Golf Project Is Big Hit With Learners

So far over 60 learners have attended the ‘Swing Into Golf’ sessions with pro golfer Adam Powell at Hartford Golf club.

The specialist programme, which is spread over four weeks, provided learners with training on putting and time on the driving range, leading up to a session on the golf course.

PGA Professional Adam Powell comments,

“It’s been amazing to work with the students of Petty Pool College. The progression from session one to session four has been remarkable to watch and to see the students confidence grow not only in themselves but in a new environment and sport. It’s the highlight of my working week.”

Petty Pool Curriculum Manager Emma Myles has co-ordinated the enrichment activity. She says,

“”Our learners have really been benefiting from the opportunity to develop not only their golf skills and techniques, but build on positive relationships with their peers and naturally develop their communication skills. Not only do they enjoy engaging in the golfing sessions lead by professional golfer Adam, but they have also loved engaging with their local community.”

 The partnership project has been funded by Sport England and Active Cheshire.
