Get Golf Ready is a new industry-wide program that offers a series of five introductory lessons largely geared toward on-course learning explorations. Participants will be walked through the basics of the gameï¿½putting, chipping, pitching, iron play and drivingï¿½all while getting comfortable with our facility and their playing partners in a comfortable, small group setting. The best part? You will be out on the course from the very first day. Weather permitting, of course!

Get Golf Ready 2 is geared toward actually playing the game and lowering your scores on the golf course. With sessions focusing on the short game, full swing, and on-course management, our goal is to provide that little something extra to your golf game. Golfers looking to feel more comfortable playing on the course and beginning to intermediate golfers who are looking to lower their scores are encouraged to participate in this class.
Classes are 7:30-9:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings
Studies show that, across the board, ladies learn better when they’re surrounded by other ladies. With less intimidation from their male counterparts they feel freer to try new things—even if they do not succeed on the first try. With this in mind, we have created our Ladies Instructional League. This five-week program will feature a 30-minute group lesson focusing on one of the fundamental aspects of golf, followed by nine holes of play on the course. While on the course, you can expect to see our coaches along the way, providing instruction and ensuring safety and proper course etiquette.
Suggested age: Ladies ages 16 and older who want to learn or get back into the game of golf. Great mother/daughter activity!
Lesson Start Times:
World of Golf hosts Women’s Social Golf Mixers on select Saturday mornings throughout the season. Join us for this meet and green social with an 8:00 am shotgun start. The format is 9-Hole two women team scramble. Players may sign up in pairs or individually to be paired by the World of Golf staff. Prizes will be awarded at lunch after each event.
Our indoor range features a video swing analysis software program known as V1, which not only allows you to record your swing and re-watch it, but also offers our coaches the opportunity to overlay angles and compare your swing to that of the Tour pros. If during your session you find that you want to keep the footage of your swing, we also offer V1 Academy Locker. The V1 Academy Locker allows you to create your own personal account for V1 and gain access to footage of your swings on your personal computer or smart phone. These programs are included in your indoor range day pass free of charge.
SAM PuttLab offers the world’s most accurate and comprehensive putting analysis. The system relies on ultrasound sensory analysis to learn every aspect of your putting stroke from face rotation to vertical launch and even swing timing. One of our SAM PuttLab certified instructors will work with you individually for 30 minutes to gather the 28 most important parameters of your putting stroke. With these parameters in hand they will be able to provide you with your putting weaknesses, and offer you ways to turn those weaknesses into strengths.
