Driving Range at Prairie Sports Village

Have Fun, Exercise, Socialise and Learn a New Skill

Golf Academy

You will meet new people and have fun while learning the basics of the game from PGA professional, James Goddard.  He will take you through a step-by-step guide covering everything from grip and posture to how to swing and use the different types of club. It doesn’t matter how good you are or if you prefer to learn slowly or fast, you can simply take it all at your own pace.  You may then want to progress to a follow-on course for a further six weeks. Players often meet like-minded people on beginner courses who then continue together and meet up for social practise sessions, such as on the driving range.  The key is to learn in the best way that suits you and to do it in your own time. Some people take longer and may want to repeat the course several times.

Six week block with James Goddard – ONLY £39

Juniors – Saturday 10.30-11.30am.
Ladies   – Monday 7.00-8.00pm

Start playing

Once you have learnt the basics of the game, you might want to head out onto the golf course with some friends and start playing a few holes. Starting with just 9-holes is ideal and Towneley Golf Course has a choice of pitch and putt, 9 hole or full 18 hole golf courses. If you don’t have equipment you can hire some from the club until you have your own. The club also has thriving sections for men, ladies, seniors and juniors who are always willing to help and support new golfers by taking them out of the course and introducing them to other like-minded golfers.
