Charley Hull & Mel Reid support National Golf Month Ladies European Tour

If you haven’t picked up a club before or want to get back into golf, 2017 is the year to do it. Come May, throughout the UK, there will be 50,000 opportunities during the month to take part in a free one hour golf lesson for women to learn to play golf.

The National Golf Month (NGM) team are being supported by winning professional golfers Charley Hull, Mel Reid and Paul McGinley to encourage UK golf professionals and clubs to offer free golf lessons through their Get Women Golfing campaign.
