More recently, Don has designed a set of clubs that is the perfect complement to the “Get Golf Ready” Program offered by the PGA of America for new & beginning golfers. “Get Golf Ready”, a PGA promoted program, is designed to give the new or beginning golfer the confidence and knowledge to join family, friends and co-workers on the golf course. Set in the relaxed atmosphere of group instruction and taught by PGA & LPGA Professionals, students learn the basics of the game with a strong focus on breaking down the “intimidation factor” associated with the game. Basic fundamentals of playing the game are covered as well as how to navigate the golf shop, practice areas and the golf course. Sessions include time learning on the golf course to build comfort and confidence throughout the entire facility. Get Golf Ready is available at public and private facilities across the United States.
Dallas Golf Don Gafner said “The “Teeing it Up for Success” event is purely GENIUS---where else do women get to follow the game of golf, engage in the growth of the game and have fun networking----hat’
Teeing Up for Success is the theme for 2014 Professional Women & Golf Day event and is the same name as the book, written and published by EWGA Foundation “Teeing Up for Success”, released January 2014. Business women who have identified the benefit and enjoy playing golf or those who recognize they should play will enjoy an exciting experience together with influential women who desire to use golf to achieve business and life goals.

“Professional Women & Golf Day combined with Get Golf Ready is a perfect fit to not only introduce new women into the game of golf but also deepen the attachment for those who already play” noted Chuck Higgins, PGA, PGA Player Development Regional Manager. He continued by adding, “The exciting behind the scenes look at the North Texas LPGA Shootout, the opportunity to hear a great list of speakers while networking with other women professionals, plus the introduction to the innovative Get Golf Ready, makes for an afternoon any golf enthusiast won’t want to miss.”
