Get Golf Ready is a FUN introductory adult golf program designed to get new golfers to the game or engage a lapsed player who may have taken many years off and needs help to get going again. The program is designed specifically for the person who hasn’t had much, if any, golf experience and needs to get the basics down and then start practicing and playing. The program consists of five lessons covering all of the basic fundamentals, including full swing, short game and putting. A tour of the Talon Course, along with a talk about golf etiquette including how to care for the course, such as fixing ball marks or divots, basic rules and golf terminology will help the new player understand things such as a tee box, fairway, rough and even a putting green. The lessons are taught in small groups, are very informative, interactive and always lots of FUN!

  • Sign up as an individual or form your own private group. Start enjoying a game that will last a lifetime!
