great job at encouraging more people to get into golf and if Royal & Awesome can bring that extra element of fun and enjoyment to the game we believe it can only lead to greater participation.”
