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.

Short Rules Presentations -
Thursday 14th February - 2.30pm
Wednesday 20th February - 7.30pm
Possibly one or two other dates in March.

Please try to attend one of the above. The afternoon session is mainly aimed at ladies who play on that day but anyone is welcome to attend. I will do the 14th session on my own and the presentation will be simple, short and with time to ask questions. The 20th February evening session will also be presented by John Moorcroft, who is a qualified Lancashire Rules official and referee.

Can you please let Pro Shop staff know of your planned attendance at any of the above dates. In the meantime, you can view the R&A website to research new rules and download the RULES APP to your phone, which is a great tool to keep with you at all times.

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, and right of the 6th green.

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 – the range will be restricted to maximum 200 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.
