I have so many people every year ask “Hey Pro, how do I get my wife into the game?” “Hey Pro, my son just got out of college and now he is interested in golf. How can we get him up to speed?”

Ring Ring – Carthage Golf Course this is Garrett. How can I help you?

Customer – My name is Tracy. I have never played golf before. I started a new job and have been asked to golf with customers and in some charity scrambles. I don’t know anything about golf but it looks fun.  I would like to get started in golf. I have heard Carthage Golf Course has some wonderful instructors. What is available at Carthage Golf Course?

Garrett – The best option for new golfers is our Get Golf Ready programs. The cost is $99 and includes five group lessons. We will cover everything to get you on the golf course playing and feel comfortable in the golf course environment. If you don’t have equipment we will be happy to provide it during the instruction.
