So, don’t miss out on a chance to transform your short game, as well as having a great time with other golfers at fantastic venues just like many other golfers already have:

“Fabulous trip, impressive golf course, and it was great seeing old friends and making new ones. Lots and lots of laughs !!! Well done Stuart.”
“Great golfing holiday! First timers on one of Stuart’s “short game” improvement holidays and came away with so much more understanding of all aspects of chipping, pitching and putting! Couldn’t wait to get out and put into practice what we had worked on.”

Stuart says “Ryder Cup Style Format – This trip is definitely for those of you of that like to have a competitive edge to a trip mixed with tuition.

This trip will have tuition laid on for those of you that wish to take advantage of it in the mornings, and then the Ryder Cup style game will be in the afternoons.

On the day of arrival there “might” be a chance of nine holes, but I won’t be able to confirm this for sure until nearer the time. On the evening of the day that we arrive, we will make the draw in front of the group to see which team you will be on, with a maximum of only 12 golfers per team. Each evening both teams will announce the playing order to see who is playing against who, and on which course. During the week there will be one practice round, followed by four rounds of Ryder Cup style pairs matches over 18 holes and one singles game over 9 holes, which will determine the winners. The format for the games will be – Four ball better ball, foursomes, four ball better ball, foursomes, singles and each match will be worth 1 point.

Tuition – There will be time each day to have your any part of your game checked and tweaked and a full days advanced short game tuition in the middle of the week.”
