LESSON INFORMATION:
Individual 40 minute lessons are available at £30 or a course of 3 for £80. Juniors are priced at £20.

Many players say that ‘inconsistency’ is their main problem. How do you become more consistent? Everyone has good spells in a round, good days in a year, but cannot maintain it for longer. The more comprehensive lesson below allows more time for discussion, full analysis and complete understanding of your own strengths and weaker areas.

Half day (approx. 3 hours) at £90, or £50 each for two players. This is a detailed lesson that is tailored to your main requirements and will include: swing technique, short game, putting, strategy, shot selection, best practice drills for you to maximise your own time, and understanding your own game.

The course - The full list of information is on the Noticeboards.

GUR areas are marked with main areas left of 3rd, left of 11th, left of 14th greens.

Buggies – please keep to paths and fairways, not in the rough or heather.

Work on 1st and 18th holes has started and these holes are likely to be closed for most of the winter. Updates when necessary, or check with the Pro Shop.

Practice area – for the next couple of weeks the range will be restricted to maximum 140 yards. Strictly no shots beyond this for safety reasons whilst work is ongoing. The chipping green and driving nets remain open.

Sunday mornings, a member may only sign in one guest, maximum, before 12.30pm.

As we approach the shorter winter days, we have less tee times which allow players to complete their round. Please do not book tee times unless you are sure you will use the time. Please cancel tee times as soon as you know you won’t need them. Please join up with other members if you are a single player or two players.
