IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT!

We are now in a busy time of year with most members wanting to play the course whenever possible. Can you please help to enable others to play as follows;
a) Book tee times and joining others if you are a single or two players.
b) When booking, insert all names of players on the booking or leave other spaces open so that members can join your group.
c) If you are playing as a 2 ball at a busy time, then it will obviously be slow for you if you are amongst 3 or 4 balls.

The computers in the Men's and Ladies Changing Rooms can now be used to book or view tee times through the BRS system. If the Pro Shop is busy or closed then you can book there.

BRITISH SENIORS OPEN QUALIFYING – A few volunteers needed please!
We are hosting qualifying for this event, which will be played at Royal Lytham from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th July 2019. The qualifying here at S&A is on Monday 22nd July over 18 holes.

The R&A have asked if we can provide a few volunteers to work on a 3 or 4 hour shift, for various duties;
1) Practice range management.
2) Ball spotting and using red/green flags to indicate free to play on a few blind tee shots.
3) Scoreboard.

We need around 18 volunteers through the day, and lunches and refreshments will be provided. If you can help, please sign up on the Main Noticeboard.

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.
