Lyme Regis Golf Club is offering a course of five free golf coaching taster lessons free for adults starting on June 20.

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 Lyme Regis Golf Club on (01297) 443822

The above activities are offered as part of the English Golf Union (EGU) and English Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) 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 the EGU and EWGA’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 can be found on the Get into Golf website at

The Dorset 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 the EGU and EWGA and have introduced thousands of beginners to golf and golf clubs. In 2009, over 41,000 participants (adults and juniors) attended one of the 519 golf clubs offering activities as part of this scheme. 2010/2011 participation figures will be available shortly.

The Club Coaching Grant scheme is one of several initiatives jointly provided by the EGU and EWGA 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’.
