Get Into Golf
At Enderby Golf Centre we want to make you feel at home in the golf club straight away. Our team of professionals are on hand to help and encourage you to get out on the course and enjoying the game as soon as possible.
Your first experience of the centre will be a taster session. Our pro team will help show you how to hold the club, how to set up and explain the basic motions of the golf swing. By the end of your taster session with the help of your pro you should be able to hit the ball in the air and be surprised by just how far you can actually hit it.
We will be covering all aspects of the game from putting, to chipping as well as driving the ball. These sessions are generally over 6 weeks and are a brilliant way to your next step on your golfing journey.
Once you have completed your first Get Into Golf Session your next step is going to be to get out on the course. With the help of your professional team at Enderby Golf Centre this step isn’t nearly as daunting as it might be. We are able to continue your golfing development, where you will learn about more aspects of the game such as bunker shots and fairway woods, as well as getting you out onto our course more regularly.
