Player Development Month

In a continued effort to grow the game of golf, Troon is launching its third annual “Player Development Month with Get Golf Ready” during the month of May. Troon facilities and Golf Academies will join together to conduct more than 500 introductory golf clinics and activities this month. These clinics introduce beginners to the game in a fun, affordable and educational way and have benefited junior players around the world in years past.

Participation in most events cost only $20 for adults, while juniors 17 years of age and younger are free. Clinics will run for a minimum of 60 minutes and will keep a ration of no more than 10 students per instructor. At the conclusion of each clinic, participants will have the opportunity to continue their pursuit of the game by registering for a Get Golf Ready program, which includes five additional instructional classes starting at just $99.

Get Golf Ready has introduced the game to thousands of adults who have never played golf or who have minimal experience in the game. Overall, participants learn techniques regarding chipping, putting, full swing, half swing and bunker play, as well as the fundamental guidelines of use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course. Significant on-course learning opportunities are part of each lesson, as well as background on the game’s rules, etiquette, history and values.
