The Get into Golf Programme commences again in 2019.
It has been very successful since its commencement in 2016.
It appeals to people who would like to take up golf but for whatever reason, it just does not happen. The Get into Golf Programme provides Golf Clubs, Golf Bag and balls.
New members are given a chance to learn the basics of the game as well as the rules and etiquette of golf. There is also a follow up with a buddy system where new members can go out with a club member to play the course.
