The tuition focus for the first week of this trip is going to be mainly about your wedge play, which means  Pitching, Chipping and Bunkers. We will work on how to make your wedge play within these three areas as strong as possible, thus improving your scores. For those of you who choose to stay for the ten nights will benefit from on course tuition for your last three rounds. You will be split into two groups for the morning coaching sessions.

Pitching – we will work out your yardage’s from a full swing down to a half swing with all your wedges, as well as a solid pitching technique that suits you.

Chipping – the ability to hit various different types of chips with your wedges is vital in improving you’re up and down stats, this is what we will work on.

Bunkers – learn how far you hit all you’re wedges when playing from the sand is vital knowledge that we will give you, plus, a successful technique for all lies.

This resort is absolutely stunning, and I would say is the best hotel to date that I have organised a golf trip to. The hotel is recently fully refurbished with stunning pool facilities, and within a stones throw of the club house. 

This resort has an 18 hole golf course, 6 hole academy course, 2 tier driving range with a grass tee, Chipping/bunker green and 2 putting greens which makes this a perfect venue.

On this trip everyone will have a 6 hole playing lesson before each game out on the main course, and immediately after this you will be able to hit some balls on the range to work on what you’ve been taught before starting your round. The idea here is to give you key pointers that will enable you to play better golf each time. Very rarely can we run tuition like this due to different venues, so make the most of this one having a 6 hole academy course.

Due to extremely popular demand we are heading back to the magnificent Montecastillo Golf Resort. The golf course is an amazing Jack Nicklaus design, and has hosted the Volvo Masters for 5 consecutive years, with a lovely 5* hotel, making this a beautiful resort.

Pre Season MOT, this is what we are going to focus on for this trip, to make sure your game is in tip-top shape for the new season. On your first game a professional will walk a few holes with you to see what your strengths and weaknesses are, which will then enable us to come up with your personal tuition focus for the week. We will break this down into categories – More power, more consistency/accuracy, pitching, chipping, putting and course management. Later that evening you will be told your plan for the week and which sessions you should attend. This structure will really allow us to benefit your game to the maximum.

Short Game Coach & Advanced PGA Professional- Stuart Smith

Short Game Coach & Advanced PGA Professional- Stuart Smith

Without question this is the magical part of golf, and not the game destroyer that most golfers see the short game as. Nothing better than splashing out a bunker shot with spin to stop the ball right next to the hole, or hitting a delicate chip over a bunker and rolling up to the hole, and YES this and much more is achievable by you!

How? 

By gaining more knowledge, as knowledge is what lets golfers down. To have a good short game it just takes you to understand things like – 

The lie and what type of shot is achievable

What can go wrong

What is the correct set up and technique for each shot

Likely outcome

And much more 

Understand the above and you will have a fantastic short game, guaranteed!

So why am I different to other coaches?

I have never had a short game lesson, everything I teach is how I taught myself and my short game allowed me to play in a 72 hole tournament, hit only 25 greens in regulation and finish level par for the tournament! that is how confident I was around the greens. 

And over the years I developed a coaching method to pass my knowledge of the short game over to my students, which I believe will be like a light switch going on in your head, enabling you to surpass your expectations. 

The four areas I coach are – Putting, Chipping, Bunkers and Pitching.

I will teach you the full understanding of –

What the shot is

What you are trying to achieve 

What can go wrong (vital)

Correct set up

Correct technique

Correct equipment

I can run sessions on an individual basis or group sessions, and please go to the events page to see what’s on and where.

For any questions please call me on 07766 733560 or email stuart@stuartsmithgolfacademy.com

I look forward to improving your short game soon.
