Women’s Clinics- 5 Week Series

Clinics

Are you aware of the Women’s clinics that we offer? The 1st of the 5 Week Clinics will recommenced from Saturday 7th September and be each week as part of a 5 week series. Cost will be $140 per person or if you bring a friend you each receive a $20 discount.

Clinic Format: Each alternating week the clinics focus on either the swing at the range, or the short game. Clinics are open to players ranging from complete beginners to pennant players. Whatever golfing level you are at, the clinic will work on the parts of your game that can help you progress. You are under no obligation to come every week, we just ask you book through the Pro Shop (ph. 9497 1000) by Thursday evening, so that we can keep numbers down to approximately 6 for each clinic.

After the clinic, you are welcome to have a coffee in the Clubhouse. 

Midweek Tune up Clinic

A midweek tune up clinic will be held each Thursdays at 9am – 10am each week for $20 per person from the 21st March. This is for anyone needing a quick tune up and no requirement to attend each week and limited to 6 people.

On designated Thursdays (every 4-6 weeks) there will be no clinic but an organized game of golf with a couple of existing members to help the clinic participants progress to regular golf course play. The whole concept is to create an environment where ladies feel comfortable and have fun whilst improving their game at a low cost.
