DORSET women golfers have saved up their supermarket vouchers to pay for £400 worth of Tri-Golf equipment to encourage more children to take up the game.

The Dorset Golf Partnership – which works to promote the game – has bought the equipment with Sainsbury Active Kids vouchers donated by the Dorset Ladies’ County Golf Association.

The Tri-Golf equipment will be used in partnership activities to attract more young golfers and in coaching sessions taken by PGA professionals.

Dee Wood, the county development officer, has just presented a set to Fern Grimshaw, the PGA professional at the Wessex Golf Centre in Weymouth.

Wood said: “This is a fantastic gift from the Dorset Ladies and helps us to give children a fun introduction to golf.”

Grimshaw, who has recently attended the Partnership’s Tri-Golf Activator course, made history this season when she became the first woman to win the West Region PGA assistants’ championship.
