Beginners Lessons

A Life Enhancing Experience for All

Becoming a member of a premier golf club such as Retford can be a life-changing experience for lady golfers, gents and also younger members. The mix of physical challenge and mental discipline that golf involves helps people from all walks of life to acheive, stay healthy and be proud of themselves.

Get fit! Play golf

Golf is good for you. Regular golfers live longer and have more active lives than the general population. Golfers also thoroughly enjoy themselves whilst enhancing their health and longevity.

A round at Retford Golf Club is a 6+ mile walk, which includes a number of moderate hills, and that burns more than 1,500 calories for most people.

Buggies are welcome at Retford and paths around the course help older members to keep active and competitive into their eighties.

Get Started!

We run a series of Get Into Golf lessons, aimed at beginners, with all equipment provided.  We will take you through all aspects of the game during five, 1 hour group lessons.

For those who would then like to take things further, we offer a range of flexible membership packages and we have a comprehensive mentoring program to help new members become integrated into the club and find like-minded people to play with.

To make a start, simply call our Coach, James Freeman, on 07704 016 082, or email
