Golf Clinics

An affordable way to take a lesson. Bring a friend or come on your own. Our lessons cater for all skill levels and age groups. Our group golf clinics are conducted in a relaxed, social environment which is ideal for those who are new to the game of golf, or those wanting to improve on their existing skills. Each clinic is conducted over 1 hour, with a maximum of 8 people per group. All range balls and equipment (if required) is included in the price.

Intermediate Classes
Conducted by Gavin Coyle, the intermediate classes are designed for the social or regular golfer with a handicap who is seeking to improve on their existing skills. These clinics cover all aspects of the game, including short and long game, in greater detail. For more information regarding dates and times call Gavin on 0403 348 719 or fill out the enquiry for below.

Shortgame Clinics
The shortgame clinics cover everything from putting, chipping, pitching and bunkers. This is the main area of the game that can save many shots off your score each week, yet it is the least practiced!

Fullswing Clinics
The fullswing clinics are designed to help you get off the tee straighter and longer, and to hit those iron shots into the green closer. These clinics cover everything from grip and stance, to short and long irons, to fairways and your driver.
