                                                                   Clinics and Player Education & Development Opportunities

There are a number of clinics and seminars scheduled throughout the early season. Clinics usually last one hour, limited to 10-12 participants, and are appropriate for golfers of all ability levels. The content covered is narrow and the purpose is to offer an inexpensive way for members to get a basic overview and/or review on how to play a certain shot.  A clinic is designed to accommodate more participants and less individual instruction than a group lesson.  The seminars will cover Rules and Etiquette and our GN21 Handicap System.

 

Unless otherwise noted, prices for clinics are $10 for LPGA Amateur Golf Association members and $15 for non-members. Non-members may only attend three LPGA Amateur Golf Association events.

 

Depending upon the time of the clinic, you may want to stay at the course to play a round or stop in the restaurant for lunch, dinner or socialization.
