Note from Murray with regards to coaching:


Re the individual slots I believe some of the feedback was that the lessons the last time at 30 mins was a bit on the short side for some. So, this time round I can offer either a 30 minute slot or a 1 hour slot for those who want more time. Lessons on long game will be in the net, and this time I will have a Trackman 4 unit which tracks both clubhead and ball and simulates a ball flight onto an I pad screen. (This is a big benefit to see what the ball flight would be when hitting into a net). A lesson summary and video e mail review of the lesson is included. It is an amazing piece of kit (used by tour pros and Sky Sports on their tour event broadcasts) and will help users understand how their swing changes affect how the clubhead behaves thru impact and the resultant ball flight. So, charges for lessons would be 30 minute lesson with the Trackman unit at £30, with an hour lesson at £60. I have kept the prices the same as last year but this year there is the added benefit of Trackman. Short game and putting lessons also available on the putting green and chipping green.
