During the ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters which was held last week in glorious sunshine at the beautiful Buckinghamshire Golf Club over 120 free lessons were supplied by coaches and professionals from the Berks, Bucks & Oxfordshire Golf Partnership in the PING area. PING kindly sponsored the area and provided equipment for all levels and abilities to have a try.
Sam Round (County Development Officer) from BB&O Golf Partnership commented: “It has been a fantastic opportunity for the BB&O Golf Partnership to attend the ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters at The Buckinghamshire. We have been able to raise the awareness of our Get into Golf programme, which aims to encourage new participants into the game of golf, as well as encouraging people to experience good quality coaching from our PGA professionals. We have also seen absolute beginners give golf a go and take away information on where they can continue to learn the game, so we feel the whole event has been a great success.
"The enthusiasm for the activity we provided was very encouraging, with lessons being fully booked on two of the days and has meant we can make positive steps to continuing the programme next year. The Partnership is very grateful to PING for providing their support of the event and the participants were equally delighted to use such high quality equipment in their lessons.”
