European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley has shown that he is right behind ClubGolf's drive to get more children into golf by showing his support for the £20 junior membership offer that has been made available across Scotland.
This will be the second year the Scottish Government funded scheme has been in place, offering youngsters involved in ClubGolf coaching a great way to join a club and save money. The voucher can redeemed at ClubGolf clubs against the cost of the junior's first membership as ClubGolf continue to help boost junior numbers around the country.
“As well as introducing as many people as possible to golf ahead of the Ryder Cup in 2014, it's our mission to increase the number of junior club members in Scotland for the foreseeable future.” - Jackie Davidson, ClubGolf manager
McGinley is encouraging all young golfers to take advantage of this scheme.
He said: “Becoming a member of a golf club offers children so many things; not least the chance to play this great game and have fun out on the golf course, but also the opportunity to learn the etiquette and manners, which sets our sport apart from so many others.
“The £20 junior membership offer, therefore, is a terrific incentive to make that all-important first membership even more affordable for families and it would be great to see as many youngsters as possible take advantage of it.”
ClubGolf hope saving helps
ClubGolf manager Jackie Davidson agrees with McGinley and hopes assisting parents with a £20 saving, which could reduce junior fees by more than half, allows a great number of young golfers to join clubs.
“I'm delighted that we have been able to bring such an incredible offer to children taking part in ClubGolf coaching in schools and clubs, and owe a great deal of thanks to the Scottish Government for their ongoing funding support.
