Broome Manor Golf Complex is hoping to benefit from The Open this weekend by enticing budding golfers to its annual Golf Week.
The Swindon Borough Council-owned course will be hosting a week of activities between Monday, 21 July and Sunday, 27 July in a bid to promote the golf venue and introduce new golfers to the sport.
The week will feature a whole host of free coaching sessions, which will teach people the basics of the swing including grip, posture, swing plane and follow-through.
The coaching sessions are aimed at families, adults and seniors and will be held throughout the week. Family sessions must consist of at least 1 adult and up to 3 children.
The course will be hosting a nine-hole corporate Texas Scramble on Wednesday (23 July)
On Saturday, 26 July there will be three junior coaching sessions from 9.30am to 10.15am, 10.30am to 11.15am and 11.30am to 12.15pm.
The following day (27 July) there will be an adult and junior six-hole fun event, which starts at 11am. Children must have their own set of clubs and adults must have their own putters.

Cllr Keith Williams, Swindon Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Services and Leisure, said: “This is a great chance for children and adults to give golf a try, particularly if they have been inspired by The Open this weekend.
“The free coaching sessions are a perfect introduction to golf and the week-long programme of activities is a good way of seeing exactly what Broome Manor has to offer.”
