Bright sparks new golf clinics

THERE is a lot happening in the game, according to Gympie golf professional Mark Bright.

Bright is an experienced product of the Australian golfing system. He started playing when he was 11.

His list of achievements include being the Under 21 state stroke play champion, captaining and representing the state in the Australasian championships and winning four PGA sanctioned Pro-am events.

In October Bright attended a symposium at the Hyatt Coolum about the future of golf.

He said golf was heading in a new direction to make it more accessible and relevant to people who had never played the game, including people with a disability.

To go with the new direction Bright is holding two clinics.

The first, a Good Fun Golf Clinic, for junior players aged 6-17, is on December 15 and 16 at Gunabul Golf Course. The aim of the clinic is to make golf fun and open to all abilities.

The second clinic is a Summer Golf Clinic for ladies and girls on January 7, 14 and 21.

For more information phone Bright on 0402 447 317.
