Lochview ASN golf day
On Tuesday 31st May around 40 young golfers with special needs took to the fairways recently as part of a fun day at Lochview Family Golf Centre
Earlier this year the club came was named runners up in the RBS Junior Club of the Year Awards, in the best community interaction category. And the ASN fun golf event was organised to mark this achievement.
Lochview was praised by the judges for its ongoing commitment to nurturing ASN (additional support needs) golf.
John Kelly, PGA Golf coach with North Lanarkshire Leisure, explained: “We work closely with schools and colleges to encourage young people with physical or mental disabilities to take part in golf.
“The aim is to build up their confidence to encourage them in to being a club member of the golf club.
“ASN golf was started around four years ago at Lochview and has gone from strength-to-strength.”
“In 2014 two young people from the project became full members and are playing golf with other club golfers, which is a huge achievement for all the golf team here.”
