Primary school pupils in north Norfolk have been getting a taste of golf in their sports lessons.

Coaching at school and on the course is being enjoyed at Mundesley Golf Club by youngsters from Colby Primary and Mundesley Junior and First schools.

They are shown how to drive, putt and get out of bunkers — while having fun with team games.

Club professional Ryan Pudney said: “We aim to give the children a positive and enjoyable experience in the hope they might take up the sport one day.

“It also teaches them good life values such as manners and patience. And it is great to see them making progress, which can only be done with sticking at it — in an age when many things are instant.”

Mundesley Golf Club is hoping to expand its youth work to other schools and youth organisations.
