A group of children have been learning to play golf as part of two unique summer golf camps taking place at both Castlereagh Hills Golf Course and Aberdelghy Golf Course.
The camps, which were aimed at children aged 5-14 years, provided an introduction to golf through a number of fun workshops on the course. The sessions were delivered by the Golf Professional team in conjunction with Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.
Speaking at the event, Councillor Sharon Skillen, Chair of the Leisure & Community Development Committee said, “The summer golf camps provide a fantastic platform to bring children together to experience a sport, which many will be trying for the first time.
“Throughout the week, children had the opportunity to take part in series of workshops and challenges under the expert coaching of the Chris Jelly Golf team. It was also great to see first-hand, the children putting their new skills into practice, which you can tell by the smiles and laughter, how much the sessions were enjoyed by everyone who attended.
“I hope to see all the children back onto the course again either as a junior member or at a golf outing with their family. Who knows, we could see the future rise of the next Rory McIlroy!”
