Putting in the Prep

Winter in this country - especially this one - seems to last a long time!  All the more reason to make time for some practice on your own game. 

This past winter I had the pleasure of working with various golfers on my 'Winter Performance Plan' - golfers of ALL abilities.  Some beginners, some high, some mid and some low handicappers and each player got something different from it.  My plan provides a good structure for well planned out practice over the winter months and allows each player to either make the necessary changes or work on existing technique so that come the start of the season, you're not on the back-foot.

Thank you to those who have signed up this year and want to wish you all the best for the season ahead!  Now that the warmer weather seems to be with us, the season is now underway!

Details of my next performance plan will be released around September time so if you're keen to sign up, keep an eye out on my website for further details.

Have a great season folks!

Motocaddy have just released details on their PROMO running from April through to June for those who are thinking of upgrading their trolley!  They will give you £50 CASHBACK when you trade in your old electric trolley and purchase a BRAND NEW Motocaddy Lithium Trolley - a great deal!

We are all in NO DOUBT that playing golf using a power trolley saves us all energy instead of carrying our clubs on our back ..... allows us to expand more energy hitting the shots!!  Used by ALL ages of player it's an easy way to transport our clubs around the course - all you have to do is remember to charge it up!!  It obviously costs more to purchase but in the long run, a good investment and it'll help your back too!

Most trolleys fold up and are pretty easy to assemble and collapse and all are designed (pretty much) to fit in your car boot!

If you're interested in this offer, why not pop up to see us and we can assist with the trade-in!
