CORNWALL GOLF WEEK 2013 is happening now!

cornwall golf partership logoRarely has Cornwall golf started a summer season with such a high profile.

As recently reported, county development officer Simon Wood has helped launched a new television feature dedicated to golf in Cornwall.

This week Wood will drive an early season campaign to get more Cornish people playing golf during the annual Cornwall Golf Week.

Wood said: "Golf is a great game and this is the perfect time of year to start."

The action started with city centre taster days at Truro's Lemon Quay, where passers-by were invited to try golf.

25 Cornish golf clubs and ranges will be offering free taster sessions for newcomers and returners to the game until next Sunday.

There will be plenty of follow-on opportunities, with all clubs offering a low-cost five-week programme of structured group coaching straight after Cornwall Golf Week.

Cornwall Golf Week 2013 is part of a festival of golf weeks being held across the South West this spring, which support the national Get into Golf campaign.

Cornwall Golf Partnership's Wood commented: "We are hoping to attract hundreds of people to start playing. Last year 500 people had a go and we want to do better this year.

"We're very excited about Golf Week because Cornwall has so much to offer the beginner golfer. Our golf clubs and driving ranges are welcoming and accessible and they are working hard to encourage more people to play."
