ALL THE COACHING AND COACHING PROGRAMS FOR JUNIORS AND WOMEN ARE FREE, you do not need to be a paid up member of the club.

A special training program has been developed with three levels, and includes the Go Go Golf Certificate. Training continues on hot and wet weather days – an additional set of lessons has been designed for training in the upstairs air-conditioned function room.
