Get Golf Ready
Select GolfBC courses are excited to be offering novice golfers the opportunity to Get Golf Ready, an industry-wide adult player development program. Get Golf Ready, intended to bring adults into the game of golf in a fast, fun and gratifying way, offers a series of five introductory lessons in a small-group environment.
Targeting the millions of adults who have limited or no experience with the game, the Get Golf Ready program offers five lessons that concentrate on basic skills instruction and provides background information on the game’s rules, etiquette and values. Overall, participants will gain insight into techniques regarding chipping and putting, full swing, half swing and bunker play as well as the fundamental guidelines of use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course, among others. Visit getgolfready.ca for more information. Following the completion of the five-session program, a smooth transition into other Get Golf Ready graduate outings will be provided.
