Help is at Hand

If you fit the description, or you know someone that fits the description let them know. Let’s take advantage of this great offer:





DATES : NOV. 19TH 26TH & 3rd Dec.

at 5.00pm - 6.30pm



The Push is an annoying shot because it is almost perfect !! The shot is mostly caused by your HEAD moving forward in front of the ball at impact. Being anxious & wanting to see where the ball is going !! The club face being open at impact & the path of the swing is travelling in – to - out, which is the intention of every good golfer. HEAD STEADY folks !!!

Good Luck & Good Golfing

Professional John Garner.
