Our standard offerings are listed below but we would be more than happy to discuss any individual ideas or requirements you may have:

Pre-Round Roll Up Swing Check

Perfect to start your round the right way. Our PGA Professional can spend time with each player on the range and make minor setup and swing adjustments to help improve each player's round. These changes can be justified with video analysis and Trackman technology.

Longest or Straightest Drive Competition

On a Par 4/5 tee our PGA Professional will record each player's tee shot total distance, spin axis for flight shape, help with any information asked and capture a swing video of every player using Trackman technology. Once completed, the results can be given to the organiser to issue prizes and the swing video can be emailed individually to every player.

Beat the Pro

On a designated Par 3 our PGA Professional will hit the first shot into the green to set the mark. Each player from the group can then try to achieve a shot closer to the hole. Instant prizes can be awarded by the Professional to the player for a successful shot. 

In Play Equipment Test

During the round, each player will have the option to try the most modern driver or iron specifically suited to them. They can then compare the results with their current club using Trackman technology, explained in full by our PGA Professional.

Group Clinics

A great way for groups to experience golf in a fun way. Our PGA Professional can explain how to hit the shots needed for the session and help each individual while the lesson is taking place. Sessions can be structured around the number or participants to try and learn a few new techniques, all in a relaxed environment. All equipment can be provided.
