7 nights at Elba Palace 5* Fuerteventura half board
Unlimited Golf at Fuerterventura GC including trolleys
1 range token each day
All tuition
MAX 24 GOLFERS
The course does not offer electric trollies but do have buggies and I would need to know ASAP if you require one.
This is an ideal location for the time of year with temperatures of around 23 degrees, making this perfect for golf just as it was in February 2018.
For this trip I have priced up staying at the Elba Palace 5* as the course is on site and is only one of three, 5* hotels on the island. The prices do reflect this, but I can ask for a price of you wish to stay at the Elba Carlotta 4* as this will be a cheaper option.(just have to use the courtesy bus to get to the course) I have not included flights or transfers in the price, as this will add approx £100 per person above what you can get flights and a taxi for. (Hotel is 10mins €15 in taxi) I have looked at potential flights and you can fly from either Stansted or Gatwick on the 2nd February and the price starts from £116 pp return.
This week will be all about how to – Shoot Lower Scores, and for that to happen you will be working on the key areas in your game, which are – Alignment, Driving and 80-50 yards and in, improve these and your scores WILL improve.
ITINERARY
All tuition will commence before play and you will be split into two groups of 12. One group having the lesson 9-10am and the other group 10-11am.
Saturday 2nd – Fly out to Fuerteventura and if arrive in time play 9 holes.
Sunday 3rd – ALIGNMENT – I am going to make you work in pairs so that you can check each other constantly (and whilst playing), to make sure you are aimed correctly. I am going to give you a routine that IF, you stick to, then you will see an improvement in all your shots when playing.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11.04am – Texas Scramble which will allow you all to have your alignment check whilst out playing.
Monday 4th – Driving – Going to work on improving your impact position for this club which will help with distance and accuracy, can’t win a game from the trees!and extra distance is always welcomed.

Wednesday 6th – Chipping – A quick check on set up before going in landing zones. What they are, where they need to be, how much run you get etc. An understanding of landing zones will transform your chipping, giving you much more success from around the green.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11.30am – Social game.
Thursday 7th – Chipping – You will learn what the 7 Steps To Heavenly Chipping are, and in turn then be able to decide which is the correct way to play every chip. The ability to make a correct shot assessment is vital in playing a successful shot.

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.

On this trip I will be focusing on improving your short game shot selection when out playing which is so important to you improving. I will also help you to execute your short game shots better, and give you a better understanding of how the ball will react. With improvement in those areas you will be sure to see an improvement in your scores.

The first two days will see you split into two groups, Group A and Group B with the following schedule

Wednesday 3rd

Group A – 10.00am playing 18 holes

Group B – full days tuition on all 4 areas of the short game

Thursday 4th

Group B- 10.00am playing 18 holes

Group A – full days tuition on all 4 areas of the short game

The next four days will see the group back as a whole for tee off times, but you will only be playing with golfers who were in your group on the first two days. This will allow me to spend an equal time improving you, when out playing. Your front and back nines will be very different, with you playing a Texas Scramble format on the nine holes where you will be receiving tuition, and playing you own ball for the other nine. Tee times will be from 9.30am daily.

On your tuition nine holes, I will be working with you to improve your shot selection, club selection, landing zone, setup, and of course…….the result.

Friday 5th

Group A – Texas Scramble front nine, own ball back nine

Group B – Own ball front nine, Texas Scramble back nine

Saturday 6th

Group B – Texas Scramble front nine, own ball back nine

Group A – Own ball front nine, Texas Scramble back nine

Group A – Texas Scramble front nine, own ball back nine

Group B – Own ball front nine, Texas Scramble back nine

Monday 8th

Group B – Texas Scramble front nine, own ball back nine

What you can expect to come back from this trip with, is a sound knowledge of setup and technique for the short game shots, but more importantly the ability to correctly assess and pick the right shot each time, which in turn you will you a greater chance of executing each time, and getting the result you desire.
