During the month of June (and throughout the year), Troon facilities will continue to offer new “Get Into Golf” clinics. The Get Into Golf program provides all the tools necessary to give golf a test run, including golf clubs and golf balls, practice range time, a weekly ‘intro to golf’ clinic and ending with a three-hole test run – so participants can get a taste of what it’s like to be on a golf course in a friendly, fun and non-competitive atmosphere.
"The goal with Women's Golf Month and all of our ongoing player development/”Play Troon” efforts are to grow the game and showcase how golf is fun, social and inviting," said Bruce Glasco, executive vice president, chief operating officer, Troon. "In June, many of our Troon facilities and teaching professionals will amplify their efforts with exciting playing opportunities, clinics and golf/social events geared towards women."
