We often get asked how frequently should you take golf lessons when someone books a programme or block of lessons. The answer is in the following questions..
What are your goals?
What is your realistic time frame?
How often will you practice?
How structured will your practice be?
How often will you play?
All of our programmes that we set are incredibly flexible. We have some students that are retired with a lot of time to practice and we have some that work 60+ hour weeks. Having the same programme to suit both of these students is destined to fail.
If for instance your goal is just to improve your driving, then having golf lessons congested without structured practice in between isn’t sensible, but if your aim is to improve in more than one area we can focus on different parts of your game from one session to the next. Focussing on your driving one session followed by short game in-between before retuning to driving the session after. There are a lot of areas where you can continually improve in golf.
The aim of golf lessons is for you to improve, so finding a balance that sits in with your lifestyle and keeping the enjoyment is key. There is little gain from having a golf lesson when you feel ill prepared, but if you are getting your practice, understanding and have some feedback for your coach then get those sessions in!!
We offer many avenues for you to improve your game, Not many are aware that when we structure a block of 6x 30 minute lessons we can taylor this time to who is in front of us. These 30 minute sessions can be simply taken individually or to work on specific areas of your game.
Say you are a beginner, intermediate or more experienced you may benefit from having a 30 min session broken down like this…
