Published: 9th February 2016

Young people with a disability will have the opportunity to develop their golfing skills with the launch of a new programme developed by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.

The free six week golf programme, suitable for young people aged 11 to 18, will be delivered by fully qualified instructors at the Lough Erne Resort, Golf Academy, Enniskillen. All equipment will be provided.

Speaking about the new golf programme, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“The Council is pleased to launch this new golf programme for our young residents.

The programme is a great way for young people new to the sport or keen to improve their golfing skills to receive expert coaching.”

The six week golf programme starts at the Lough Erne Resort Golf Academy on Saturday 20 February 2016 at 10.00 am. Lessons last for one hour.

Participation on the programme is free, however places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Participants on the programme must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or carer for the duration of each one hour coaching session.
