GLTC Coaching and Club Matchplay Grading Levels
Our Level Grading is designed to help our members identify relevant coaching courses and club matchplay competitions in which to participate and to find other players of a similar level with whom to coach and play. It also sets out a pathway to potentially improve your game to the next level. For Adult Coaching Groups, members are encouraged to self-rate their level as close as possible to your standard of play. Your coach can also help to advise the best level for your game. This really helps us to run the best coaching groups possible.
