A NEW course to help volunteers train the next generation of golfers is being held in Northumberland.

The two-day programme will give anyone taking part an ASQ PGA Level One qualification, which will allow them to assist more qualified coaches in delivering golf coaching sessions for beginners.

It takes place on June 18 and 19 at Linden Hall Golf Club and costs £288. A Home Study Workbook is provided ahead of the course, which takes around five weeks to complete.

The closing date for applications is the end of tomorrow (Friday).

The Northumberland County Golf Partnership has some funding available to help with costs in return for support with the Partnership’s coaching programmes. Further details are available from county development officer Lisa Ferrie at

The PGA coaching course is one of a number of projects aimed at increasing participation in golf run under the umbrella of the Northumberland County Golf Partnership.

This is a collaboration of a number of stakeholders in the sport including the English Golf Union, The English Women’s Golf Association, the PGA, the Golf Foundation and Sport England.

In Northumberland, the partnership is supported by the Northumberland Union of Golf Clubs, the Northumberland Ladies County Golf Association and the Northumberland Junior Golfing Association.
