For those keen on a deeper understanding of the fundamentals, we are offering an optional afternoon session with PGA Pro Ian Paul. He has a passion for coaching and has completed courses in Natural Golf and Golf Machine Instruction. Ian's mission is to teach golfers to get their swings on plane with correct impact alignments.  Recognise the physics and geometry of the golf swing, understand the cause and effect of each action and begin to see the effort you put into practise pay off. Understanding the fundamentals makes lasting improvement easier to achieve.
