Free Clinic Offered at Longleaf Saturday
Scott Brazaski has made a career of helping golfers enjoy the game more by playing better.
Brazaski, a former club professional, has returned to Longleaf Golf and Country Club as director of instruction and is hoping to share his knowledge of the golf swing with golfers who feel they need improvement.
Toward that effort, Brazaski is joining the nationwide initiative of bringing adults into the game in a fast, fun and affordable way through a program called “Get Golf Ready.”
This is a series of five introductory lessons offered by PGA professionals in a small-group environment from Oct. 13 through Nov. 10 for only $99 per golfer.
The classes will be held on Saturdays from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Longleaf, located on Midland Road. A free introductory clinic will be held Saturday, Oct. 6, from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
According to Brazaski, all attendees will be invited to hit a bag of balls and learn more about the program.
“The Get Golf Ready program provides an affordable and rewarding educational experience for those who are interested in learning more about the game of golf,” Brazaski said. “The program will provide a casual, yet structured setting using fun, skill enhancement formats to help participants become comfortable on the course and enable them to continue to develop their skills as golfers.
“We encourage you to bring a friend or family member to get outdoors, soak in some sunshine and get some exercise while learning a game for a lifetime.”
Entering its fourth year, Get Golf Ready has introduced the game to thousands of adults who have never played golf or who have minimal experience in the game, through a five-class instructional program.
Overall, participants will learn techniques regarding chipping and putting, full swing, half swing and bunker play as well as the fundamental guidelines of use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course.
Following the completion of the program, a smooth transition into Get Golf Ready graduate outings and low-cost programs offered by Longleaf are available.
