BREC Golf Programming – BREC Golf

Seeking help with your golf game?

Learning how to gain access on to a BREC Golf Course for the first time?

Wanting to get involved with other golfers on a regular basis?

BREC Golf Courses are equipped with a staff that can help you with that.  Staffed with a PGA Professional, Jack Terry, BREC seeks to provide a quality and enjoyable experience for all who enter on to our facilities.

Jack Terry, BREC’s resident PGA Teaching Pro, will be conducting golf clinics and on-course training beginning in February and running through June to get you golf ready. The clinics and on-course training will be divided according to ability levels.  They are open to all, 14 years and older.  Below is a brief explanation and early schedule.

Click here for a more detailed outline of programming. This document will answer most questions you have, without having to call for more information.

When registering for a given clinic, it is best to determine your ability level first.  Here are the four levels that will help you decide which clinics to sign up for:

  • Beginner Level: This is for golfers who are in their initial stages of taking up the game.  You may or may not have gotten any instructions, but you are very new to the game and are still trying to figure out what the golf swing does to get the ball up into the air and with any distance. 
  • Want to Break 100: This is for golfers who have taken up the game and generally can swing and hit shots into the air… maybe not real far… but you are advancing it. If your score is typically between 105 to 120, you need to sign up for this clinic and training.
  • Want to Break 90: You may have been at this for a while, you can get decent distance and for the most part have a sound putting and chipping game, but getting to the point where you can eliminate really bad holes is elusive to you.  You may practice a good deal, but progress is slow and tedious, if any at all. 
  • Want to Break 80: This is for the serious golfer who has broken through and shot in the 70s before, but can’t seem to do it consistently.  You hit quality shots, putt and chip fairly well, and work hard at your game on the practice tee, but seem stuck on bogey golf. 
  • Is it a good idea to sign up for all the Clinics/On Course you can, one right after another?  No, that is not a good idea.  Reason being is that the learning process involves trial and error (or better, cause and effect), and the golfer needs to comprehend how they learn.  A handout is given to each participant that covers Pre-clinic, the clinic event, post clinic, then the on-course session, and then the post on-course session.  A player will need to space out their development into at the very least three to four week periods.

Which then leads to this, when you sign up for a clinic, you need to realize you are signing up for a two-segment session.  In other words, you sign up for a clinic, then follow the hand-out for the following week, and then you will go on to the golf course for training.  Again, you have to take both. Sorry, no signing up for a clinic and not the on-course, or vice versa.

Clinic Sizes and duration:  We keep each clinic limited to 3 participants at a time.  Therefore, we anticipate these sessions will fill up super quick

On-Course training:  Following your clinic, exactly one week later you will be taken on to the golf course.  You will have a hand out that will be preparing you for this, so no need to be intimidated.  The process of learning will expand for you when you are taken on to the golf course following a learning session; You will basically play a round of golf guided and coached by the same instructor at the clinic.  It will be a 9 hole adventure with some review after; a total of 2 ½ hours. 

How to register:

  1. Determine which clinic and subsequent on-course session you wish to take. Each Clinic + On Course is coded.
  2. Contact Jack Terry via email at jterry@brec.org with your request – using the code.
  3. If you want to also schedule an additional clinic, submit a second request in an email to Jack Terry as well.  Due to demand, no more than two clinic/on-course at a time.

Payment and Fees:

  1. No pre-payment is required; but, if you visit any BREC golf course ahead of time to purchase a  BREC Gift Card to pay for the sessions, you receive a 10% discount for any session you attend. Not to mention, a gift card for lessons is a great gift.
  2. Payments for clinic or for on-course training are paid the day of the session at the respective golf facility where the session is being held.  Your name will be given to the Pro Shop staff who will accept your payment.
  3. Clinics + On Course Fee
  4. General Public: $25 for the clinic + $25 for on-course training:  Total $50
  5. Seniors (59 and older): $20 for the clinic + $20 for on-course training: Total $40
  6. 10 % discount if paid by BREC Gift Card
  7. Four days before your sessions, you will be sent a reminder; be sure to respond back.
