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 voucher also enables the youths to play the par three, nine hole course, for free, if they participate with two paying adults.

"Here at Mill Green we really encourage youngsters to get involved. Children as young as four have been known to play here.
