Getting into the swing of things at Claremont Golf Club

CLAREMONT Golf Club is encouraging members and the local community to work on their short and long game with a beginner friendly come and try session.

The ‘Get into Golf’ program will support and educate Australians to lead active lifestyles through a beginner golf program that combines skill development with course familiarity to take that first shot on the golf course.

Classes are run in small groups for about 60 minutes and have a strong focus on using the game itself to facilitate the learning, rather than just focus on a skill.

Lessons also give participants a chance to be social.

The program provides participants the opportunity to socialise and get to know others, ensuring that everyone relaxes into the activities and will receive support and feedback.

PGA professional Debra Brinkley will conduct a come and try session on Sunday 12 September at the Claremont Golf Club from 2pm to 3pm, after which refreshments will be served in the club house.

“Get into Golf is the fun, healthy and social way for men and women to get started in golf, and the come and try day is free, with all equipment being provided,” Ms Brinkley said.

“Simply turn up in comfortable clothing, gym gear is acceptable, and soft-soled shoes – bring your own clubs if you wish.”

Following the come and try day, a program of five weeks will continue every Sunday from 19 September 2021 at 3pm.

The cost will be $20 per 60-minute session and includes a warmup, golf skills and golf conditioning exercises.

The ultimate outcomes for participants focus on health and conditioning, wellbeing and social, and skill acquisition (learning to swing and putt), all in a friendly and welcoming environment.
