Learn to Play Program & Membership


Golf can seem terribly complicated to the uninitiated. So many rules, so many different kinds of clubs. And then there's the lingo: birdies, bogeys, bump-and-runs. At the Russley Golf Shop & Learning Centre, this may be the language we speak every day, but we also know it's a language that can scare prospective golfers off before they ever pick up a club. 

That's where our Learn to Play comes in. To those who are new to golf, our goal is to shepherd you through this uncertainty. How do you swing the club? What club do you use for chipping? When do you know that you're ready for the golf course? The whole point of Learn to Play is to guide you step by step through the basics of learning the game to a point where you feel confident stepping out on the course for a game. Learn to Play combines a quality 10-week coaching program run by a PGA coach with a 3 month membership at the Russley Golf Club.

Learn to Play is $550 and includes:

  • A 10-week private lesson program (10 x 30 min private lessons) on the driving range covering the basic fundamentals of the game (putting, chipping, pitching and full swing). If you have friends also interested in starting golf and would like to learn together, we also offer semi-private programs for 2-3 participants.
  • The 3-month membership generally starts at the completion of the program. If you are feeling confident about your game during the coaching program and would like to start playing on the course earlier, this is also an option. The Learn to Play membership offers afternoon access to the golf course from 1pm onwards Sunday to Friday with access from 4:30pm on Saturdays. This membership includes an NZ Golf handicap.  

We can assure you that what seemed complicated is really as simple as getting out and having fun as part of our Learn to Play program & membership at Russley. Now is the time to get your start in the game; contact the friendly team at the Russley Golf Shop & Learning Centre (ph. 358-4612 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
