YOUNGSTERS stuck for things to do over the summer are being given a free solution for their boredom - golf.
From this week onwards, the generous guys down at Mill Green Golf Club are offering a free one-hour lesson to anyone aged five to 14 on Saturday mornings.
All you have to do is present the voucher that appears in this week's Welwyn & Hatfield Times.

"The thing about golf is that it's a really good sport to take up, it can teach you all sorts of things like etiquette and manners.
"It is also a really good way to get out in the fresh air and learn a new sport."
Ian Parker, pro at the Gypsy Lane course, added: "It's about getting the kids out and about and enjoying golf now and coming into the summer holidays.
"They will be able to see how much fun they can have away from their computers.
"Golf is one of the biggest growing sports so come along and give it a go."
