(Savannah golf lessons) Women’s Beginner Golf Classes

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

women's beginner golf class lessons Savannah

You’re invited to a Women’s Beginner Golf Class in Savannah that will be on the following Wednesdays: Wed. Sept. 18 & 25, Oct. 2 & 9 2019.

The Women’s Beginner Golf Class is a fun and relaxed atmosphere for women to learn the basics of the golf swing and the game of golf. The approach teaches you the vocabulary that golfers use while helping you learn the golf swing mechanics that fit your body. Instructors will teach you the “why” and coach your progress.

The class is a series of 4-Wednesdays (Wed. Sept. 18, 25, Oct. 2 & 9 2019) for the $129 price per person.

“Even though I have been married for 24 years, I have never taught my wife to play golf,” said Paul Johnson, the Savannah certified PGA professional who will teach the class and the Director of Golf Professional at Mary Calder Golf Club. “The reason is because she didn’t want her husband to tell her what to do. Probably why we are still married, so don’t have your husband or boyfriend teach you.”

Sign up today online here and enjoy learning to play golf!

To register, visit www.NewTwoGolf.com or call Coach Paul Johnson at 912-421-8582.
