THE cur­rent aim of most golf clubs in the re­gion is to pro­vide the op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­tro­duce play­ers of all ages into golf and at the heart of the mis­sion for lo­cal clubs is the Cheshire County Devel­op­ment Of­fi­cer Sean Ham­mill from Eng­land Golf, who is re­spon­si­ble for the clubs in the East Cheshire area.

He is vis­it­ing clubs dur­ing the com­ing months and ar­rang­ing ses­sions with them to dis­cuss the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to them.

Sean has found an out­stand­ing ex­am­ple in Tyther­ing­ton Golf Club and he said: “The new coach­ing team at Tyther­ing­ton, led by Dar­ren Cain of Cain Golf, are pro­vid­ing the per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to golf; learn­ing golf in so­cial re­laxed groups with a de­fined path­way to de­velop to­gether.

“Tyther­ing­ton has ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties and is re­ally re­laxed with no de­mands for dress code or any form of stuffi­ness.

“It is a great place to Get Into Golf and share a cap­puc­cino or glass of wine.

“Group coach­ing ses­sions are now run­ning for be­gin­ners and im­provers and all de­tails are in the Get Into Golf web­site -http:// www.get­into­golf.org/”

Dar­ren Cain added: “We want to build a golf academy at Tyther­ingtron that fully caters for the needs of all golfers- ju­niors, be­gin­ners, ladies, gents, se­niors and the low hand­i­cap and pro golfer.

“The fa­cil­i­ties are sec­ond to none and we feel there is huge po­ten­tial and we have plans to turn an in­door area into a swing room so that coach­ing can be avail­able in all weath­ers.

“My­self and Fred­die Ber­is­ford-Ince will be the main coaches with Fred­die tak­ing the po­si­tion of ju­nior coach with the re­mit to build a strong and ac­tive ju­nior academy while I will be fo­cussing on the in­di­vid­ual adult client and get­ting more peo­ple in­volved in golf.

“We will soon be launch­ing a new web­site which fea­tures on­line book­ing and a pri­vate client locker where all the lessons a golfer takes will be cap­tured and up­loaded to – a great learn­ing tool that keeps our clients in­ter­ac­tive with their coach.

“To find out more my email con­tact is Dar­ren. cain@cain­golf.co.uk.”
