The Leicestershire and Rutland County Golf Partnership are working alongside local clubs to offer golfing opportunities for all.
Get into Golf is a national project for beginner golfers. If you would like to try the game, please look at the list of clubs below to sign up at a venue that is closest to you. The lessons are at minimal cost, but at some of the venues you may need to pay for the balls, which cost a maximum of £5 per week.
All the clubs involved are either GolfMark accredited by England Golf or are working towards the award which means the club is beginner friendly for adults and juniors.
We are also working on initiatives for people with disabilities so please get in touch.
Our current projects are listed below.
