Get into golf has joined forces with BBC Sport’s Get Inspired scheme which encourages people to get active and discover new activities in their local area.
The campaign, designed to inspire adults across England to take up golf, will work alongside Get Inspired to extend its reach to millions of BBC viewers, listeners and web users across the country.
“We are delighted to work with Get Inspired. This will be a big boost to our campaign to encourage people of all backgrounds and abilities to take up golf,” said Richard Flint, England Golf’s Participation & Club Support Director.
Get into golf is run by the England Golf Partnership, through the national network of County Golf Partnerships and is supported by Sport England National Lottery funding. It offers affordable coaching for beginners and returners to golf, with all sessions run by PGA professionals. Equipment is provided so participants simply book through the Get into golf online booking system and turn up on the day in comfortable clothing.
Get Inspired is a BBC Sport initiative, set up to encourage and inspire the UK to get active and Get into golf is highlighted on its website and twitter feed with sessions across the UK searchable by postcode in their activity finder.
Richard Flint said: “With this increased awareness we are looking for more clubs to work with the Get into golf programme so that we can offer more opportunities across the country.”
