Golf for Seniors – An Introduction to Golf

REGULAR golfers know what an ongoing delight the game can be – mentally, physically and socially – and a new initiative aims to spread the love.

Playing 18 holes a couple of times a week provides an ideal amount of exercise as we grow older, helps us make and socialise with new friends and of course the game offers a never ending challenge to improve.

Across NSW a number of golf clubs are taking part in the new Golf for Seniors – An Introduction to Golf program that has been developed by Golf NSW in partnership with the Office of Sport.

The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for seniors who may never have played golf to get involved with the game, to make new friends, to learn basic skills and stay fit and healthy.

The program is a six week course (1 hour per day, 1 day per week) targeted at individuals over 55 years of age that may never have played golf and would like to give it a try or possibly for those that played many years ago and would like to be involved again. The cost to participants is only $99 and includes all the equipment and instruction you need to enjoy the game of golf.

In the last two weeks of the program, participants will go out onto the golf course to play one or two holes with their professional instructor and some members of the club.

Those who know and love the game can help by getting the message out about opportunities such as this.
