Free Group Sessions

These are ideal for learning multiple tips, understanding how and what to practice plus meeting others and socialising.

Group lessons involve a key area to focus on and each week there is something different covered and these are provided free every week to all members and partner cardholders.

Private Lessons

These are one-to-one and are a great way to find out how you can get better with all the attention on you.

Our PGA professionals will work with you, finding out your goals and helping to make the changes needed for you to reach them. Each professional offers a variety of packages and there is normally a discount offered when booking more than one lesson.
