Golf is a game for everyone and can be played with the entire family. It also allows us to get some sun and fresh air in a natural environment helping to reduce stress too. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and golf is a great way to keep our minds active and allows us to get plenty of gentle exercise. Golf is an inclusive sport and a game for life, whether playing 2 or 3 holes with friends or 18 holes, you are a part of the Golfing community.
Get into Golf for Women is a 6-week introductory course for women to learn to play golf. The program consists of 6 x 1-hour lessons once a week with 15 minutes of social interaction at the end of each lesson.
The Get into Golf for Women pilot program will be run across golf clubs in the Illawarra.
All programs are delivered by a PGA or WPGA Professional. If your local Golf Club does not have a professional, Golf NSW will work on finding a PGA or WPGA professional to accommodate the program.

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.
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.
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.
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.
