Our Get into Golf membership is aimed at helping you take those first steps towards playing the game.
We know all the stereotypes about golfers and clubs – but times have changed. Welcome to the modern game, where you can play a few holes after work and grab a well-earned drink with your friends in the clubhouse afterwards. As a Get into Golf member you are entitled to discounted club hire, which is available from each of our Pro Shops, we recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment.
It’s not all older players, diamond jumpers and checkered shorts – golf is played by celebrities, sports personalities and Jimmy next door. Why? Because it’s a great way to relax and enjoy some ‘you time’, while taking in the fresh air and spectacular views.
Golf is a fantastic way to burn calories and stay healthy through a low impact yet highly energising sport. So, jump off the sofa and put your laptop away. Come and get involved in a sport that you can truly enjoy for life.
What is the Get into Golf membership?
The Get into Golf membership offers a really nice introduction to the game. You don’t need your own clubs and you don’t need to have any experience.
There’s individual and group coaching sessions which provide you with a fun, relaxed environment to try golf at your local course. Our PGA professional will take you through the basics, giving you the confidence to get out on the course and ready to play more regularly with friends and members.
You’ll also get free golf on four courses; Seafield, Fullarton, Dalmilling and Maybole between April and October.
I played a little bit when I was younger – is Get into Golf for me?
Get into Golf coaching is really aimed at beginners. The sessions are designed to help people new to the sport, pick up the basic techniques, skills and etiquette they need to get out on the course and enjoy club membership.
Maybe a couple of lessons with one of our professionals will help blow the cobwebs away.
I used to play other sports – will golf satisfy my competitive edge?
If you have that competitive streak in you and you’re looking for a new challenge, then golf could be just your thing. The Get into Golf programme will provide you with all the support you need to earn your handicap and we’ll even introduce you to one of our affiliated golf clubs to get you playing in club competitions.
So go sink your first birdie putt, fist pump the air and high five your playing partner. Don’t tell us you don’t feel your heart beating and your head buzzing. It’s better than any goal you’ve ever scored!
Is playing golf expensive?
Golf doesn’t have to cost the earth. Golf South Ayrshire has created flexible payment options and introductory membership offers which make golf a really affordable sport.
Can I come along to coaching sessions with my friends?
The more the merrier! Golf is definitely a social sport – so bring your friends and family along to enjoy the coaching sessions with you. Our clubhouses are a great place to relax and spend time with others. Whether you pop in for nine holes at the weekend, or drop by for a bite to eat and well-deserved cold one on a Friday – you’ll soon find out why thousands have already joined us.
