National Award for Bolton Old Links Golf Club

Bolton Old Links Golf Club have recently received the coveted national Golfmark Award from the English Golf Union. The accreditation also comes with the Clubmark Award and together they represent the Clubs commitment to a safe and friendly environment for both Junior and New golfers.

Club Director, Mrs Carole Leece said the quality of the course at Old Links has always been a major factor in attracting top class players to the Club, but I'm proud to say that I represent a Board of Directors who recognize the need to support club members of all abilities. The application process for Golfmark is quite involved, but we realise that it's important to give our youngsters and beginners the best start possible in Golf and this accreditation will allow us to provide free lessons to our growing Junior section.

Last Autumn we also held an 'Open Day', offering discounted group lessons for adults and an opening into Golf for anyone wishing to take up the sport, which proved especially popular with Ladies. The Golfmark Award means funding will now be available for us to repeat a similar event in the Spring, hopefully introducing the benefits Golf to a wider audience.

Our Club Professional Paul Horridge and Assistant Professional Mark Hancock are looking forward to the challenge. The Open Day we held last September was a fantastic day. Paul said he had enjoyed every minute and the resulting weekly lessons have been a great success. What could be better than teaching a group of beginners the basics then watching them develop.
