For this course
  1. This one-day course is for higher-handicap players looking to broaden their tactical understanding and develop their technical skills. The day will include openings; game strategy with and without bisques; how to maintain and improve a four-ball break; how to convert a three-ball into a four-ball break; leaves; and planning ahead to achieve a successful peg-out. The focus will be on tips and rules of thumb which can be easily transferred into ordinary play. Plenty of time will be spent on the lawn, including a skills workshop and individual guidance and support.
  2. Players outside the handicap range may be accepted by agreement.
  3. Course run jointly by John Harris and Dave Hudson
