James Turner Golf Beginner Academy

The ‘James Turner Golf Academy’ is aimed at males and females who have expressed an interest in golf, but wish to develop their game to the next level. It will run in conjunction with Ellesborough’s Get Into Golf (GIG) programme. Golfers who join the James Turner Golf Academy will have previously attended five sessions from the GIG programme, before commencing the Academy and individual lessons.

Once individuals have begun to grasp the fundamentals of the game which are taught in the GIG sessions, it is the perfect time to join the Academy. In order to progress at golf, individuals require regular lessons and practising sessions.

If you are not a member of a golf club you are forced to practise at driving ranges. Ranges charge on average between £4 and £5 for 75 golf balls. Unfortunately, the supplied balls are generally hard, compound golf balls, which don’t give you the true feel of hitting real golf balls. In addition, you are forced to hit off mats rather than grass. A key benefit of joining the Academy is the ability to hit real golf balls off grass. This will be the case during lessons and practising. Furthermore, joining the Academy and being able to use the club’s facilities means you have access to short game practise facilities as well; something not many driving ranges provide.

Joining the academy entitles you to the following benefits:

  • 6 x 30 minute individual lessons (to be taken approximately every 3-4 weeks)
  • 1 x 9 hole playing lesson (to be taken at the end of the 6 individual lessons)
  • 6 Months membership of Ellesborough* (to start after 9 hole playing lesson)
  • Free use of the practice area and chipping green
  • Free Practice balls (to be collected from the professionals shop)
  • Use of the changing facilities
  • Use of the Clubhouse for food and drinks
  • Dedicated Golf Professional at hand on every visit

*only can be taken once professional has deemed you ready for the golf club

The cost of joining the Academy is £381 and is aimed to last a year with 6 months coaching and use of the practising facilities and a further 6 months use of the Golf Course.
