Frequently Asked Questions
I have never played golf before, am I good enough for Get into Golf?
That’s not a problem at all! We usually have people attend who have never held a golf club before. All the coaching is very simple and easy to understand.
Do I need to bring my own clubs?
No we provide all the equipment for steps 1 and 2, although you are welcome to bring your own clubs with you if you have some. If progressing on to the Academy membership you will need your own clubs. We offer a discounted equipment pack from our Pro Shop at Tiverton, or you can usually pick up some second hand clubs on eBay.
I’m not sure what I should wear – is there a dress code?
We don’t have a dress code for our Get into Golf lessons. We usually recommend smart casual clothing you will feel comfortable playing golf in. Golf shoes are not required for steps 1 and 2, although again you’re welcome to wear an existing pair.
When undertaking the Academy Membership we do require you to wear golf shoes on the course. These can be purchased from our Pro Shop.
Does it cost a lot of money to play golf?
No it can actually provide great value for money. Someone can attend steps 1 and 2 of Get into Golf and spend just £70 for 9 hours coaching with all equipment provided! Our Get into Golf and Academy memberships are also great value offering you heavily discounted golf plus PGA Professional tuition.
Who takes the coaching sessions?
The beginners and improvers courses are group coaching sessions taken by one of our resident PGA golf coaches, either Head Professional Chris Wyatt, Charlie Sampson or Sam Chapman. The 1-on-1 lessons included in the memberships are with the Professional of your choice.
How long does it take to learn golf and join the club permanently?
The time this takes varies depending on each individual’s commitments. It usually takes an average beginner 3-6 months to become competent enough to play the golf course. Our Academy Membership then allows you to keep developing at your own pace.
