Burhill Golf and Leisure, owners and operators of ten destinations across the UK, has announced it is to give away 30 junior memberships at nine of its UK venues in May as part of National Golf Month. The initiative will see a total of 270 junior golf memberships given away across seven of its golf centres (Abbey Hill, Birchwood Park, Hoebridge, Ramsdale Park, The Shropshire, Thornbury and Wycombe Heights) and two of its clubs (Aldwickbury Park and Redbourn).
The structure and timings of the issuing of junior memberships will vary depending on location, with specific details available from each venue upon request. In addition to the free memberships at the nine venues, Burhill Golf Club will be giving away 30 places into its Junior Open in 2016. Held every year in April, the 36-hole Burhill Junior Open is a Surrey County Golf Union Junior Boys Order of Merit Event, as well as a Daily Telegraph Qualifying Competition.
Guy Riggott, operations director (golf) at Burhill Golf and Leisure commented, “Introducing youngsters to golf is extremely important to us here at BGL. The game teaches children many important life skills, and making the sport as accessible as possible to the younger generation is essential if the game is going to continue to grow. All of our Golf Schools have the national Golfmark accreditation which means they are recognised beginner and junior friendly facilities, whilst all of our PGA professionals are CRB checked.”
