Mundesley’s efforts earn place in elite

Mundesley has joined the elite band of Norfolk clubs to win the GolfMark, the national award for junior and beginner-friendly clubs.

'This is very significant for the club and the team who worked on the project have done a fantastic job,' said manager Ryan Pudney.

GolfMark is awarded by the English Golf Union and English Women's Golf Association.

Mundesley were presented with their plaque by county development officer Karen Young at a successful family starter day. This is just one of a number of initiatives at the club to attract and encourage new members of all ages.

Club professional Pudney is running a structured junior coaching programme and going into schools to introduce youngsters to the game.

Young said: 'Mundesley's working party spent considerable time updating and putting in place new club procedures and opportunities for both adults and juniors.

'The club has already benefited from their hard work and have been supported by the Norfolk County Golf Partnership to run a Golf4Women taster session which attracted 16 women to try golf for the first time.
