Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club is delighted to announce that it is an official partner to The PGA’s We Love Golf campaign. It is one of only five venues in Scotland working together with the PGA and The Solheim Cup on this fantastic initiative that encourages more women and girls to try the game of golf for the first time in a fun and friendly environment.
Launched in 2018, the PGA’s We Love Golf campaign is designed to help more women find out about golf and put them in touch with a PGA Professional who can help them learn to play in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
The campaign kicks off today at Murrayshall with the first of two free 1-hour taster sessions which are open to women and girls of all ages, on the 15th and 22nd July 2019 between 6pm – 7pm. The two sessions, run by PGA Teaching Professional, Gregor Wright promise a fun introduction to the game of golf in the beautiful surroundings of the Murrayshall estate. Everyone is welcome and no previous experience of playing golf is required. Golf equipment will also be provided.
For anyone who gets bitten by the golfing bug during the free taster sessions, Murrayshall is also offering a discounted series of 4 weekly follow-up golf lessons, for just £50 on the dates listed below. Those signing up for these lessons will also automatically receive complimentary membership of the Lynedoch course from the 29th July – 19th August, as well as tickets to the practice day at the Solheim Cup on Wednesday 11th September where they will meet with other women from across the region who have started their golfing journey as part of this We Love Golf campaign.
4-week follow-up lesson dates:

“At Murrayshall we are passionate about growing the game of golf, so naturally we are extremely proud to be working closely with the PGA, as an official We Love Golf centre, on this superb initiative that aims to encourage more female participation,” commented Kevin Keenan, General Manager of Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club.
The golf courses at Murrayshall benefitted from over £250k of investment in new machinery and an extensive bunker and drainage programme over the winter months and are now in their best ever condition ever. A new golfers’ clubhouse facility, including refurbished changing rooms and spike bar have also just opened, providing members and visitors with beautiful surroundings in which to relax before or after their round or practice session.
Jonathan Wright, Golf Development Executive at the Professional Golfers’ Association commented, “We are delighted to be working with The Solheim Cup to fulfil its ambition to increase female participation in Scotland.
The We Love Golf campaign bridges the gap between women and girls who may be interested in trying the sport and the PGA Members who deliver fantastic coaching programmes.
We know that women attending the taster session at Murrayshall will have a great first golf experience. They will make new friendships which will start then out on a pathway to regular participation and a life-long love of the game.”
Set amidst the 365 acres of glorious Perthshire countryside, just minutes from the City of Perth, Murrayshall is blessed with 27 holes of breath-taking parkland golf, extensive practice facilities and a team of expert PGA teaching professionals. The club has adopted a very progressive nature and welcomes golfers of all ages and abilities, with no handicap certificates required to play on either of its courses.
