Can I have one lesson first before I decide which package to go for?

Of course, you can. Have one lesson and then decide how you’d like to proceed from there. I’m confident we’ll do a great job and you’ll want more knowledge and understanding!

I’m nervous that I’ll be out of place as I’ve never tried golf before. Can you re-assure me please?!

The Golfschool is the best club in the area in this respect. It’s friendly, welcoming and we have purposely positioned the facility as a family friendly golf environment open to all ages and abilities. So, you won’t get snooty looks, tuts if you don’t hit the ball very well or feel uncomfortable. We Promise!

Will I need to practice in between lessons?

Absolutely. Practicing what you’ve learnt in an effective way is more important in order to achieve your goals than just about anything else. We’ll give you information on the best way and where to practice during your lesson.

Can I share a lesson with a friend?

Yes, you can both book onto the same session if the space allows and there is availability – it’s great to learn with a pal!

Do I need to bring anything?

If you have your own clubs, bring them along even if they’re old. I’ll provide modern, more suitable equipment if needed. Bring an open mind, stacks of enthusiasm to learn our great game and a positive attitude (“I CAN do it!”)

What do I do on my first visit to the golf club for a lesson?

Try to get here early and meet in the waiting room at The Golf school.
