Get free lessons under expert guidance

20:44, Feb 04 2014

Golf Southland's free Get Into Golf lessons are on again, starting on Monday, at Donovan Park.

These lessons are a fantastic way to get started in the game. All participants will be under the expert guidance of Scott Riordon, the pro at Invercargill Golf Club.

While we can't promise instant success, we can promise that this is one of the best possible ways to get a grip on the game.

Everyone at the lessons has either just started the game, or is yet to start, so everyone is in the same boat - starting from the beginning and learning the basics.

If you, or anyone you know is interested in having a go, check out the Golf Southland website for details - take a look at the Get Into Golf page.

The dates and times for the free lessons are:

Monday, February 10, 5.30pm-7pm

Thursday, February 13, 5.30pm-7pm

Monday, February 17, 5.30pm-7pm

Thursday, February 20, 5.30pm-7pm
