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.
