The biggest difference between a consistent golfer and an average golfer is Course Management. You need to play to your strengths, if you cannot reach the green in two shots, then do not try to. Make sure you lay up into a position where you can attack the flag with your approach shot and have a 10 – 15 foot Putt for Par.

The same principle applies for the 'Short' Par 4’s. If the hole is 270 – 290 metres long, first think about the hole before you pull the driver out of your bag. There’s no harm in hitting an iron off the tee box and putting yourself into a position where you have a favourable distance to the green.

Course Management plays a massive role for the players on Professional Tours, therefore why should it be any different for you? It's well worth your time and effort to apply this on the course, so make a point of coming to the club, or speak to us today.

Make sure you don’t miss out on joining us for the British Open Golf Day, an event that we are hoping to make an Annual Date on your calendar.

Golf can quite literally be a different game


The best use of your time is?

If you’ve got some time after work, which is going to give the most enjoyment?
In truth we would benefit from them all, so why not have a “weekly workout routine” that includes
two 45-minute Golf practice sessions?

But your time is precious, so why not
make the most of your practice?

Start with an Assessment to identify the areas for
improvement, and the changes required.

Then make sure you have a structured practice plan.

Let’s assess where you are. Let’s identify the area for improvement.
Let’s give you the practice drills.
