TriGolf Volunteers Needed – Canwick Park Golf Club (April/May)

Over the upcoming school half-term holidays, Canwick Park Golf Club are offering Tri-Golf taster sessions to children aged 7-11 years. The sessions will encourage children to participate in physical activity through golf, being offered an opportunity to try golf in a safe and secure environment, introducing children to the golf club environment, in addition to being provided introductory coaching with Canwick Park’s Junior Coach, George Wilkinson.


It is very difficult to run events such as this without the help of volunteers. Therefore, we send this e-mail, to ask if anybody is able and willing to come and help at any of the days. Whether that be part of one of the days, the whole of the session or all of the dates listed, your help would be greatly appreciated! You don’t need to have any experience of coaching or participating in golf, but if you have some experience of working with children, coaching or leadership or if you have helped run events before, it would be advantageous.

The dates of the sessions are as follows: 9th April,  10th April, 16th April,  17th April, 28th May, 29th May.

As I’m sure you will be aware, voluntary experience is always great to put on your CV.  If you are interested in helping with the programme or would like any further information, please contact Kevin Leigh, Club Manager by telephone on 01522 542912 or via e-mail at manager@canwickpark.co.uk

Thank you!
