Get Golf Ready

What is Get Golf Ready?

Get Golf Ready is designed to teach everything you’ll need to play golf in just a few lessons. PGA Professionals will show you that there are lots of ways to play by combining fun, friends and fitness.

Each session will focus on the various golf skills you will use while playing. In addition to learning the basics, you will be guided onto the golf course to put your skills into action in a casual, friendly setting.

  • The best ways to hold the club and get ready before you take a swing
  • Getting the ball close to the hole — chipping, pitching and other shots from short distances
  • Caring for the course
  • Getting comfortable with the full swing
  • Using your irons to get the ball in the air and onto the green
  • Learning the ‘lingo’, like fairway & rough, tee box & green, divot & bunker, and more
  • Swinging your driver and other ‘big’ clubs to hit the long shots
  • Starting your play from the correct tee markers — use TEE IT FORWARD to have more fun
  • Helpful shortcuts to save time while you play
  • Linking all that you’ve learned to play a few holes
  • Tips for playing in groups, on teams and other fun ways to play
  • Getting you more comfortable on the course and where to drive the cart
  • Review of the rules and keeping score

Family Golf

BREC is installing Family Golf Tees at several of our courses; these tees are blue and gold disc set at a given distance for juniors and family members to tee off from.  Each Golf Course will have a scorecard and the means to locate the tee markers.  These tees are a permanent feature at the courses and designed to provide the family that visit our facilities a setting that permits them to mainstream into regular play.

Why is this different? Though golf is an individual sport, the concept of Family Golf offers the opportunity for family members to participate in an enjoyable outdoor experience together within a format that is set up to provide a measure of success.

For more information on Family Golf, email Jack Terry at jterry@brec.org.
