“Get into Golf” at Stoke by Nayland Golf Open Weekend 8th/9th April!

The annual Golf Membership Open Weekend at Stoke by Nayland will be held on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April from 10am – 3pm on both days. Golfers of all abilities are welcome to come along – whether you are beginner wishing to get started in the game with lessons, or a seasoned player who would like to take advantage of the “No joining fee” and “14 months for the price of 12” membership deals on offer over the weekend.  There will also be free golf clinics given at the Driving Range from 10am and 12 noon on both days, and complimentary 9 holes of golf (confident players only) on Sunday from 10am.

Stoke by Nayland Golf Club has also launched a new initiative this year to encourage aspiring golfers of any age to get into the game of golf - and to ensure that they’ll have fun whilst they learn!  The aim is to encourage anyone to join in at any level of the golf “escalator” that suits them, and then progress upwards at their own pace, to get even more enjoyment both from the game itself, and from being part of a club.

Offering the finest coaching facilities in the area – which include a 20 bay covered driving range, which is a Regional Performance Centre for England Golf, extensive short game practice areas, and two championship golf courses – as well as four highly qualified professional coaches, Stoke by Nayland provides the best possible environment and opportunities for Getting into Golf.

So in addition to the Open Weekend activities there will be rolling 4 week coaching courses starting on both weekdays and weekends for adults, ladies and juniors from beginners upwards - so please visit the website to find out more!
