It is our duty of care to ensure all players are safe at all times, including before and after the sessions. Golf can be played in the rain but is it fun? No!
First Swing is about making it fun and safe. Unfortunately, rain can spoil the fun and our coaches some times deem it unsafe and First Swing will not run sessions.
First Swing HQ will endeavour to provide this information prior to the session if practically possible.
Do you have a refund policy?
We sure do. You can click here to read about our refund policy in the terms of participation.
