INTRODUCTORY DAYS

The club runs a couple of days each year where individuals or groups can join in a fun session that includes all the basic instruction and then some on course time with an experienced player.  "She Loves Golf" is a dedicated program for introductory ladies and as well as the day, there are 3-5 follow up sessions.  "Love Golf" is for both genders and follows a similar format.  Contact the club to register.  
 
NEW PLAYER PROGRAM

In addition we also provide for introductory beginners courses. These courses are ideal for either the new or recently new. They offer a great grounding of the basics and are an excellent way to ease yourself into the game.
 
The program consists of weekly summer coaching working with modern, effective coaching techniques and strategies. In the autumn, this coaching is complimented with on course play which links participants up with other "beginners", introduces the handicap system and covers relevant rules and etiquette. All players will have cards completed for handicapping by the end of the program.
 
Challenge, humour and camaraderie are hallmarks of the program.
