Learn to Score – SGT Levels 4-9

This program is great for a payer who has golfed a little bit or might have taken some classes. This golfer might know the fundamentals of golf and the basic rules. They have been to the driving range and can make contact with the ball and fly it in the air at least 50% of the time.

In 2019-2020 we will be in a small group at Richmond Driving Range from 5:00-6:00 pm once a week. After the year, players in level 4-9 should have a command of the proper grip and setup and why we do the things we do. They should be able to chip and pitch to the target, although distance control might be a challenge.

These players should be able to manage nine holes comfortably and know how to play with the basic etiquette and rules. Golfers will be tested every couple of months to gain knowledge through the Standardized Golf Test.
