Golf is a tough sport to get into.
For most people, it’s out of reach, mostly because of the cost. For those who can afford it, they are introduced to it either by their family, or friends. But what if no friends or family play golf? Then most of the time, that person will never get into the game.
But even if that person was gung-ho enough to explore it themselves, it is still pretty intimidating. They don’t know where to go, what to wear, what to bring, what to buy, how to do it, where to do it, what the costs are, who to ask, etc.
We know that not everyone is privileged enough to have family or friends to introduce them to golf, but believe everyone should have the chance to at least try it – only that way, golf can grow.
Deemples to help new golfers
Deemples is already helping thousands of existing golfers golf whenever they want to. But it shouldn’t just stop there, we want to help people get into the game too.
We found an awesome golf teaching professional in Singapore that was willing to take out 1 hour every week for a free golf clinic, where he’ll help guide and introduce you to the game. So even if you didn’t know what to do at all, now you have someone to ask, for free.
