    Are golf pro’s a good value for your money?

    September 20th, 2017

    For many golfers, the prospect of visiting a golf pro is not something that is especially welcome. Particularly if you have self-taught yourself the game over the years. The fear that your chosen pro will dissolve with laughter when they see your ungainly stance and ridiculously choppy 3/4 swing does tend to put people off visiting their local pro shop for a bit of advice.

    However, if you’ve got yourself stuck in a rut and can’t seem to improve any further, then visiting a pro for some advice may well be the best investment you will make in your game.

    Attracting Youth To The Game Of Golf – The Age-Old Conundrum

    August 16th, 2017

    Like it or not, the fact of the matter is, fewer numbers of young people are being attracted to the game of golf than in previous years. It is an arresting decline in numbers and one that golf has to address if the game is to enjoy a burgeoning future.

    Of course, there are countries where this trend is bucked. In Turkey, for example, a HSBC report into the state of golf revealed that after heavy investment in youth golf and a number of incentive-laden schemes to get youngsters playing, they have managed to significantly increase the amount of youngsters playing the game.



    Mastering the game within a game: A successful guide to putting from the Masters

    August 13th, 2017

    How much time to do you devote to practising your putting? Be honest. It’s probably nowhere near the amount of time you’ll spend at the range thrashing your driver and irons.

    That’s a shame because most of the shots you’ll take in any round, will be with the shortest club in your bag and to neglect it, is in effect doing the same to a third or more of your golf game.

    A Golfing Lesson from a Disabled Golfer

    November 9th, 2011

    It is fair to say that at our local courses, coming across a fellow golfer who clearly has some kind of disability is a relatively rare phenomenon. I do know that there are locals with disabilities who play but on my all-too-rare sorties out onto the golf course to frighten the local wildlife, I seldom encounter anybody other than other able-bodied golfers.

    The one marked contrast to that occurred several years ago when my brother and I were playing our local course. We had just completed the first eleven holes and were walking across from the 11th tee to the 12th, which facilitated a five minute walk across a couple of roads (our local course is in two distinct areas, separated by a small local road). As we arrived on the 12th tee, we could see a disabled golfer finishing off at the second hole just behind us.
