Swing Fit has also been offered at Seabrook and Wynyard Golf Clubs in Tasmania.

The club will also host 'come and try' days during October as part of Golf Australia's National Golf Monthaimed at re-engaging with lapsed members as well as introducing new players to the game.

Meanwhile Golf Tasmania's development officer Simon Weston has been travelling the state, and reports that he sees positive signs for golf in Tasmania.
