LESSON INFORMATION:

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 £80, 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.

2019 RULES OF GOLF:
As you will be aware, major changes to the rules came into play on 1st January. Short rules presentations will be set up over the next couple of months - dates and times will be published here next week. There will be some on Tuesday afternoons, Thursday afternoons and a couple of evenings.

The unofficial winter comps in January and February will allow us a ‘trial period’, but by the time of the official competitions from mid March, you will need to be quite clear on the new rules, otherwise you will be caught out by players or opponents who know these rules better.

There are excellent explanations and video clips on the R&A and England Golf websites - also see the video clip in this Newsletter. We also have the new rule books available from the Pro Shop.

THE COURSE:
Full list of information is on the Noticeboards.

Please note - 17th tee for men is now on fairway playing as 200 yards. This is to help avoid divots in fairway and pitch marks on the green. In competitions, play as a par 3. The Ladies tee remains as normal.

GUR areas are marked with the 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 - 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. Chipping green and driving nets remain open.

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

During 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.
