The Chippenham Golf Club, Wiltshire, is paving the way to membership for new or returning golfers.
In early 2014, the club initiated the “Pathway Package” in order to increase membership numbers. A one year beginner package, designed as a soft introduction to membership for those looking to learn the game, the Pathway Package has already proven very successful with 17 players currently on board, and a further eight who have graduated onto a fuller membership category.
Leighton Walker, General Manager at Chippenham Golf Club, commented “We were looking for a way to introduce more players to the game and to the club. The Pathway Package has allowed us to do this where people might have been hesitant previously. The lower price combined with access to facilities and tuition from our PGA pro’s is proving very attractive. This makes up a valuable part of our philosophy to be open and accessible to the community”.
Participation numbers in Golf have been on a downward trend in the last ten years as other sports such as cycling are gaining in numbers. “I still firmly believe that Golf can be a great option for people looking to stay fit and competitive while also gaining the social benefits that Golf brings” says Mr Walker.
The reduced price package includes two lessons, access to the course and practice facilities, discount on food and drink in the clubhouse plus many more benefits. For further information, please call 01249 652040 or email email@example.com
