Golf Unlimited – BREC Golf Programming

The First Swing

First Swing is a golf development program for beginners and newcomers to the game. This includes golfers brand new to the game or those who tried early only to find they couldn’t launch. The objective is to get you on to a path that will allow you to master golf skills along the way that then permit you to transition on to the golf course, thus turning you into a regular golfer. There are three skill aspects of the golf game that need to be learned and mastered in order for any golfer to play the game well. That is not to say there aren’t more aspects, but they come later in development once the golfer establishes themselves beyond the initial stages. These primary (and fundamental) skills are Full Swing, Short Game (close to and around the green), and Putting. Golfers that invest in instruction in these aspects early in their development will find they will learn the game twice as fast as trying to learn on their own or glean off the advice of their friends or relatives. The Full Swing is your gateway into the game offering affordable & accessible venues. Clinics

The First Swing is a program for adults ages 14 and older that consists of a series of two clinics that deal with putting, short game and the full swing. You will learn the fundamental aspects of golf that will allow you to begin playing and start developing your game. BREC provides you with a PGA Professional, trained and certified, to get you going and on your way to playing regularly.  Want more information? Email Jack Terry at jterry@brec.org
