Golf is a combination of a mental and a physical game. On the mental side, Golf is a game that poses problems that require a lot of creative problem solving. On the physical side, Golf is a sport requiring good eye-hand coordination, technique and endurance. Golf involves a lot of walking; unless you intend to ride on a Golf cart every time.

If you’re new to the game or thinking about playing, getting started can seem a little daunting – but it doesn’t have to be. There is a pathway through from your first lessons to playing and then thinking about joining a golf club which you can take at your own pace. The Get into Golf programme is designed exactly for this.
