Winter Survival Tips with Reeves Weedon

You’ve never had it better when it comes to playing during the winter. Courses tend to be quieter; You can get in some unique practice that you wouldn’t experience in the summer, and best of all, it might save you a bit of money (if you can brave the elements).

First things first.

First things first. To survive your winter golf, make sure you play realistically. “It is unrealistic to think that you are going to go out there and shoot under your handicap when the greens are rubbish and

However, depending on your needs and your level, real change in your swing that is true and correct is hard.

You don’t have to get worse to get better. 

It’s a common misconception that you have to go backwards and be prepared to get worse while making changes to your swing. The point of changing things is to make you better. If they’re making you worse, they’re not the right changes.

The Challenge

This week our blog focuses on one of our most recent clients at Greenwich Peninsula. We have removed his name for anonymity but his story is one we have heard many times. This client is a 5 handicapper and has

Your Child and Golf.

For some keen golfers, there is nothing better than spending a Saturday afternoon with your Child playing one of your favorite courses. Realistically this is a more than achievable past time for most. Getting children out in the open is a great way to support both body and mind.

It’s Happening.

“It’s Happening.” Those two words our Pro’s often receive on a Sunday night after “The Greatest Round They’ve ever had.” We often receive these kind of text messages! But, seriously, we love receiving them so don’t stop. These day’s we don’t even need to ask “What is happening?”, we just know.
