A golf mem­o­ries taster ses­sion is to be held at Blair­gowrie Golf Club on Wed­nes­day this week.

The ses­sion will take place from 2pm to 3pm and aims to pro­vide a fo­rum for older ladies and gentle­men to meet to have a chat about their golf­ing days.

They will also be able to re­vive their golf skills on the driv­ing range and the putting green, with support from pro­fes­sional Charles Dernie and trained vol­un­teers.

The project, run by Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil and Alzheimers Scot­land, al­ready meets ev­ery week at Noah’s Ark Cen­tre in Perth and has been a great suc­cess.

It is ideal for older peo­ple with mem­ory or de­men­tia is­sues, as dis­cus­sions about their favourite sports or hob­bies can of­ten spark mem­o­ries about the past, boost­ing men­tal health, and also pro­vid­ing valu­able so­cial in­ter­ac­tion and ex­er­cise for older peo­ple.

And those be­hind the project hope that more ses­sions can be ar­ranged at Blair­gowrie Golf Club in the near fu­ture.

A foot­ball mem­o­ries project also op­er­ates in part­ner­ship with St John­stone’s Com­mu­nity Trust at Mc­Di­armid Park and in Blair­gowrie.
