The club is launching a number of introductory sessions under the Get Into Golf programme.

The courses begin with a taster session “Girls Golf Rocks”, this Saturday, May 5, between 2pm and 4pm.

This is an early introduction for junior players who may be interested in starting the game, covering all the basics and providing a light hearted casual approach to learning the rudiments of golf.

On Monday 14 a beginner session for those young ladies now keen to take the next step will be held between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

There will also be a ladies improver course over the par three layout from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Saturday, the 12th of the month.

For more information or booking reservations contact Cliff, the Seaton Professional at the Golf Club, who will be leading the courses, or via the Get Into Golf website at www.getintogolf.org/club/seaton-carew- golf-club/
