The academy programme and ‘get into golf’ complete beginner taster sessions

Who can join the Academy programme?

The programme is open to both beginners and improving golfers, who want to take golf seriously and would like to become a Club Member. The programme provides both tuition and playing opportunities so you become a player not just a learner.

How does the Academy programme operate?

The programme is initially for a period of two years although, if required, can be extended. Although Academy Members are not full Members of the Club, they may use the Bar, Changing Rooms, Practice Facilities and the course.

What benefits do I enjoy as an Academy Member?

What does the Academy programme cost?

£750 for 12 months with no joining fee.

What happens when I complete the Academy programme?

At the end of your initial year your Mentor and the Committee Member responsible for the Academy will meet with you to review your progress and agree the way forward. The Academy Programme runs for two years during which we would hope you would be able to achieve a handicap. For those members who need a little longer, we can be flexible.

You may apply for full membership of the club at any time during the programme once you have produced the required number of cards. You will then go through the Club’s membership process.

If you are interested in joining the Academy or simply would like to talk to someone to discuss the opportunities please contact our Assistant Secretary, Jane Edwards on 01883 712274 or email
