Programs Benefit Junior Players Around the World and Introduce Beginners to Golf in a Fun, Affordable and Educational Way
(Scottsdale, Ariz.) – In a continued effort to grow the game of golf, Troon is launching its fourth annual “Player Development Month with Get Golf Ready” during the entire month of May. Troon daily-fee facilities, private clubs and Troon Golf Academies around the world will join together to conduct more than 500 introductory golf clinics and activities during the month of May. These clinics introduce beginners to the game in a fun, affordable and educational way and have benefited junior players around the world.
Player Development Month activities held at select Troon locations may also include free instructional clinics, family golf events, complimentary Callaway rental clubs during introductory rounds, nine-hole bounce back certificates for return visits, and more.
“We are thrilled to launch Troon’s Player Development Month with Get Golf Ready for a fourth consecutive year,” stated John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations, Troon. “By making golf more accessible and inviting, this global effort continues to have a strong impact on introducing beginners to the game and encouraging participation in future Get Golf Ready classes.”

Get Golf Ready has introduced the game to thousands of adults who have never played golf or who have minimal experience in the game. Overall, participants learn techniques regarding chipping, 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. Significant on-course learning opportunities are part of each lesson, as well as background on the game’s rules, etiquette, history and values.
Studies clearly show that playing golf is good for your health and wellness. While being outside and enjoying the sunshine and serene landscape, a golfer will have a healthier state of well-being. Playing a round of golf also burns calories and rejuvenates the mind through one of the best forms of moderate aerobic activity - walking. It is also a great way to spend time with family and friends while enjoying the outdoors. Visit www.PlayTroon.com for more information on all of Troon’s “grow the game” initiatives.
