Learning to Play

If you are new to golf, a complete beginner, or you are returning to the game after a break, then our learn2play golf academy or our One2One beginners package is the ideal way to get you started or back into the game.


We will guide you through the whole process and advise you where to play, where to practice, what equipment you will need and how much it will cost.


Although golf once had an "elitist" image this has been dispelled over the years and is now a much more cosmopolitan and affordable sport. You may well be surprised at how little it can cost to get yourself playing. You can learn on your own (see One2One coaching), share lessons with friends or join one of our learn2play academy groups.

One2One Beginners Package

This package is designed to give you the perfect start in golf. In total you will receive 5 hours of tuition and a club to use throughout this course of lessons.

The course will start with a one hour introductory lesson to set you on your way. This will cover all the basics such as learning the correct grip, how to stand and how to aim yourself and your club.

You will then receive 8 further 30 minute lessons covering all aspects of the game as follows:

  • Iron play (3 lessons)
  • Woods
  • Putting
  • Chipping
  • Pitching
  • Bunkers

You will also receive written notes to help you with all these different parts of the game together with practice drills to work on in your own time.


The total itemised value of these lessons would be £220 but as a package you will pay only £195


All your lessons can be arranged at times convenient to you.


If you would like to book or give this great package as a gift then please call or email.

Beginner's Group Coaching

If you prefer to learn in a fun and sociable group environment then ask us about our Get Into Golf group coaching sessions. These sessions are affordable and are aimed at complete beginners or at those who played years ago but fancy taking up the game again and getting to grips with the basics.


Each session lasts approximately an hour and each person will learn at their own pace within the group and progress as they feel confident and able to take the next steps. Every session will cover the basics of grip, aim, alignment, stance and posture together with general advice and personalised tips for each individual.


Our Get Into Golf coaching sessions happen almost every week throughout the year and you can start at any time as the format is the same for each session.


The cost of our Get Into Golf coaching is just £25 and will cover your first 5 sessions .... thereafter it's just £10 per session or £50 for 6 ..... just come along as often as you can.
