These types of lessons are becoming more and more popular – some golfers actually preferring playing lessons to working on the practice area or range.
There are 2 main reasons why we would recommend a playing lesson:
1) If you feel like your swing has improved after working with your coach and your hitting the driver great on the range, but your scores aren’t lowering; we may need to take a look at how you are playing in ‘live play’ on the course, to identify key areas where you are loosing shots. Then we can pull together a structured programme to get you back on track!
2) After working on specific areas of your game on the teaching tee, your coach may now want to see if it works on the golf course and again, re-assess you in live play to plan for future lessons.
Typically your playing lesson will be for 9 holes and your Professional will also play; they will not only assess your game but advise you on many different areas;
