A new fun festival of golf is being teed up at Mundesley Golf Club as part of its drive to attract new members — and provide fresh challenges and social events for its existing ones.
The club will stage its Golf Week from June 9 to 15 with a range of events from a family open day and lady beginners' taster session to a new 'open' competition.
The venture is part of the club's ongoing vision to attract members of all ages and abilities including juniors, ladies and retired people, which has already attracted 108 new golfers in 16 months.
Club chairman Donald Stuart said: "Golf is a great activity for a wide range of people — from young sporty types, to adults wanting a pleasant way to enjoy a social activity while savouring fresh air and lovely countryside.
"This initiative is a great way to drop in and get a taste of the sport, and our friendly, welcoming club. We would love to hear from any individuals or groups who would like to make a visit to our new golf week as part of their summer activities.
Mundesley Golf Club is proud to have a flexible course with a convenient layout enabling you to curtail your round easily for those with less time and energy — but remains a test for even the best golfers.
"We hope our new golf week will be a chance for people to come and find out for themselves and provide some new fun for our current members," he added.
