Kibworth Golf Club has launched a project to encourage older people to exercise safely. It's the first such course in the country.
£2,650 has been given to the Club from Harborough District Council's Community Grant Fund to provide low impact exercise to people with limited mobility and to senior citizens.
The fund comes from money paid to the District Council by the Government in respect of new homes built in the area.
Officers at Kibworth Golf Club say the project will help to bring the club closer to the community as well as making a positive step towards improving community health.
They will be accepting referrals from the Kibworth GP practices.
