The Green Team and Stardust Golf Course to host First Swing clinic in November

The Green Team and Stardust Golf Course to host First Swing clinic in November

Update: The Green Team has had a tremendous response for the Nov. 13 First Swing Event at Stardust Golf Course. Registration has been closed as all 60 spots, as well as their wait list, are now both full. 

Stardust Golf Course will play host to the popular First Swing clinic, which is structured specifically for people who are new to golf and want to learn how to play the game. Golfers who have not played for a while and want to get back into the game are also welcome to participate.
The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 4:10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, at Stardust Golf Course. The time frame has been extended to accommodate staggered registration, start times and check-out times, allowing only one group of 12 to register, start or check-out at any given time. Each group would only be at the golf course for approximately two and a half hours.
This hands-on clinic is free to SCW residents who currently hold rec cards and have not participated in a previous First Swing clinic.
The Sun City West Green Team offers this special day to encourage friends and neighbors who are interested in learning the game to come out and try some fundamental golf skills. First Swing instructions by our PGA pros and mentors will include woods, irons, putting, chipping, and some basic information about playing the game of golf.
Space is limited to 60 participants and only 6 to 10 will be put on a wait list. Registration will be open from Sept. 10 to Oct. 22 or until the clinic is full. When registration opens on Sept. 10, those interested can sign up by sending an email to greenteam@suncitywest.com with the following information:

  • Telephone number
  • Your rec card number and your spouses if applicable
  • Your email address. The same email will be used for each spouse
  • Will you need clubs? If so, right or left handed?
