At Broadwater Park we provide coaching for all abilities. Being a public facility many people feel that they can start their golfing life here in a relaxed and nonintimidating environment. The covered driving range and Par 3 Course offer the opportunity for new golfers to learn and home their skills before the challenge of the larger course. For those experienced players, it allows a brush-up on technique.
Our coaches are PGA qualified. The Professional Golfers Association is the most recognized and respected body for golf with golf clubs throughout the world.
