Profile of a beginner golfer

Beginner Clinics are for those who are just getting started and would like to get a good taste of what golf is all about. These golfers have never touched a club before. They have no training and no past experiences. These players want to learn enough basics to not be embarrassed at the company tournament or with friends. Players with any past golfing experiences are recommended to take Intermediate clinics or private lessons for best results.

  • I had lessons from both Gary and Kyle at Scarborough Family Golf. They made the lessons a lot of fun while being very informative, positive and constructive. Thanks for all the training.

  • When I took my first lessons from Gary, I had never swung a club. He made it fun for me to learn and I am definitely not a natural. Gary is patient and good humored. He is able to tailor his instructions to the individual so that even in a group, you are getting “private” lessons. I am amazed at my progress and will be signing up for another session with Gary.
