This is an ideal location for the time of year with temperatures of around 23 degrees, making this perfect for golf. On this trip I will be really focusing on chipping, making sure you fully understand the technique required for different spins. With a driving range, putting green, and practice bunker near by, I can also assist you here if needed. As usual, you have the choice to play as much as you like and to attend as many of the tuition sessions as you like. There are two team games organised and we will also run daily competitions for those wishing to participate or feel free to stay by the pool. Unlimited golf, so there are tees reserved every day, including the return day  for those who don’t mind getting up early.

Fuerteventura Golf Club is the first 18 hole golf course in Fuerteventura, Canaries, venue in which the Spain Open tournament was held in 2004.
It is one of the most outstanding in the fortunate islands, designed by the renowned Juan Catarineu.
This unique complex offers an exceptional practice area, driving range with more than 50 positions, 800 m2 green putting, green approach, bunker and Pro Shop store.

The Barcelo hotel is positioned perfectly at the entrance to the golf course only 300 yards from the club house. Costa Ballena golf resort is fantastic, with the best practice facilities I have come across, an excellent par 3 course and 27 holes of championship golf, which all together make this an ideal venue for you to play and improve your golf. And if you have a non golfer wishing to join you, the hotel has a spa and outdoor pool to keep them nice and relaxed.

Tuition wise, this week is going to start with a test on your short game and again at the end of the week to see your improvement.

Tests will be –

PUTTING – Distance control and holing out from 4 and 8 feet.

CHIPPING – Landing zone accuracy and chips from around the green.

BUNKERS – Different lies.

PITCHING – To a flag from different yardages.

I am 100% confident that everyone attending this week will see their scores improve on the second test, and why? ANSWER – Knowledge. Correct understanding into each shot alone will see a huge improvement in your shots, and then of course you will have your techniques improved whilst out there leaving you with an almost impossible task of scoring lower in your second test. But as always, this is your holiday and you wish to just come along and play without participating in the tuition that is absolutely fine. We will still be around if you need a tweak.
