How to Start

Golf is a great game for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. It’s a game for life – and it’s never been easier to get started.

There’s a warm welcome waiting for beginners and returners at golf clubs and driving ranges nationwide.

Golf takes you into the great outdoors and is often played in stunning surroundings. Whether you spend 30 minutes at the driving range, play a few holes or a full round, you can enjoy fresh air and the health benefits of regular exercise.

Golf is a game for all.  Many golfers start as youngsters but others turn to the game when giving up such sports as football, hockey or squash. Others pick up their clubs in retirement – and it’s never too late to start.

Get Started Today

The best way to start is to visit the beginner scheme map in the find a beginner session section to find a club running beginner sessions and schemes, or join the Golf Development Wales New2Golf membership today and use the vouchers at participating New2Golf Clubs. It is a great way to have a free or low cost introduction to the game. 

Our schemes are open to all. If you have a disability and would prefer to locate your nearest trained inclusive coach select the disability option on the beginner scheme map.
