Here’s a few things in your control that will help you feel confident and ready as you hit the driving range or golf course this season.
First things first, tacos aren’t *always* included in your program. CORE PROGRAMS and SOCIALS will include tacos or a GC for the golf course restaurant. Skills & Drills Classes and Communi-Tee Times do NOT. That’s because these are intended to fit into your busy lives and we wanted to provide our community with a few experiences they could come for some practice and continue on with their busy lives! That doesn’t mean you can’t go hit the patio after and order with your group, it just means you get to be bold, seize the opportunity, and coordinate with your group when you arrive. It’s as simple as asking “Margs tonight anyone?!” at the beginning of class!

Golf is tough. Seriously, even the Pros have humbling moments.
Being successful in the sport starts with a positive attitude and an acceptance that you’re going to have to put in the work and practice if you want to improve. Our ecosystem of programs was created to support your long-term development. A few lessons will get you started, but it won’t take you from rookie to Pro overnight.
Great swings take time, so we might as well enjoy the ride!
Here’s a few tips to help you get the most out of your Golf & Tacos experience:
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
The dress codes at our host golf facilities and courses vary from relaxed to fairly strict, but most often it’s more relaxed.
You’ll be most comfortable in your favourite golf outfits or athletic clothing that you can swing in comfortably. Golf shoes are not mandatory, but we recommend athletic shoes to all the sessions.
If you’re looking for an affordable and comfortable golf shirt with a collar, check out our pals at Full Wedge Golf and use code ‘GOLFANDTACOS’ for 20% off both men’s and women’s shirt styles.
Strict dress codes (mostly at private courses and country clubs) do not allow leggings or super short skirts, and your shirt must have sleeves or a collar. You’ll be most comfortable in your favourite golf outfits or athletic clothing.
PREPARE FOR THE ELEMENTS
Mother Nature can be moody, prepare accordingly. It’s always a good idea to check the forecast in your area so you can make sure your ready–lessons will go on rain or shine (okay, extreme weather aside).
GOLF LESSON CHECKLIST
BE ON TIME
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your lesson so your group can start on time. You will need time to park, perhaps use the washroom (which might not be right beside the lesson location), or even have to shuttle to the practice area at some courses. When you arrive late, the coach has to go back and get you up to speed which takes away from your fellow golf gals in the session. We get that life happens, but please be sure to select a program that will allow you to consistently arrive on time each week.
Golfers MUST be at the tee box at least 10 minutes before your tee time. We recommend arriving at the golf course no later than 25 minutes before your tee time so you have time to pay for your greens fee and get ready. If you want to warm-up, eat, grab drinks then you’ll need to give yourself even more time.
Each of our events will provide more detail on required arrival times.
