More than 100 Merseyside cabbies will take the ‘golfing’ knowledge courtesy of the UK’s only PGA national residential golf academy Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa.
With The Open expected to attract more than 230,000 visitors to Merseyside, the region’s taxi-drivers will be busier than ever and free ‘Golf Workshops’ will equip them with the latest golfing know-how to keep passengers entertained.
Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa’s team of experts will provide free two-hour ‘Golf Inductions’ to interested taxi drivers next month as part of its focus on making golf accessible to all.
Matthew Allen-Chilman, head of golf at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa, said: “We’ll be running a series of knowledge workshops which give cabbies tutelage on the main golf terminology, background on the Merseyside golfers taking part, an explanation of golf scoring and a free round of golf to put their knowledge into practice.”
“The Open’s arrival in Sefton is a real coup and we want to make sure that the game is accessible to everyone – not just the professionals and golf stalwarts.”
