Occupying approximately 27 acres and available to members and visitors alike, our Practise Ground is the envy of the majority of Clubs. A purpose-built tee enables golfers to practise their drives and long-irons and a separate area of the tee accommodates short-iron play to target greens. The home-made, fully drained green together with bunkers allows perfect pitching practise. A small charge for the practise is payable by daily members who have paid the visitors’ fee. This is also the base for our Teaching Academy where our Teaching Professionals can analyse your swing in an indoor facility. The new Indoor Golf Studio has recently been established and incorporates the latest technology to enable the Club’s resident PGA Teaching Professionals to analyse in detail a players set-up and swing.
