CROSLAND HEATH GC will stage an inaugural family open day on April 5 to help encourage newcomers to the game.

Sceretary Lindsay Salvini said: "People of all ages are welcome to the day, whether they have never played golf before or are a budding Rory McIlroy.

"There will be lots for them to do and our golf club is friendly, sociable and currently looking for new members."

Along with a chance to try golf, receive coaching and find out about follow-on opportunities, Crosland Heath have planned lots of other activities to do on the day, including a four-hole competition for a golfer and non-golfer team, crazy putting and a driving challenge.

Indoor activities will include table tennis and pool, and there will be a kids corner.

The club currently have members aged from four to 84 and Darren Holroyd, who joined the club last year with his son, said: ‘It has been my first year as a member and I am very impressed overall. The junior section is nothing short of excellent."

Salvini continued: "The game of golf has great health benefits and just one round will easily achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week recommended by the NHS to stay healthy.

"People might also be surprised to hear that playing an 18-hole game of golf uses at least 900 calories.

"Alongside our family open day, we are also offering a series of memberships designed as a taster to full membership. These include Academy Membership (three months including tuition and unlimited use of Crosland Heath's practice facilities) and Twilight Membership (a lifestyle category running from March-October, six days per week from 3.30pm onwards).

"Our club is also an England Golf 'Get into Golf' partner and offers a selection of group coaching opportunities for just £5 per week."
