GLENCORSE GOLF CLUB REQUIRE VOLUNTEER (S4-S6 PUPILS) SUPPORT
In May, Glencorse Golf Club are due to start some coaching sessions to encourage more junior members in to the club. These coaching sessions for primary aged pupils will run on Sunday afternoons around 3pm. They require some Penicuik HS pupils to support the coaching sessions and in return for your volunteering, they would like to offer the volunteers a reduced membership or a round of golf. Ideally, this opportunity is for pupils trained to lead Clubgolf or are a keen golfer – however this is not essential.
