*The spring sessions of Get Golf Ready have been cancelled and all refunds have been processed. All players that registered for the spring sessions will have priority registration for the summer sessions. We will be contacting you by email. Given the golf professionals teaching schedule, we are aiming to offer Get Golf Ready starting in early July. Thanks for your understanding of this situation.
We are proud and excited to offer Get Golf Ready at Sawmill in 2021. This program is an introduction to golf for beginners!
Get Golf Ready is designed to teach adults everything you’ll need to play golf in just a few lessons. Kevin Niznik, PGA of Canada Professional, will show you that there are lots of ways to play by combining fun, friends and fitness. Each session will focus on the various golf skills you will use while playing (see below). In addition to learning the basics, you will be guided onto the golf course to put your skills into action in a casual, friendly setting.
If you have any questions about Get Golf Ready, please email Jeremy.
