GOLF BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Are you stuck for ideas for your child’s birthday? Well why not try something completely different. You’ve probably done the football, bowling and cinema parties; if your child is interested in golf, why not have a golf party? We can accommodate all golf levels, even if your son or daughter’s friends have never touched a club. Forrester Park clubhouse can also cater for all your food and beverage needs. Party bookings can be taken at any time as long as there is availability.
The cost for your party will be £50 for the golf plus £4.50 per child for food (eg chicken nuggets & chips, sausages & chips etc).
SCHOOL COACHING (TRI GOLF)
Craig teaches golf at several local primary schools, including Baynards, Great Totham, Milldene, St Lukes, Tollesbury, Tiptree Heath and Heybridge. He uses Tri-Golf equipment with plastic clubs and sponge balls. The sessions are mainly fun based, with the children learning the basics of the golf swing, etiquette and discipline that they can apply to their school work. If your child attends any of these schools and wishes to take part, please contact the school office directly.
