Learn to play golf

If you are new to the sport and want to learn to play golf, our Get Into Golf programme is the perfect package for you. With the simple aim of teaching you how to play golf in a fun and informative format to get you ready for the golf course and achieving your handicap.

Learn To Play Golf

The Get Into Golf programme aims to make your progression from novice to golfer as smooth and enjoyable as can be, giving you opportunities to meet other new players aswell as more experienced golfers. There are three course sessions a week with a women’s only group as well as mixed. We offer a women’s session because we know many women who start to play golf do so in groups…so if you’re interested, get a group of friends together and come along. Find out more about our women’s golf section.

New golfers are just as important as experienced golfers at Exeter Golf and Country Club. Our long-term members are ready to give newcomers a warm welcome. After nine weeks of coaching, phase three of the Get Into Golf scheme is a three month Academy Membership. This includes use of our specialised, shorter Academy Tees, a buddy scheme, welcome evening, on-course refresher sessions with our Golf Pros and novice competitions.

New players can become fully fledged golfers with a handicap within five months and due to our emphasis on the social aspect of the game, become part of our club membership social scene too.

What Is The Get Into Golf Scheme?

Get Into Golf is a national programme bringing together the amateur governing body, England Golf, and the Professional Golfers’ Association and works to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England with National Lottery funding.

Exeter Golf and Country Club has joined the network of County Golf Partnerships offering low cost golf taster sessions, beginner courses and improvers courses across England, and supports the plan to make England the world’s leading golf nation by 2020.
