Beginner Coaching Schemes

pic

The Golf Development Wales (GDW) New2Golf beginner scheme provides clubs with funding (up to £450) to run a membership recruitment drive and aims to recruit new or lapsed members who are either new to golf or those who have played in the past and are looking to join a club. It supports individuals through coaching, playing opportunities and social events prior to recruiting them to full membership. Marketing resources and promotion via the GDW website is also provided.

The Golf Development Wales New2Golf Membership - All participants become a GDW New2Golf member, which provides the club and the individual with added benefits. New2Golf will further encourage the participant to get hooked on golf quicker through the use of coaching vouchers, insurance and much more.

Golf Development Wales will upload the dates and booking information of all the golf club’s running a New2Golf beginner scheme onto the National Golf Month (NGM) website (if they wish to benefit from the national campaign) as well as the GDW website.

Individuals will also be able to book on the New2Golf scheme via the NGM and a confirmation email will be sent to the club contact. The individuals will also be able to contact the club direct.

Here is how it all works.

 

 

Please Note: 
•    All professionals must have a current DBS (within 3 years).
•    Club Professional to accept the New 2 Golf vouchers as part of registration
     For an application form and criteria please contact Sian Simmons     sian.simmons@golfunionwales.org or 01633 436048.
