PALS - Playing And Learning/laughing Simultaneously

2018 PALS Golf Program

Dear Winchester Country Club Member,

The PALS program combines golf clinics and other golf activities that will help novice to intermediate skilled adult golfers become more proficient with the game. PALS activities will be conducted in a relaxed, stress free atmosphere so participants can maximize their potential to learn, enjoy the game of golf, and have fun at the club. The PALS program will cover all aspects of the game, providing a broad foundation of golf knowledge. PALS is an acronym for “Playing And Learning / Laughing Simultaneously”. No golf experience is required for the PALS program and new golfers are strongly encouraged to participate.

The PALS clinics will begin on Thursday, May 10th and conclude on Thursday, September 6th. Clinics will be held on various Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. The program schedule is detailed on the opposite page. Clinic topics (Short Game, Full Swing, On Course) will be rotated and will cover a general fundamental of the game with each session. The clinics will also provide information on the equipment needed, care of the course, etiquette, pace of play, and basic rules of golf. The clinics will provide knowledge on a broad range of golf fundamentals granting the participants the opportunity to get experience with the game on the practice facilities and on the course.

The scheduled PALS clinics will be at done as a complimentary service for those Winchester Country Club members that have golf privileges. Winchester Country Club members that do not have golf privileges are able to participate in the clinics for a fee of $15.00 per participant, per clinic. Properly introduced guests of Winchester CC members may participate in clinics, provided availability, for a fee of $20.00 per guest, per clinic. Winchester CC members without golf privileges and guests will be able to participate in PALS for one calendar season. After the one season of participation, members without golf privileges and guests must obtain a WCC membership with golf privileges to continue in the PALS program. Adult participants should be novice to intermediate golfers with limited golf experience or a USGA Handicap above 40.

We are eager to grow the game of golf. We look forward to the opportunity of helping interested Winchester Country Club members gain golf knowledge and skill through the PALS program.
