About Get Into Golf
Get Into Golf is the platform that wants to help connect new golfers with local adult introductory golf programs. We want to help make the entry point super clear and give participants the easiest step into the game through a singular search engine and brand.
Each individual facility may need to deliver in their own unique way, and we strongly encourage this. Facilities can tailor to specific target groups, vary the length of programs, determine the price, and deliver activities that suit the needs of their participants.
Once facilities upload programs to the website, participants will be able to find, register and pay for them all online.
So what are participants looking for in a first experience? Well they have told us they want;
A social outlet
Time on the golf course
Plenty of hitting
An environment they feel challenged but comfortable in
Benefits of becoming a registered centre
Increase revenue for clubs, facilities and coach The program doesn’t charge or retain any portion of the program fee, it all goes back to the centre. Group lessons can be a great way to generate revenue for both the centre and coach. Insurance coverage for participants The comfort that participants are covered under a Golf Australia insurance policy from the start until the end date of the program. Access to online payment and admin portal, allowing for easy search and pay functionality Allows you to upload all your adult & junior programs with easy. It allows customers to find programs through a simple postcode search engine, and then complete registration all in a few clicks. 100% of program payments returned to your club. Program exposure through national marketing campaigns By utilising the platform your programs will be included in our year-round national marketing campaigns, exposure on a website that generates high levels of traffic, and brand recognition through other major events and initiatives. Access to collateral, resources and grants Centres get access to a range of digital and print branded marketing material. This material will reflect your target market and help you connect more deeply with future participants. Centres will also have access to participation grants given out each year that can be used towards equipment, marketing or Community Instructor training. Increased exposure to new customers Word of mouth is a powerful tool and new customers will spread this word if their experience is good. Although memberships aren’t generally on the radar after one experience, for many new golfers they will be at some point.
Register as a centre
There are two ways to get involved;
If you are a current MyGolf centre you can LOGIN to your dashboard and register by clicking on the Get Into Golf tab

If you want to discuss the program before joining, then please reach out to one of our friendly staff. You can find a list of contacts on the contact us page.
What if I have my own curriculum? Remember the program isn’t about rigid rules and structures. We have a manual full of fantastic ideas but if you have a curriculum that supports the philosophies of Get Into Golf - and it’s tried and tested - then continue to use it.
Are there any fees to be involved? No.
How long should a program run for and how much should I charge? The program is super flexible and the facility can choose to run the program for any length of time and charge any amount they see fit. In our program centre manual we have some recommendations on length and price.
Do I need to provide anything to the participants during the sessions? With a good portion of your participants just starting out, we recommend you have some clubs they can borrow for the lessons. A key element of the program is to make sure that participants get plenty of time to socialise with other participants, so we also recommend you provide the opportunity for them to do this at the end of each lesson.
Do I need to provide anything to the participants after the sessions? The journey of your new participants shouldn’t end after the first Get Into Golf program finishes, this is just the beginning. If they have enjoyed the program experience they will be eager to keep going. We recommend handing out any information about how the participants can continue playing golf at your facility before the program concludes.
