Golf clubs in Northumberland are offering free adult golf courses for new players or those looking to get back into the sport.

At Alnwick Castle Golf Club the sessions are being funded by Northumberland County Golf Partnership and are provided by their affiliated PGA professional, Peter Ritchie. They are open to anyone aged 16 years or older who is not a member of a golf club.

All equipment is provided and there is a relaxed dress code, meaning people can attend the sessions in jeans and trainers. Sessions start on February 25 at 3pm for an hour at Alnwick Castle Golf Club.

To book a place contact the club on 01665 602632 or visit
