No!
Coaches Inc. owns top quality equipment which we provide at no charge to new comers to use during the first few lessons. We do this to give you the chance to ‘test the waters’ and see if you enjoy golf & lesson experiences with your coach, before deciding to commit to the game. What is important is that we get you the correct fitted equipment as soon as possible, as no doubt you will want to practise & play on the course at some point, and it makes sense to be using the same product during all situations. Speak to our team about organising a club fitting session, where you will be provided with a detailed report of what you need, and why, along with quotations from Takapuna Golf Shop.

Clothing
Breathable, flexible clothing. For those who have golf shoes, it is highly recommended you bring these along, for those who don’t, running/cross trainers will do.

Hydration & food
Depending on the season, a cool/warm drink and light snack

Equipment
Bring your full set along, unless you have specific skill learning goals, and hence just bring the relevant clubs. For those who don’t have equipment, we can provide you with equipment during our lessons at no charge – please advise us asap if you require equipment so we know to take from our storage unit for your lesson.

This is up to your learning needs and what you would like to achieve
• Technical fundamentals such as the grip, alignment, stance, and swing
• How to play a variety of shots. Putting, chipping, bunkers, irons, woods etc
• Correct practice habits
• Basic rules of the game
• How to join a club

Monday – Saturday
9.30am – 8.30pm (times vary from coach to coach)

5-7 weeks would be the ‘best case scenario.’
Ultimately YOU and your choices dictate the answer to this question. The volume of skills you want to learn, to what performance level, how much you practise & the quality of this practise, the appropriateness of your equipment, how many golf theory classes you require (rules, manners, terminology & course layout understanding etc.) all affect how long it will take you to get out on the field.

We at Coaches Inc. take the attitude of we want to get you out to the course as quickly as possible – as this is where the real fun begins! It is not about ‘making your swing perfect’ before going onto the field – this will take years to achieve and become tedious and not enjoyable. Think of it like phases – phase 1, learn what you need, then get out and taste what it is like to play golf. From your findings in phase 1, come back and lets explore phase 2 development, how to lower your scores and enhance your enjoyment you experience in the game, and it goes on and on like this until you are content.

1 hour duration
Over the years we have trialled 30 min, 45 min, 1.5 hour lessons and have derived that an 1 hour lesson offers the best balance between learning, feedback, hitting shots and fun – without the risk of mental or physical fatigue.
To new golfers, this sounds like a long time, but we can assure you, once you have your first lesson experience, you wont believe how quickly the time flies!

30 min lessons
Suitable for golfers who have experience, and simply want feedback and minor alterations to their swing. This 30 min lesson can also be a good starting point for younger children who’s attention span may be limited.

Golf Course learning
You can chose from 1 hour, 1.5 hours, 4 hours – what ever the need, our educators can come out with you on the course and support you.
