What to do and what not to do?

Participants will take part in an introductory rules session and that will provide you with a basic understanding of rules. The rules can be the most intimidating aspects of the game, but they certainly do not have to be.Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain a better understanding of the game.


Participants will be taught the attributes of the fourteen clubs that traditionally make up a golf set. There will be a discussion as to where and how these different clubs are used during the course of a round of golf. Having your clubs fit to your stature, ability and swing speed will be a huge factor in the success of your game. You will be shown what equipment is necessary to get started and what extra essentials are required to improve your skills and your enjoyment of golf in general.


Are you right or left handed?

This session will focus on teaching participant’s proper golf grip, posture and stance. Focusing how to maintain balance and create a flowing motion when swinging a club. This is where you’ll get to hit shots and give golf a try.


In this session, participant’s will focus on the short game, around the green. Different situations will employ various techniques and clubs. You will learn the most common techniques of these so that you feel confident when you play. You will get a chance to experiment with putting and chipping – important skills in any golfer’s repertoire.
