Range time is great - but you can work on your game on the course too
"When a pro slices during his range warm-up, he aims down the left on the first tee; when an amateur slices during warm-up, he aims down the middle."
Not my words, but those of Henrik Stenson. I think we'd agree they ring true. For some reason, the club golfer expects perfection on the course - a trait that also shows up when pitching over water to a tight pin, and in club selection… where he invariably believes he can repeat his best ever strike with his chosen weapon.
Shot selection based on a true grasp of your ability can save shots; it's one area we address during a playing lesson. Time spent with us on the course is not only fun; it'll show you how to manage your game and the course to shoot lower scores.
Playing the course is a lost art; we can make it your strength.

According to experts, dehydration symptoms occur when the body is 1 percent dehydrated. Once these symptoms occur, mental and physical performance has already been compromised. "Mental fog, anxiety, irritability, muscle fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps, chills, and dry mouth are few symptoms of dehydration," DeBoer says. When you feel thirsty, it could potentially be too late.
During a round of golf, the average golfer can lose 2-5 pounds. Every pound lost equates to a 0.45 of a litre loss of water. At a minimum, you should be consuming approximately 1.7 litres of water per round, if not more. Due to climate and different body types, the amount of water loss can vary. In order to figure out how much you should drink, the best thing is to weigh yourself before a round, play 9-18 holes without drinking any water, followed by another weigh in. The scale will tell you the number of pounds you have lost, thus giving you a benchmark for how much water to drink.
A good rule of thumb is to drink plenty of water before your round followed by around ½ litres of water every 3-5 holes. This will provide you with enough water to keep you hydrated during a normal round. Late in rounds, you may substitute in a sports drink, which contains some essential electrolytes, but due to the ingredients (mostly sugar) sports drinks should be consumed sparingly. Any beverage consumed containing alcohol or caffeine does not count toward the ounces goal, as these beverages are diuretics and cause the body to lose more water that it gains.
These recommendations are a minimum and you should adjust based on the climate. Most people will need more than this on any given day.
