As we count down to opening day on Sunday 27th March the weather appears to be improving and the course is benefiting.

Plans to the re-commencement of our junior coaching programme are now well in hand and it is planned that we will again offer lessons both on the course and in the local schools. In an exciting development the club has also been chosen to hold the junior schools championship in May.

The club has now finalised plans to offer local people who wish to try out the game of golf the chance to do this through our new “Golf Academy”. If you know of anyone who would be interested, please direct them to our website using the following link, http://www.nggc.uk/golf/golf-academy
