Linlithgow Golf Club is opening its doors to the public on Sunday, April 12, when it stages an open day.

The event, which is open to anyone interested in the game, will offer a short game clinic at 10am; a free putting clinic at midday and also free use of 
the golf course between 10.30am-1pm.

The open day event will be overseen by the club’s new golf professional Kenny Monaghan (31), who arrives at Linlithgow after a five year spell at the 
exclusive Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club.

The fully qualified AA PGA professional has also worked as a professional at Bothwell Castle GC and Kingsbarns.

Further afield he has worked with leading Europan Tour golf instructors Peter Cowan (Dubai Golf) and Alan McCloskey, who is currently coaching Stephen Gallacher, Marc Warren and Scott Jamieson.

As well as the planned open day, Kenny is hoping to introduce local youngsters to golf through the ‘‘Clubgolf’’ initiative at the club’s short three-hole course over the coming months.

If anyone is interested, just turn up on the day.
