Here is your opportunity to give your child the perfect gift…

The gift of playing golf

Why should you enrol your child on golf lessons?

Some people would say; to develop a great swing, to win tournaments, to be a golf professional winning majors or simply to learn life skills.  These views should be rethought and quickly replaced with:

Children should learn to play golf simply because it’s a great game that’s fun to play with friends and family.

Great golf swings, winning tournaments, professional golf and life skills may be possible outcomes, but they should not be someone’s (parent or child’s) only reason for playing golf or any game.

Golf is a healthy, outdoor, social activity and most importantly it helps to develop self-reliance and self confidence

We know that these days youngsters have iPads, Xboxes, FORTNITE and hundreds of TV channels to occupy their time but as parents ourselves we are concerned at just how much time our children are spending on electronic devices.

We accept that time on these gadgets is part of the era they are growing up in but we want to provide opportunities for them to have less screen time and more time outdoors in the fresh air playing sport with real people.

Dunes continues to increase participation

At Dunes Golf Centre we believe that golf can be uncomplicated, interesting, and fun to learn and play, which leads to developing other physical and mental skills.

Our programmes are designed to help students learn “what to do,” (a positive) and avoids any “How to” directions that try to fix poor outcomes.  Studies into the nature of learning show that fixing is a negative approach to progress, and has never supported developmental learning.  By focusing on “what to do,” long-term learning is encoded through the students’ own reasoning and deduction skills.

Our Philosophy…

Learning should take place through play so we come up with games that are designed to engage the children in an environment that allows them to discover how they can do it. As opposed to us telling them what to do.
