Council launches Women Getting into Golf programme

Published: 18th September 2017

** DUE TO SIGNIFICANT DEMAND, THIS PROGRAMME IS NOW FULLY BOOKED**

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme, has organised a free 12 week golf programme to encourage ladies over 18 years of age to get into golf.

The programme will commence on Thursday 5 October 2017 at the Lough Erne Resort, Enniskillen from 6pm and will be delivered by fully qualified instructors. Sessions last for one hour and all essential equipment will be provided.

Speaking about the golf programme, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Stephen McCann, said:

“The Council is delighted to offer ladies the opportunity to participate in golf lessons with fully qualified instructors enabling them to try a new sport or develop and refine their skills on the golf course through expert coaching.”

Sport Northern Ireland Chair George Lucas commented:

“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working on the delivery of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often.”

Participation on the programme is free, however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Alternatively please contact Chris Elliott by telephone on 0300 303 1777 (all calls charged at local rate) or by email at chris.elliott@fermanaghomagh.com.
