They will be delivered by experienced, PGA-qualified coaches Craig Pollard and Fame Tate, with all equipment provided.

It’s all part of a community project, backed by a £10,000 grant from Sport England, that is being run by the North-East Derbyshire Golf Development Group.

Tate, a former Ladies’ European Tour player, said: “I am excited to be working on this project because my passion as a coach is getting more people to play the game. Hopefully, these sessions will encourage a wide variety of people to give golf a go.”
