GOLF pro Paul Dangerfield and Kingaroy Golf Club president John Dalton are calling all interested parties to get involved in the club's free mens lessons starting on Sunday, March 12.

The club was successful in its application for the government-funded "Get Going Clubs” grant, designed to get people involved in sport and physical activity.

Dalton said the grant allowed the club to buy equipment for the six-week program and bring Dangerfield on board.

"It's a great way to get people here and see if they like it,” Dalton said.

"Paul is a great coach and really good bloke - he's a fair character and gets on well with everyone, so we're hoping it will be really good.”

Dangerfield, a PGA accredited coach and 43-year veteran, said he hoped the program would bring "some fresh blood” to the sport, but it also provided a commitment-free opportunity for those sitting on the fence.

"We just want to promote the game of golf,” Dangerfield said.

"It's free, so there's no commitment to coming - it's a great opportunity for anyone wanting to get started without worrying about the costs of private lessons.”

Starting with the basics, Dangerfield will focus on correcting grip, stance and swing technique.

"It's about understanding the basics of the game, and finding the correct position so the rest can happen automatically,” Dangerfield said.
