Blog guidelines

In order to keep things welcoming for everyone, all we ask is that you play by our simple set of guidelines when interacting with others on the blog.

Be nice

Commenting is a great way to connect with others and share your point of view. We love a good debate, but we don’t like personal attacks, flaming, intimidation, bullying or general rudeness. And it goes without saying that we’ll delete anything which could be construed as racist, sexist, homophobic or hate-speech in any other form. We’re all grown ups, so please be respectful, constructive and play nice!

Stay on topic

We understand that people have strong opinions about the wonderful game of golf, but it’s far easier for everyone to follow the conversation if you stick to the topic in hand. If the comments in a ‘Tiger Woods Swing Blog’ feature venture into wildly unrelated territory, then we’ll probably guide you to a more appropriate place to continue your discussion.

Be aware

Think before you share and don’t hand out personal information about yourself or anyone else. This means no phone numbers, email or home addresses or any other private stuff.

Don’t spam!

By spam, we mean comments that are clearly only made to advertise and link back to your own site, product, service or affiliate offer. These comments will be deleted, as will any illegal content.

By all means leave a link to something that genuinely adds to the conversation, but make sure you explain the context. Otherwise we may assume that it’s spam and delete it.

Get In touch

We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on any aspect of the blog so if you want to get in touch, drop us a line on enquiries@fairweather.golf.

FairWeather Golf Blog | Golf Course Challenges During Autumn

The Challenges we face during Autumn, and how to get round them.

During the weekend the Autumn well and truley arrived, especially around FairWeather Golf academies in both London and Surrey. With the rain beating down and the roaring wind in toe we thought it best to give you our Pro’s Top Tips to keep your scores down this Autumn.

Gripping down if needed.

With the ground often softer in the Autumn, some Professionals recommend gripping down on the club. When you play on a wet course, your feet usually sink in. So if

FairWeather Golf Blog | Getting your child in Golf

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. Golf is also a sport than can help children develop a variety of aspects like hand-eye coordination, strength and endurance as well as, sportsmanship, etiquette, math skills and problem solving.

Encourage a balanced development.

Remember though, if your child grows to love the

Ryder Cup Blog | “It’s happening”

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. We know that 5, 10 or 15 lessons in, our students are turning “The best lesson they’ve ever had” to the “best round they’ve ever had.” And, you know what. It’s happening now! FairWeather Golf, The RoboGolfPro and

FairWeather Blog | Two previous winners and 7 top 10 finishes | Advantage Team Europe?

Home Advantage

 The Ryder Cup is visiting France for the first time, but the European Team will be familiar with this week’s venue. Le Golf National is site of the European Tour’s French Open. That should only increase the home-course advantage and make it harder for the United States to win the Cup in foreign territory for the first time in a quarter-century.

Two previous winners

Team Europe boast two previous winners at Le Golf National in Tommy Fleetwood and Alex Noren. In addition, Noren has finished in the top 10 in

Is having the new world number one Justin Rose in your team a good thing for team Europe

Justin Rose, New World Number One.

Justin Rose has become world number one for the first time having finished second place in the BMW Championship in Philadelphia.

He is now the fourth English to achieve the accomplishment, after Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood, and Luke Donald.

His second place finish in Philadelphia comes off the back of another one a week earlier in the Dell Technologies Championship, where RoboGolfPro’s favourite son Bryson DeChambeau beat him by two shots.

Justin Rose a local lad.

Team Europe | Our thoughts?

Team Europe

The US has now named three of his wild-card picks for the Ryder cup (we nailed that one), with the fourth to be announced on Monday. So, as today is the Team Europe announcement we thought best to wrap up our thoughts on who will be going to Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.

The Captain

To be fair Bjorn is a relatively underwhelming captain for Team Europe. Do you agree? With no major wins during his career and just 15 wins under his belt on the European Tour, he now

A Day in the life: Reeves Weedon

The man who wrote the book

Reeves Weedon joined FairWeather Golf a month ago to head up instruction on our RoboGolfPro at Greenwich Peninsula.

He joined us with an accomplished CV including two publications ‘the lower body golf swing’ and ‘phase 7: powerful ball striking made simple,’ as well as becoming a master instructor of “The Golf Machine” (the PGA’s own blueprint for the golf swing) one of only two PGA Instructiors to achieve the accolade in Europe.

Today we ask Reeves a few questions about his first month at FairWeather Golf.
