Barrow Golf Club in Barrow-in-Furness is offering free taster sessions for adults from 9am to 10am and 10am to 11am on the 16th, 23rd and 30th June, 7th and 14th July to help them to GET INTO GOLF. 

They are open to beginners/non members and provide an ideal opportunity for adults to experience the game of golf. 

To find out further information on the above sessions and to book a lesson with a qualified PGA Coach please telephone Barrow Golf Club on 01229 832121

The above activities are offered as part of England Golf's Club Coaching Grant scheme, which provides GolfMark (incorporating Clubmark) facilities with funding to support recruitment and retention activities for adults, young people and families.  GolfMark is England Golf's national scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities.  For further details visit

Details of all venues offering coaching activities as part of the Club Coaching Grant scheme will be promoted on the Get into Golf website at

The Cumbria County Golf Partnership is also helping to develop golf within the county by offering sessions to increase participation and providing support to golf clubs, players, coaches and volunteers.  See for more information.

Many golf clubs have been able to offer golf taster sessions and activities for a number of years through the support of England Golf and have introduced thousands of beginners to golf and golf clubs.  In the 2010/2011 scheme, over 29,000 participants (adults and juniors) attended one of the golf clubs offering activities as part of this scheme.  2011/2012 participation figures will be available shortly.

The Club Coaching Grant scheme is one of several initiatives jointly provided by England Golf via the England Golf Partnership's 'Whole Sport Plan' for golf and is an integral part of England Golf's vision to 'Grow the Game'.
