What makes this programme different is that it is really affordable. The sessions are in groups and a wide range of new players can learn together in a positive, fun and non-threatening environment. The second phase of the programme is unique in that it integrates the players on to the course and into the golf club by also providing basic rules/etiquette/ scoring/ handicapping and interesting playing formats to get you started in the game. This is a truly unique feature of the programme :)
