“Get into Golf” with Denham Golf Club Academy
Denham is delighted to offer an Academy programme for Ladies and Men to “Get into Golf”. This programme is ideal for beginners as well as a refresher for people returning to golf after a long break.
The aim of this programme is to help you reach a position where you are comfortable playing golf with other people, joining in Club competitions and getting fully involved in all our activities, both on and off the course.
So as you move through your time at Denham, you will hopefully be spending less time on the range and using your lessons on the course to learn the rules and course management with the aim of reaching a standard where you can attain a handicap, whilst finding out what makes golf such a compulsive and infuriating game!
COST – currently £495 per year.
- Academy Group lessons run on a weekly basis on Friday mornings from 11am – 12 noon from April through to September inclusive. Lessons run by our friendly Professionals rotate through the various aspects of the game, so if you miss one there will be another one on the same aspect in a few weeks’ time. There will also be lessons on alternative Saturdays for working members of the Academy.
