Learn to Play Golf in a Day

A crash course in golf coaching!
New to Golf and know nothing?
Then Learn to Play Golf in a Day!

Come and join us at Holtye Golf Academy to Learn to Play in a Day! Perfect if you are new to the game and are looking to get into golf to see what the fuss is all about!

No golf experience required and all the equipment is provided!

This fun day provides you with an introduction to the game of golf in a relaxed environment with like minded beginner golfers.

The aim of the day is to teach you the basic golf shots needed to enjoy a round of nine holes or play on a pitch & putt golf course. Rules, terminology and golf etiquette is covered. We will also explain what each golf club is designed to do and when to use them when playing golf.

What do I need to bring?

If you do not have any golf clubs we can provide them for you. If you have some clubs bring them along and we can have a look and advise on their suitability. As the sessions are held outside please bring warm/wet weather clothing if it’s inclement. Absolutely fine to wear jeans, T-shirts without collar’s is also OK! – we are really relaxed!

Do I need golf shoes?

No – although a pair of trainers is ideal as they provide support and aid balance when hitting golf shots.

Anything else I need to bring?

A sense of humour!  The day is lighthearted, relaxed & fun!
