Pupils from Caedmon College and Eskdale enjoy a session of golf, with back, Tony Mason and Colin Rutland

As well as going into local schools as a part of their Get Into Golf initiative, the club are also running a number of other sessions.

Captain Colin Rutland, lady captain Karen Fellows, pro Tony Mason, lady vice-captain Wendy Hurworth and rabbits captain Colin Hood have been working with pupils from Caedmon College and Eskdale.

They covered a number of different aspects of the game, including putting, chipping and general technique.

Each student taking part received a set of tees for attending, they were given a free voucher and invited to attend a free taster session at the golf course to be held July 28 and 31.

The club would like to thank Caedmon College staff for their assistance in setting the event up, in particular Anna Harrison.

Further sessions will be taking place throughout the year to try and attract people into the game.

A string of beginners sessions, run by professional Mason, will start on April 24 and will run for five weeks.

These will be followed by a four-week run of sessions for improving golfers, which start at the end of May.

The cost for each programme is £25 per head.

For those golfers who are thinking about joining and would like to meet and play with existing members, the club will be running Nine and Wine sessions on Friday evenings in June and through the summer to August.
