Instruction tip clinics are 45 minutes (20 minutes at the practice facility with demonstrations and a short practice and 20 minutes on course with live application!) and cover topics such as putting, chipping, pitching, sand, full swing and more.  Game topics include a wide variety of topics, all designed to make a newcomer feel more at home when playing golf (i.e. handicapping, cart maneuvering, rules, how to's, gamemanship, etiquette and more).

Play Pointers

 

Pace of Play

Please monitor your Pace of Play so you can feel comfortable fitting into the mainstream golf culture at The Landings Club:  2 hours 9 holes or 4 hours 18 holes whether 1 of 4 players in a group. (@ 13 minutes / Par 3, 14 minutes / Par 4 and 15 minutes / Par 5). 

As part of training for new golfers, our expectation is that participants will adhere to this Pace of Play guideline in order to learn how to eventually play comfortably within the expected timeframe.  There will be regular member play following Launch into Golf tee times - thank you for respecting all golfers while learning to play the game!  To help place of play, we follow the Tee It Forward national program, as well as Par Strokes Scoring system. 

 

Scramble Format Teeing Grounds
Teeing Ground Options during a Scramble can include anywhere from 50 yards from the green to the Blue Level 1 Family in-grond tees (map at each shop or CLICK HERE), Skidaway Tees, Forward Course Tees or Medal Tees (men).
 
The Landings Golf Professional Staff hopes that you will enjoy playing anywhere up to 9 holes during the Play Day from the various tees. EVERY golfer has the right to be able to reach a par 3 in 1 shot, a par 4 in 2 shots and a par 5 in 3 shots with anywhere from a short to long club.  Many golfers remain playing where others in their groups are playing from but might be too long for them (we're all DIFFERENT!) but we highly encourage Farm Team participants to play from the starting area that allows them to reach the green in 'regulation'.  People in the same group and of the same gender can easily play from different teeing grounds. 

The 'right' way is what you make of it.  In competition, you might be required to play from a certain set of tees, but while you are learning, this progression will help you learn more quickly, play more quickly and have much more FUN!

 

Individual Play Format

Play the Wave!  Like learning any new sport or activity, breaking it into smaller and more manageable stages can help make the learning process smoother and more fun.  Learn to PLAY and SCORE the game by starting close to the hole and advancing back when scoring goals are achieved. Begin from the closest level. Play until you finish 9 holes at Level 1 at the target score.  Repeat at Level 2 until target score achieved.  Repeat at Level 3 until target score achieved. Advance to the next level.  See the cart below.

 

Group Play Format

Scramble Format from either the Family Tees (in-ground blue fairway markers, map and scorecard in each golf shop or Skidaway Tees if appropriate length where you can reach a par 4 in 2 shots easily).  Each person tees off.  Select the best shots and then pick up remaining golf balls and play from the best place.  Repeat even in putting until ball goes into hole and onto the next hole!
