Britain's Birchwood Park Golf Centre coaching future Open Champions

For youngsters inspired by Ernie Els in the weekend's Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Anne's, Birchwood Park Golf Centre is giving potential champions of tomorrow the chance to learn all about the sport in special summer holiday coaching camps.

The public pay-and-play facility's expert PGA Professionals will be staging three coaching camps every week of the summer holidays for children of all ages and abilities to learn how to swing like Rory McIlroy, chip like Lee Westwood and putt like Luke Donald.

The first camp will begin on Monday, July 30 with the final camp concluding on Wednesday, August 29, and will utilise the extensive facilities at Birchwood Park - part of BGL Golf, the UK's leading golf course owner and operator.

The camps will begin in the 41-bay covered driving range, taking the children through the basics of the game, developing their swing before tackling their short game, utilising the practice putting green and concluding with a fun competition on the outstanding Par-3 Orchard Course, where a variety of prizes will be on offer.

Graham Rolland, Birchwood Park Golf Centre General Manager, said: "Children will be taken right through the basics of golf, including putting, chipping, iron play and woods by our team of expert teachers, who have experienced coaching all manner of players from toddlers swinging their first clubs through to elite county players.

"Our coaching camps offer children of all ages and abilities a fun and safe environment in which to learn all about golf."

Each week's activities cost just £70 per child. Full details of the coaching camps are available at:
