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 £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.

MEMBERS INFORMATION - 2019 RULES of GOLF:
As you will be aware, major changes to the rules are now in play. The responsibility to learn the rules is with yourself.

New Local Rules will be available on printed sheets and new scorecards will be printed asap.

SOME OF THE LOCAL RULES WILL INCLUDE:
- Out of Bounds on the Practice Area right of the 18th fairway.
- All penalty areas will be marked with red stakes/lines.
- Embedded ball in general area, free drop. Embedded in revetted face of bunker - play as it lies or take a penalty drop: outside of the bunker at nearest point of relief not nearer the hole; or back on line keeping the flag, original position of the ball and dropping point in line; or replay the previous shot.

There are excellent explanations and video clips on the R&A and England Golf websites. We also have the new Rule Books available from the Pro Shop.

Full list of information is on the Noticeboards.

GUR areas are marked with the main areas left of 3rd, left of 11th, left of 14th greens, and right of the 6th green, plus around the new bunkers on the 17th green.

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

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.
