Beginners and golfers who maybe haven't picked up a club for a while are being encouraged to get into golf as part of a health drive for the Movember campaign.
The Celtic Manor Golf Academy has signed up to the Movember Mondays scheme and our pros will be roaming the range bays today and every other Monday in November, dispensing free tips and hints.
Players coming to the range will also be encouraged to take on the Chip for Change Challenge with the chance to win Movember gear for successfully chipping a ball into a bucket from 15 feet.
Teaching pro Tim Baker will be leading Celtic Manor's participation in the nationwide campaign and he has a personal interest in supporting Movember's fund raising for prostate and testicular cancer as he reveals in the video below, which also includes a tip to improve your chipping:
Movember, the cancer charity that famously invites men to raise money by growing moustaches for a month in November, is also committed to improving male mental health and countering physical inactivity.
Golf is seen as a fantastic way of achieving both these aims as a social sport which involves a good amount of moderate exercise. Playing the game extends life expectancy, improves your heart, lowers cholesterol, strengthens bones and helps with weight loss.
So if you've always wanted to give golf a go, or are looking for that perfect excuse to give the sport another shot, come up to the Celtic Manor Golf today or any other Monday in November and get involved.
