Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to get dad and the entire family outside to have fun together on the golf course by giving him some golf lessons through the Get Golf Ready (GGR) and other Play Golf America programs.
Get Golf Ready, now in its fourth year, is designed to bring adults into the game in a fast, fun, affordable manner. It targets the millions of adults in the United States who have never played golf or who have minimal experience in the game. In addition to being an introduction for beginners, it is also a great “back to basics” refresher course for those who are more experienced in the game. GGR appeals to all different levels of ability, making it the perfect way to get mom, dad and the kids and grandkids out on the course together to enjoy the game that can be played for a lifetime.
“Golf is the perfect way to get dad and the kids out to have some fun and spend time together this Father’s Day, and the gift of improving his skills with Get Golf Ready is the gift that keeps on giving,” said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski. “It allows families to have fun together outside while learning and improving their golf game. I can’t think of a better way to spend Father’s Day!”
Get Golf Ready offers five lessons that concentrate on basic skills, instruction and information on the rules of golf, etiquette and values. Participants will learn techniques regarding chipping and putting, full swing and bunker play, as well as the fundamental guidelines for use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course. Most facilities offer the program for an affordable $99, although price varies by facility, making it the perfect gift for dads and grandfathers this Father’s Day.
There are currently more than 2,700 facilities nationwide certified to host Get Golf Ready. Moms, dads, kids and grandkids can learn more about Get Golf Ready and find a local participating facility at GetGolfReady.com. Additional free and affordable Play Golf America programs can be found at PlayGolfAmerica.com. Both sites allow consumers to find and register for programs at local participating facilities by searching with their state or zip code.
