The Saturday Social Golf Days are a relaxed, low-stress way to get comfortable playing the game of golf.
With an emphasis on Fun, Learning and Socialising, this is the perfect way for those who have felt intimidated by the game to get comfortable on the course.
It is the ideal place for beginners getting started in the game, former golfers who are just getting back into the game, current golfers who would like to introduce new friends or family to the game and anyone who's main emphasis is to get out on the course and enjoy the game without the stress of serious competition golf.
These days are hosted by Certified PGA of Australia Member - Paul Williamson, who has over 25 years of experience helping everyday golfers to enjoy the game more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the Saturdays Social Golf like?
We play a team Ambrose format to once again reduce the stress of having to hit every shot well. If you don't know what that means, don't worry, we will explain it all to you on the day.
This format is very social and gives everyone a chance to try all shots in the round without the pressure of having to hit a good shot every time. The rules and etiquette of the game are very relaxed during these days on purpose.
While serious golfers are welcome, the purpose of the days is to create a comfortable learning environment for beginners or those wanting to get more comfortable on the course. If serious golfers wish to join in with friends or family, then it will be their job to help TEACH the new golfer's safety and good behavior on the course.
There are plenty of other competitions for serious golfers to play elsewhere and Paul will be more than happy to point you in the direction of these.
Who are these days for?
This is for:
- Anyone who has some basic skills in golf but hasn't played much on the course.
- Graduates of any 'Get into Golf' programs or clinics looking for somewhere to play. - Anyone who has the basic skills of hitting, chipping and putting. - Current golfers who have friends or family just getting into the game and want to introduce them to the course and the game in a less intimidating way. - Anyone who just wants to have fun on the golf course and competition golf is of no interest. - Individuals, pairs and groups of friends are all welcome.
