BUDDING golfers were on the hunt for Easter eggs rather than missing golf balls during a family weekend at Broome Manor Golf Complex.
The Swindon Council-run golf course hosted an Easter Open Weekend from Good Friday to Easter Sunday as a way of introducing more people to the sport.
The weekend teed off with an Easter egg hunt on the Friday where children had the chance to search the course for hidden treats.

Lee Hayward, Broome Manor’s PGA golf professional, was on hand to help coach those who fancied a go at golf.
He said: “The Easter Open Weekend was a great opportunity for families to come along and see what Broome Manor has to offer.
“There was be plenty going on for children, including our Easter egg hunt on the Friday, and parents took advantage of some of the free taster sessions on offer.”
