Worplesdon Ladies Academy Homepage
Welcome to the Worplesdon Golf Club Ladies Academy homepage. Here you will find all of the relevant information needed during the academy. The 2019 academy kicks off in May and will run for roughly 6months. During this time you will participate in a number of group coaching sessions that are scheduled weekly as well as 3 individual lessons. The main objective of the academy is learning whilst integrating into the golf club so once ready, we encourage you to play with some of the existing lady members, socialise and utilise the facilities we have as best you can.
Below are some links to the group coaching session dates, a link to book your individual lessons and if you require any of our other services.
Please use the 'Group Coaching Sign-up Form' to indicate which group coaching sessions you will be attending.
When ready to start booking individual lessons, please book at your convenience using the link below. Booking is nice and easy on our online booking system so it would be preferable if you used that rather than booking through Andy.
Attire - Ladies golf attire, please ask if you ever have any questions. Appropriate footwear is important to stop injuries, golf shoes or suitable trainers are fine.
