To ensure that our alumni still practice the sport, YEN Golf organizes monthly tournaments for alumni inter-cohorts. We also have a virtual club that helps our alumni train at different clubs in the country.
8. What happens if one misses a training session?
In the event that a trainee misses a session, a make-up class will be offered the next week. The trainee should attend the session an hour before the official training time.
Alternatively, if there is a slot, the trainee can join the other groups.
In order to avoid an influx in other groups, we encourage trainees to commit to their selected dates and time. This will enable the trainer to have maximum engagement with the selected number of trainees.
9. What happens if one stops training midway?
The trainee will continue training with the next two cohorts without extra charges. However, if training will not have taken place with the next two cohorts, an extra 50%, of the initial payment, should be done in order for the training to continue.

We offer private sessions for a period of 8 weeks. The trainee determines the time and duration of the training. The price is determined by the location that the trainee chooses.
We offer training at Windsor Golf Club for Ksh.50,000 and at Golf Park for Ksh.30,000.
The training happens between two weeks to three months.
11. What do I need to look for in a golf kit?
Are you a novice, a mid-level player, or an experienced golfer? To succeed at the game, golfers of all skill levels need a variety of clubs.
Purchasing golf equipment is considered one of the most challenging components of getting started with the game.
The proper gear can significantly impact your progress if you are serious about golf and want to start playing. One of the elements of playing well on the course is picking out the right golf clubs.
Less forgiving clubs are needed if your swing is good, while more forgiving club designs are better if your swing requires more work.
