There is a Golf Club but it is people who already play golf - however, if you call the contact person he may know of a beginner club for your level and possibly know someone who teaches. His name is Jim Annos 750-5427. I hope he can help you.

You can do a forum search on "lessons" and see some prior threads.

The best way to get started is to take some lessons, you can go to Arnold Palmers or Tree top which also gives lessons. You can take a group lesson which is more reasonable, and if you need clubs, to start out with, you may pick up a set a a garage sale or look in the classifieds in the Daily Sun. Good luck and have fun!

Contact The Villages Golf Academy regarding their:

New to Golf Program

Getting Started

Our New to Golf Program is perfect if you have never played before or if you are someone coming back to the game after a long layoff. You will be taught the basics of golf in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. You will also participate in Alumni Practice Clinics with our instructors which will have you playing golf on your own before you know it.
And thank you from the bottom of our hearts for asking and not just wandering on to a course like so many others do daily. I have a knack for having the tee time right after most of them.

Just remember you don't have to play well to play quickly - and please fix your ball marks and rake the bunkers. Do these few things and we'll all love you.
