Welcome to the Pitman Golf Course! As your PGA Golf Professional, I will be partnering with the County of Gloucester and the PGA of America to bring you a variety of player developmental programs designed to increase participation among existing golfers and to introduce this game to new players of all ages and abilities.

The following descriptions offer an overview of the programs that will be featured and available to players of all levels as well as the beginning golfer;

Get Golf Ready

Designed for the beginner level golfer, this program started in 2009 with great response. This clinic series will focus on the basics of swing instruction, golf course etiquette and rules needed to start playing out on the course. Every clinic finishes with "on the course" instruction and playing. The program features a series of five classes that last one hour each and the cost is just $99!

Link Up 2 Golf

Started in 2004, this player developmental program is ideal for those who have graduated from a beginner level type program or for those with limited experience. This program features a series of five clinics that last one and a half hours long and the cost is $149 per person.

Individual Lessons

This is the traditional "one on one" session and features swing instruction geared specifically for your game. Each lesson lasts 30 minutes and the cost is $60. We also offer a series of three lessons as well as a beginner series of five.

Organized Play

These programs, called "Graduate Events", will consist of opportunities for players searching for options to barriers such as “I have nobody to play with” or “the game takes to long to play” or “a round of golf costs to much money”.

All of the Play Golf America programs will require registration since many classes will be limited in size. Contact our Pro Shop staff to review current programs being offered.

Remember, the game of golf offers a unique form of activity and sport where players of all abilities can participate together. Golf takes a lifetime to learn but is enjoyed the moment you begin.
