In addition to those mentioned in the article below thanks the the Medway Board of Directors for support, all staff and all Women members for assisting in helping along the way. We are not finished yet though!
If you would like to play golf Medway has some options for you whether you are experienced or have never played.
Please read below.
Medway’s Award Wining Programs
LEVEL 1 – I have never played golf or am getting back into it after a long time away from the game.
**Clinics are back up and running as we near the end of winter. Classes will be starting up again at the below times from the 11th of August**
LEVEL 2 – I have played a bit, done some group classes in the past and am ready to try to play on the course with women of similar ability as me.
This is for you – Tuesday 10:45am Play 5 holes for $5
Each Tuesday from 10:45am, we offer new ladies the chance to play 5 holes for $5. It’s a great way to have a go out on the course and meet some new people at a similar level of golf to you.
All equipment is provided if needed and the staff in the proshop will help point you in the right direction. 5 holes will usually take you about 1- 1.5 hours, so you’ll be finished in time for lunch!
The hope is that after a few months at this level, you might be enjoying your golf enough to progress to one of the options below.
To book for the 5 for sign up as a Medway Mate and book online or via calling the golfshop on 93179031.
LEVEL 3 – I have played for some time and am now looking at possible some competition golf or at least to trial a club membership to see if I like it.
This is for you – Women’s Trial Membership
Course access is Off peak or besides Thursday, Saturday and before 12pm Sundays you have access to play. Bookings for play are required.
You may play in the 5 for $5 but don’t need to pay the $5.
You can gain a golflink handicap and compete in the club competitions if you wish including Tuesday mornings and Friday mornings.
Other women members are encourage to assist to provide you with knowledge of etiquette, rules and general club golf knowledge.
Typical time spent in this category- 12-24 months (maximum)
Membership Testimonial- Shona
I gingerly attended the 5 for 5 class 12 months ago not knowing anyone there. None of the group had much if any experience of holding a club let along playing a round. We were instantly made to feel at ease and assisted around the 5 holes with an experienced club member.
It didn’t take long to want more than the 5 holes every Wednesday, so I joined on the promotional $299 offer. This entitled me to 3 professional lessons and access to the course and before long I was playing 2-3 times per week. I now have a handicap and occasionally play in the Tuesday Women’s competition.
I am hooked on the game, rain , hail or shine and wish I had taken it up years ago. I still hit the ball sideways, but in between the odd wayward shots there is really straight long ones which keeps me coming back for more.
Apart from the game i have made a really fabulous circle of friends and enjoy the coffee and chat in the clubhouse as much as the game.
Thank you medway for making this possible.
LEVEL 4- I want to play regularly and are comfortable playing competition or at least wish to play regularly with golfers at a club level and make lots of new friends.
Traditional Membership offers- see Medway membership page for membership types.
Typical time spent in this category- hopefully for the rest of your playing days.
We are always here to help. Give us a call to explain things in more detail or register to start in one of the programs. If your on you own- don’t be concerned we will guide you along.
