Opened in 1996 Ridgeway is a challenging nine-hole course,  very much the archetypal hidden gem. So much so that, despite its relatively short existence and location next to some of the bigger names in South Wales golfing circles, society golfers and visiting groups are advised to book in advance in order to secure a suitable tee time. The course is always in good condition and provides a memorable round. After your game, you can relax in the clubhouse and mingle with the locals who are a friendly bunch. A 22-bay driving range is also on site.

BEN HARVEY
I’m a passionate, caring, and genuine golf coach based at Ridgeway Golf Club in Caerphilly. I love to use everyday analogies and questions to make the technical parts of the game easier for my clients. I guide my clients in the right direction helping them use their mindset effectively to develop natural, individual, and powerful golf swings. I believe that there is not just one way of playing this game and developing great results.

I offer my services through private and group sessions at Ridgeway Golf Club or by taking my clients away on one of my game-changing golf trips! I have been playing golf for over 18 years and turned professional with the European Golf Teachers Federation back in 2013. I am now a member of the European Golf Coaches. I am passionate about travel and have been to over 20 countries worldwide playing golf from the West Coast of California to the West Coast of Thailand.

I am extremely passionate about the game of golf and it has been a large piece of my life since a young age. I like to read golf books whether they are to do with the mindset, technique, or personal development. This is to help aid my own development as well as my students. I am also in the process of writing my own mindset book. This book is full of many stories, anecdotes, and tips I have learned through my experience so far in this wonderful game.

WHO ARE THE EUROPEAN GOLF COACHES?
The European Golf Coaches is an organisation for golf professionals to learn more about coaching, development, and the coaching business. We have a network of master golf coaches who have decades of years combined experience within the organisation. With this level of experience, the EGC hold online and live seminars throughout the year to expand the knowledge of their coaches.

 PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS
I offer private one-to-one golf coaching sessions to men, women, and juniors ages 5 and up. I provide a personal and approachable golf coaching service to my clients through a half-hour or 1-hour sessions. I also offer on-course coaching sessions for my clients to help them develop not only their technique but also their mental game on the course. This may be what club to choose, what type of shot to hit, or their general attitude on the course. I offer mindset coaching, goal setting, and many other aspects of the game.

GROUP COACHING
Full DBS Check available at the Club

I also offer group coaching sessions for beginners that want to gain access into the game of golf in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. I feel that the game of golf should be available to anyone. These group sessions will be for juniors and a mixed group of men and women coming together to learn the basics of the game which include: grip, alignment, stance, and posture. These fundamentals will help structure a foundation to give you the ability to build your own individual golf swing.

WHAT EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES DO I HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR GAME?
At Ridgeway Golf Club I have a private closed-off teaching bay that allows me to teach my clients in a relaxed and uninterrupted environment. I have many teaching and training aids to help my clients improve their games and develop their own individual golf swing.

Adult 
Senior
Student
Junior
Casual
Paty 2 Play

Does the Club have an entry fee for membership?
No, there is currently no entry fee required to join Ridgeway

Are non-golfers able to use the Clubhouse facilities throughout the week?
Yes

What do I wear?
Ridgeway Golf Course has a very relaxed dress code. We just ask all customers to wear a t-shirt or golf polo, along with pants or shorts. This is a family-friendly facility, so please be appropriate.

Do I need my own clubs?
Yes, every player will need their own set of clubs. We do not have clubs for hire at the moment.

How do I get a handicap?
Having joined Ridgeway, CONGU requires that, to get a handicap, a player must submit cards for 54 holes marked by another person. The rounds must be played at Ombersley Golf Club over 9 or 18 holes. We will then adjust the returned scores so that a lady never records more than 3 over par and a man never more than 2 over par on any individual hole. The maximum handicap for men and ladies is 54. There is no minimum score required to achieve a maximum handicap.

Golf Etiquette
Do your best to keep up with the group in front of you. If your group starts to lose sight of the group playing in front of you, and the group playing behind you is right on your tail, let them “play through” as soon as it is convenient, on the next tee box preferably.

If you hit a wayward shot, and it looks like it is heading in the general direction of other people, OR you can’t see the area where the ball will land, ALWAYS yell FORE!! Fore is the universal symbol for “duck” in golf, so players know to keep their head down or take cover. Safety is just as important as anything else on the golf course.

Play “Ready Golf” to improve the pace of play. If you are ready to play your shot, and nobody else in your group is ready to hit their shot, feel free to hit your ball as long as it is safe to do so.

Keep quiet while other players are standing over their ball. Talking or laughing while other people are hitting can be distracting, and is generally considered rude.

Leave the golf course as you find it. When you remove the pin from the hole, replace it. When you have to hit out of the bunker, rake the sand. If you take a large divot out of the fairway, replace the piece of grass. If your ball lands on the green and creates a ball mark, fix it.

Be kind & courteous to your fellow players. Playing poorly or being in a bad mood is not a good reason to ruin the day of the players around you.

HAVE FUN. The more fun you can have, the more relaxed you’ll be, the better you’ll play, and the more fun you’ll have. Spread the word, it’s contagious.

What’s a tee time & how do I make one?

How to schedule a tee time
The phrase “tee time” indicates the exact time your group will be on the 1st tee box, ready to play golf. Be prepared to arrive at the golf course 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tee time to check-in, get snacks, warm-up, etc.

We recommend always making a tee time as opposed to just walking into the Clubhouse asking to play, to ensure your group can get out and onto the golf course. Tee times can be scheduled up to one week in advance at Fairfield Hills, and we generally limit groups to 4 players.

How long does it take to play golf?

Ridgeway is a challenging 9 hole course, it will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
