Haydock offers free golf for NHS and frontline workers

HAYDOCK Park Golf Club has announced that, for the remainder of 2020, it is offering a round of golf or 15-minute taster golf lesson free to all NHS staff and frontline workers.

The Merseyside club’s business manager Stephen Nicholson said: “As a private members golf club, we aren’t overladen with cash and given that we aren’t eligible for any of the grant funding available through the government business schemes, we will struggle to make a one-off donation. However, we still want to give our support to all the incredible individuals working so hard on the frontline. Being able to offer a free game of golf to any golf enthusiast, or alternatively a free taster lesson for any keyworker who may be interested in trying something new, is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to all frontline staff and emergency care personnel who have been working tirelessly to save lives amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

When the current government restrictions end, or at the very least ease such that golf can be played again, NHS staff and keyworkers will be eligible to enjoy either; their complimentary round of golf, or a 15-minute taster lesson with the club’s head PGA professional Craig Gould.

NHS staff and frontline workers can register their interest in advance. To redeem this offer, staff are required to pre-book their tee time or lesson by calling the club on 01925 228525, or emailing and quoting ‘NHS’. They will then need to present their NHS staff ID or keyworker credentials on arrival.

As an added extra, they will also be able to invite three guests to join them, who can be signed in to play at a subsidised ‘member guest’ rate.
