Golf Academy

Greetham Valley’s Golf Academy offers one-to-one, duo and group lessons to novices, improvers and the occasional despairing low handicapper….

We have been very pleased to welcome PGA Professional Neil Curtis, who has now been with us for over two years.  Neil has been well known in the area for many years as an excellent golf coach and has been delighted with the uptake of lessons at Greetham Valley. He always has his lesson diary to hand, so do pop into the Golf Shop to check his availability. For more details, please click the button below:

Golf Tuition Rates 2016

The Golf Academy’s indoor tuition bay is part of the newly refurbished floodlit Driving Range, which also has 13 covered bays, 3 outdoor bays and a bunker practice area. Open 7 days a week to members and non-members alike, the Driving Range is in regular use and is particularly popular just before important competitions!

State of the art range ball machinery dispenses baskets of range balls in various denominations. Users may purchase either a one-off PIN code from the Golf Shop or Reception to dispense one basket or may purchase a green Range Card to load with credit for even better value.

PIN Code Value Range Card Value 
Small (25 Balls)      £1.50 £10 = £11 worth of balls
Medium (50 Balls)   £2.50 £20 = £25 worth of balls
Large (100 Balls)    £4.00 £40 = £50 worth of balls

In addition, the contoured Putting Green enjoys one of the best views on the entire Greetham Valley complex, overlooking the valley, lakes and both 18th greens. It is ideal for tuition, practice and tweaking one’s aim after three-putting to lose a match!
