Links, Newmarket Golf Club is keen to invite new beginner lady members to join our club. We realise and understand that golf is not an easy sport to learn so we have created a 3-level academy programme to get you started.


Level 1 - (Full)

"Balls & Bubbles" Ladies’ Taster Session - Swing into golf

Thursday 13th September 2018 – 4pm – 6pm     
Sunday 16th September 2018 – 2pm – 4pm       

Experience our "Balls & Bubbles" taster session, designed for ladies who like a cheeky glass (or two) of bubbly, and want to give golf a go in a relaxed way. Golf is a social sport. But why take our word for it when you can join in the fun, take in the gorgeous surroundings, meet some of our lady members and see for yourself?

Meet your group of ladies on the putting green and our fun golf Pros will take you through a fun skills session designed for beginners. Your only target is to have fun and toast your success with a glass of bubbly. All equipment is provided (but feel free to bring your own). There's no dress code except please wear trainers and just one rule: enjoy yourself!

Spread the invite amongst your friends! Please click here to download our flyer and email it to your friends.

Places are limited to 24 per session so book early to avoid disappointment.

To book yourself onto "Balls & Bubbles" call the office on 01638 663000 or email office@linksgolfclub.co.uk

Whether your aim is to get fit (golf burns around 500 calories or 11-12,000 steps per round!), meet friends or try something new, Links, Newmarket is the club for you.

Cost: FREE

Level 2 - (Full)

Once you’ve attended our "Balls & Bubbles" session you can progress to our pre- course practice level, which acts as a stepping-stone to full play on the course. Level 2 of our Academy Programme is the perfect route from novice to player. You’ll be attending group-training sessions between October and March together with other ladies you met at the "Balls & Bubbles" session, and we’ll allocate you your very own golf buddy, who is a proficient lady member of the club. Your buddy will be there to help and guide you during each level of the programme, and if you decide to become a member then she’ll act as a long-term mentor.

So, what’s on offer in Level 2?
• 5 x one-hour group training sessions between October and March with one of our Club Pros on the following dates:

Lesson 1     Thursday 18th October - 1.30pm      OR     Saturday 20th October - 2.30pm

Lesson 2     Tuesday 20th November - 1.30pm     OR     Saturday 24th November - 2.30pm

Lesson 3     Tuesday 11th December - 1.30pm     OR     Saturday 8th December - 2.30pm

Lesson 4     Tuesday 22nd January - 1.30pm     OR     Saturday 26th January - 2.30pm

Lesson 5     Tuesday 19th Febraury - 1.30pm     OR     Saturday 23rd February - 2.30pm

The sessions will cover several topics, including explaining when and where to use a wood, iron or wedge; how to grip a club; and stance and swing development - everything to help you gain the confidence to go it alone. The sessions are all about having fun with people of the same standard.
