In conjunction with England Golf, we offer Beginner Group Coaching delivered by our PGA Professional Kris Bengtsson. Get into golf is a national scheme developed by England Golf to encourage more people to start playing golf in a relaxed and fun environment

The classes run over 5 weeks and are completely Free of Charge to participants.

The purpose of the scheme is to give beginners a general introduction to golf, in a relaxed setting alongside others of a similar standard. The course is designed to give a basic introduction to the main golfing techniques and covers putting, chipping, pitching and full swing with both irons and woods during the five weeks.

We provide all equipment and no previous experience is needed. There are no obligations or hidden costs so you really have got nothing to lose in giving it a go.

NOTE: Participants for these courses must be aged 18 or over.

Classes run continuously at different days and times throughout the year.

Each class is limited to 12 people on a first come first served basis so the sooner you book in the better to avoid any disappointment.

The intermediate sessions act as a five week follow-on class to the initial beginner sessions.

These lessons mainly focus on the developing the full golf swing as this is the most important key to being comfortable while playing on the golf course. On lessons will also take place on the course to provide an introduction.


At this stage participants are offered to take up an introductory Taster Package which includes six rounds of 9 holes and two individual 30 minute lessons on top of the weekly group lessons. This is a heavily discounted package to give everyone a chance to try our facilities before committing to a membership.

There is also the option to keep doing group lessons only for a further five weeks for 25.00, where two lessons will be out on the golf course.
