American Golf has several initiatives prepared for National Golf Month. With 73 stores signed up for free coaching sessions, American Golf is providing hundreds of opportunities for anyone wanting to pick up a club for the first time or brush up on their golfing skills. The hour long sessions are open to everyone and all participants will receive a two pack of Wilson DX2 soft balls. Specific women’s and junior sessions are also available at many stores, a move aimed at removing some of the barriers to participation in these under-represented groups.
American Golf will also be getting behind the National Golf Month 30ft Putt challenge. Each store will line up their putts, aiming to be the most inventive 30 foot putters in the company. Head office has laid down the gauntlet with this video http://bit.ly/1OO79dj and there will be fierce competition from the stores to go one better and take the American Golf bragging rights.
Doug Poole, director of National Golf Month is delighted with the support shown by American Golf. “To have the support of American Golf is fantastic for National Golf Month. With so many venues and PGA professionals on hand to offer free coaching, the work that they’re putting into helping the initiative will have a real impact on growing the game of golf.”
Dan Gathercole (pictured), head of marketing at American Golf commented, “Through National Golf Month we’re offering girls and women the chance to come in store with their friends and get a taste for the game in a relaxed environment with our PGA professionals.”
