 What exactly is “Golf Programming” and how (and why) do I get involved

Golf Programming is basically a description to encompass instruction, coaching, and participating in golf style events.  Without such programming, the public has no means to enjoy the sport or grow in their experience within the game; which is why BREC creates it to be of service to our public.

  • To enjoy golf and its many benefits, it is best to get trained and coached in the game. Therefore, BREC has established programming that involves opportunities for you to gain individual instruction, group, and on-course instruction.
  • To be trained well, BREC provides you a PGA Professional that can meet your golfing needs both on the practice tee and the golf course. Not only does this involve the golf swing, but the proper equipment you will need, and getting past any intimidating barriers that would keep you from taking up the game.
  • Creating peer related events that will enhance your involvement in a life-time sport. Whether this is with play days, league play, or tournaments; we will steer you toward involvement that offers recreational benefits, mental challenges, and opportunities to make new friends.
  • Who is our audience? We aim at ages from 8 to 108. And anybody from any background. There are some aspects wherein we have limits (for ages 6 & 7) due to policies established by the Commission.  Be sure to ask the Golf Development Manager about those policies.  

Instruction

Whether you are new to the game, or have been at it a while, gaining instruction can only help.  Admittedly, learning and improving in this game is highly challenging, thus seeking help is a smart and efficient move.  And there is a smart and efficient way to go about it.

  • Evaluate where you are in your development (beginner/newbie; wanting to break 100; wanting to break 90; wanting to break 80; looking to be a champion). We get players that say they want to be more consistent, but it is best to describe your development by how long you have been playing and what scores you normally shoot on 9 or 18 holes.
  • Get the right start or right fit for your development

How does one go about scheduling a session with the Pro? 

  • Look at the schedule below and see what times are generally available for instruction. This is basically a guide to let you know when times of instruction are being conducted. We are not utilizing on-line registration.
  • Since demand is high, we recommend that you then contact Jack Terry via email at jterry@brec.org ; include your name, if for a junior also include age, if senior over 59; include contact information; and a short reason why you are seeking a lesson. For faster response include your text number. 
  • Once the email is received, Jack Terry will respond in short fashion; be sure to put in the subject “Lesson” and then your name 
  • If you are uncertain at this time about reserving a lesson, but have questions, send an email with “Inquiry lesson” in the subject. 
  • Once confirmed, your lesson will be finalized. Interested in more than one lesson? State this in your original email. 

What all is entailed with setting up instruction? 

Whether getting started or wanting to improve, the golfer needs to have an idea how to go about doing this. 

  • Establishing contact with our Pro and scheduling a date is a good first step; Hopefully, you have checked out the rates (above) and where the instructions will be performed (listed below). 
  • Each individual session is one hour in length; the golfer will determine if they want the lesson to cover only the full swing, short game, or putting, or a combination of each within the one-hour time frame. They need to determine if they wish to schedule more than one session. 
  • Instruction is generally one on one , however, if two or three golfers would like to get the same lesson at the same time, that can be arranged as well.
  • Payment, in any form, is made to BREC in the Pro Shop prior to the lesson. Gift Cards can be purchased for lessons from any BREC Golf Course and redeemed at the time of the lesson in the Pro Shop. 
  • Don’t have any clubs yet, no problem, we will provide some for you to utilize. Simply let us know.
