AWGA Golf 101/201 Lesson Program

This is a program designed to introduce women golfers to the game or help people who haven't played for some time to get back in the swing. Key relationships are established between the women who play regularly at a specific golf course and the LPGA or PGA Professional at that same course to help these women stay with the game. Since 2006 the program has graduated over 1,400 students.

Through this relationship, the golf teaching professional and the experienced women golfers (Ambassadors) work together to create an environment where women with little or no experience can come out and learn everything from how the game is played, to swing and playing basics, to establishing relationships within the golf community that will help them feel comfortable navigating the golf course on their own. The program fee is $220 for all six sessions. If you have golf clubs go ahead and bring them but if not don't worry, you'll be able to borrow some. All you need to bring with you is your enthusiasm to learn the game of golf!

Golf 101 includes:

  • Six lessons, one hour each
  • Lessons taught by an LPGA/PGA Teaching Professional
  • Learning how to chip, putt, pitch, full swing, and hit bunker shots
  • AWGA Ambassador support to teach the rules and etiquette of golf
  • Practice time and on-course instruction and play
  • 1 year Recreational Membership to the Arizona Women's Golf Association, which includes:
    • Newsletters and other publications to keep you informed about the game of golf
    • Access to AWGA tournaments and seminars
    • Friendship & camaraderie with other lady golfers
    • Discounts from AWGA partners
    • Advice and interpretation of the Rules of Golf
