Get into Swing Fit

Want to be involved in an exciting, world-first women’s only golf participation program?

Swing Fit, a national program to encourage female participation in golf, is here – and there’s never been anything quite like it.

The program is fast, friendly, and fun. Most sessions last around 75 minutes, and cost just $20 a visit. You’re sure to have plenty of laughs and make some new friends.

Don’t think that Swing Fit is just a traditional golf lesson or clinic –it’s not. Swing Fit is all about game-based learning. One minute you’ll be hitting golf balls, then the next, you’ll be doing simple yoga and pilates-style exercises. Think social and fun!

Swing Fit is suitable for beginners wanting to learn the basics of the game in a relaxed and welcoming environment, and current golfers who wish to get ‘fit for golf’. Swing Fit is designed for women of all ages and abilities, so why don’t you give it a try?
