Ladies Get Into Golf

OVERVIEW

The aim of the Ladies Get into Golf at Stocks programme is to provide a two year framework to progress novice golfers to becoming members of Stocks Golf Club with a CONGU handicap.
It is run by Dave Marsden in conjunction with Stocks Golf Club.

STRUCTURE

Ladies Get into Golf at Stocks is a two year programme. The year starts on 1st April. Application is made online (www.stocksgolfclub.co.uk) or via the secretary at Stocks golf club or with Dave Marsden PGA Professional. (www.davemgolf.com)

Year One is for the novice golfer.
Group lessons (6-8 ladies) will take place every other month with Dave Marsden, the day and time being dependent upon availability at Stocks Golf Club. They will also receive five individual lessons.
Lesson fees are built into the annual fee for the programme and paid direct to Dave Marsden upon joining. We will communicate all fixtures online, by email and via a What’s App group text message.

New members may join the programme at any time during the year, they pay the annual fee and will be provided with catch up lessons both individually and within a group depending on when they start through the year.

The objective in year one is learn the basic rules of golf and golf etiquette, how to putt, chip and hit a range of clubs consistently. (As a guide they should be capable of 45 shots over the par of the course or better to move to the Intermediate group). The beginner Ladies will be offered a half price brand new golf club if they haven’t got equipment at the start or they can borrow clubs for the first 3 lessons.

Members of the programme will undergo regular assessment by Dave Marsden throughout the year. Once a certain level of proficiency is attained the programme member may be invited to move to the Intermediate group during the year and definitely at the end of year one.

Year Two is for the intermediate golfer or someone who has participated in the year one programme and who wishes to attain a CONGU handicap and become a Club member. Each member will be allocated a Mentor from Stocks Ladies Section.

Group lessons (6-8 ladies) will take place every other month with Dave Marsden, the day and time being dependent upon availability at Stocks Golf Club. The programme member and their Mentor will also receive five individual lessons.

Lesson fees are built into the annual fee for the programme and paid direct to Dave Marsden upon joining.

The objective during year two is to be able to play 18 holes of golf, acquire a greater understanding of the rules of golf and golf etiquette, be able to hit all clubs fairly consistently, submit a card close to 36 over par or better and gain understanding of the Ladies Section of Stocks Golf Club.

Members will undergo regular assessment by Dave Marsden throughout the year to ensure that progress is being made.

A programme member may become a member of Stocks Golf Club once they have submitted a card of 36 over par or better. A card will be signed by a member and consist of either a full 18 holes on one visit or two separate 9 hole visits where the full course is played. Should this be before the official programme end, there will be a pro-rata refund of the Year Two Stocks Golf Club fee set against the cost of membership. The coaching fees paid at the beginning of the year will remain and the programme member can continue with the lesson schedule until the end of the year even though they have joined as a member.
