Living Golf and Music combine to boost Feelgood Festival

PEOPLE OF ALL AGES enjoy the sport – now Golf is being used as a method of supporting the Moray Feelgood Festival this month through a special tournament.

Living Golf will contribute to the Festival organised by the Moray Wellbeing Hub through the introduction of ‘Pop Goes the Golfball – Reclaiming Who I Am’.

That is a tournament open to all ages and regardless if they are golfers or have never played the game, and seeks to uniquely combine the essential qualities of feeling free, uplifted and contributing by being in a team. Through that it seeks to support people with the challenges of Mental Health.

Staged at the Covesea Golf Links from 10am until 3pm on Saturday, October 21, all are encouraged to bring their clubs and musical instruments – to swing to the music and dance in Covesea’s natural amphitheatre.

A spokesman said: “All players and visitors will be encouraged to take part – the vision is for this to become an annual event. Everyone is welcome – including wheelchair golfers. Living Golf provides golf equipment for those without clubs, while food and drinks will be made available.”

The event is free of charge and will feature Calum Mackenzie Jones alongside other talented young Moray musicians.

Part of the Mental Health Arts Festival, more on this event and many others can be found by picking up a leaflet on the Moray Feelgood Festival from local libraries or visit the Moray Wellbeing Hub online.
