Welcome To Active WestLancs

It was interesting to see Councillor Yvonne Gagen

WLBC Cabinet member for leisure, say to the Champion “Make 2020 the year you make your health a priority. Active West Lancs can help you to achieve your goal, so take a look at the website and find the activities that are right for you”.

Active West Lancs’

is a partnership commissioned by Lancashire County Council to deliver a three year programme to improve health and wellbeing across the borough.

The four partners involved are West Lancashire Borough Council, West Lancs School Sports Partnership, West Lancs CVS Community Food Growing, and West Lancs Community Leisure Trust, ie Serco!

Today. What’s on offer

Within its myriad options is that of Active Golf, which is “a brand new initiative for you to be referred into by your GP or medical practitioner. Active West Lancs will be holding weekly golf sessions on Fridays, 10am – 2pm at Beacon Golf Club, Upholland WN8 7RU. 

Equipment can be borrowed on the day, no previous golf experience needed! So if you fancy some fresh air, meeting new people and socialising, then have a chat with your GP and if you meet the criteria, then you can be referred. NB Unlike our other programmes, this is GP referral only! Not that this offer is real golf, more a surreal experience!

It would be interesting to see what IS on offer at the Beacon Park Landfill Course

It is, usually, an 18 Hole Golf Course, but not as originally designed. Its blurb states, today “Welcome to Beacon Park Golf Centre located in the heart of West Lancashire, where you can play a round of golf on our “superb” 18 Hole course. Whether you are a budding pro or a beginner golfer our course will certainly provide an enjoyable experience”. Unusual rather than enjoyable? To reach the current first tee is an exercise, for unfit golfers, in dragging your feet though a sea of mud, as the course is”reprofiled” by Serco!

What’s more on our 19th hole we also have a cafe where you can grab a coffee, bacon sandwich or enjoy much deserved glass or two after your game.
