Golf professional Ben Kerr went back to school recently and handed out some top tips. The PGA professional who runs the West Suffolk Golf Centre in Beck Row visited Ditton Lodge in Newmarket and met some of the pupils there.

He gave Years 3 and 4 some golfing tips and through the HSBC Golf Roots funding will be offering free taster sessions to children aged 8-11 at the Beck Row centre.

The school is also hoping to run an after school golfing club in the Spring and Summer terms.

Sports leader Sandra Paskell said: “It was so nice to have a past pupil coming along to put something back into school. The children were very impressed to have him here and enjoyed the sessions.” More information on the taster sessions is available from West Suffolk Golf Centre on 01638 718972.
