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.

The Islantilla Golf Resort Hotel enjoys one of the best golf courses of Huelva, and only a 40 minute transfer from Faro. 27 holes surrounded by typical landscapes of Costa de la Luz and 3 golf circuits available of 9 holes each. This was host to the Tour España Masters in 1995, and in 2000 it was listed as one of the 100 best golf courts in Europe by the magazine Golf Digest.  The Islantilla Golf Resort is a 4-star hotel located in Islantilla, between Isla Cristina and the marshlands of Piedras river, offering a 27-hole golf course with extensive practice facilities.

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

Sunday 7th

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

Group A – Own ball front nine, Texas Scramble 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.
