Once again, Golf Development Wales ran successful Tri-Golf sessions at the annual Royal Welsh Show in mid Wales.
Over 250,000 people attend the Show over four days and hundreds of children were given an opportunity to have a go at Tri-Golf.
They could also have a go at real golf thanks to the presence of the PGA Bryant Homes Roadshow (pictured in the background).
HRH Prince Edward visited the golf arena on the Wednesday of the show and was impressed at the efforts to get more children (especially girls) interested in the game.
We are hoping to secure the services of the PGA Bryant Homes Roadshow again next year – so if you know of any potentially suitable events then please let us know and we can discuss the possibility with the PGA team.
