Aimed at supporting young people across the country in continuing their education during this uncertain period of isolation, this fun and creative event will take place from Monday 23 March – Saturday 28 March, providing daily challenges to engage and stimulate children through a series of fun, golf related tasks. All that is required to take part is one piece of paper each day, some pencils and lots of creativity!
