Ladies: Get Into Golf


The Ladies Get into Golf (GIG) twelve-month programme is aimed at ladies showing a certain level of competency when hitting a golf ball. This may be a recently acquired skill or someone who has played long ago and wishes to refresh her skills with a view to playing on a course and ultimately belonging to a club. The objective is to build good golfing skills and learn the necessary etiquette and rules associated with the game to be able to become a club member and participate in events run by the Ladies Section. Before joining Stocks Golf Club you will be given the opportunity to acquire a Congu handicap which is part of the World Handicap System.

The programme is run by Stocks Golf Club in conjunction with a PGA Professional.

Additional practice/lessons are strongly recommended to achieve most from the programme.

Absolute Beginners

Whilst not catered for within the programme, beginners are recommended to take lessons with a PGA Professional until the required standard of play is attained. Additional practice will be necessary to acquire the necessary skill level.
