FAQ's & Mythbusters:

Golf takes too long

Not True! There are different formats of golf that can cater for everyone. Golf does not have to be played in 9 or 18 holes. Golf can take as long as you need it to if that means only 1 hole then you are still playing.

Golf is not inclusive

Not True! Golf is one of the most inclusive sports in the world. It is one of the only sports that Men Women and children can all play at the same time regardless of age and ability. Golf Courses are required to have space for both men and women to play across all days of the week.

I don’t hit it very far so I can’t compete

Ok, not everybody is going to be able to hit it as far as the men and women on TV but golf has a handicapping system that caters for all abilities to ensure a level  laying field regardless of how far you can hit the ball.

Golf is not cool and for old people

Tell that to Hannah Green who has just won a Major on the LPGA Tour in the US, or Minjee Lee world number 8, both who are under 25 years old and ranked inside the top 25 female golfers in the world.

What do I wear?

Comfortable clothes and runners (gym wear is acceptable at some venues). No need to buy golf specific clothes. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen. If unsure, call the proshop for their dress code.

I don’t have any golf clubs. Do I need to buy or hire some?

No, the venue will supply everything you need for each session, just bring yourself.

I’m coming alone

Don’t worry about coming by yourself, there will be other women in the clinic you can meet and make friends with
