CARNOUSTIE Leisure Centre hosted a sports skills session to encourage children’s interest in golf.

On Wednesday morning around 80 Primary 5 pupils from Burnside, Monikie and Newbigging Primary Schools visited the Clubgolf event organised by the Angus Council Sports Development Team and Angus Active Schools.

The children took part in a series of golf based drills and games and gave the children an opportunity to experience different aspects of golf.

Senior pupils from Carnoustie High School, who are completing their Level 2 Sports Leader Award, were on hand to help the children as was golf professional, Nikki Christie of Carnoustie Golf Links.
