The holiday clubs will be running at Newport infant school and Newport junior school each week during the summer holiday starting and 9am and finishing at 3pm with an early start option from 8.15am and late pick up available allowing children to continue participating in the fun right up until 4pm.

Kevin Short, head professional at Aqualate golf said ‘This is really good opportunity to get more children interested in golf through the taster sessions and also show how much fun can be had even at a young age.

Aqualate golf are very positive about the ongoing partnership, allowing them to extend the accessibility of golf to the younger members of the community whilst also making them and parents aware of their presence in the Newport area.

Dan Groome, course manager at Aqualate golf understands the need to build links within the community adding ‘Such a partnership with Activ8 allows us to make people within the community aware of how much fun golf can be and hopefully entice them to explore the sport further and come and try out our facilities here at Aqulate golf’

Dan Wilson continued, ‘We are really enthusiastic about the link, it’s a real boost to the local community and will help make accessibility to golf a lot easier for its younger participants and will also reduce its barriers to entry’
