BGS Resumes Free Blind Golf Taster Sessions!

In collaboration with our friends at Fairways Indoor Golf Arena in Coatbridge, we’re delighted to offer free taster sessions to interested groups. The next session will be on 18th May, however, we’re happy to schedule dates for specific groups. More sessions will be held later in Falkirk (July), and we can host similar sessions elsewhere around Scotland depending on demand.
