Golf School Reviews

  • James Andrews Golf School – Awesome!!
    Quite frankly, if you are considering doing this, just do it!! You won’t regret it!

    I was a grumpy, 3 hour late arrival on Friday for a 2 half day course on the Sat and Sun. I was greeting with an ever so friendly reception and that set the tone for the whole weekend.

    The staff were all friendly and amazing, James actually greets you on the start of your course and checks how you are during it too, the food is fantastic, the hotel was fantastic (had air con in my room!!) the facilities are fantastic, the course and environment were beautiful and the tuition was top notch too

    There was no need to venture out from the site in the evening, even though there is plenty you could do, as you socialise with all the other students and members alike.

    I had a great time, it’s genuine value for money over having say 8 separate hours over 8 weeks, and I am 100% going back! Thanks to all of the team for a great weekend!

  • Our pro golfer was excellent! I went to the school as a beginner and came away with the confidence to play on a par 3 9 hole golf course.

  • My two full days of teaching were in a completely different league to those lessons that I’d had elsewhere and I am already looking to book a follow up for a few months time.

    If you are thinking about booking a short break at the golf school – stop thinking – and just do it – you won’t regret it – other than wishing you’d done it a lot earlier —

  • This was the Second time i have been on the three day Golf school and was worried that it may be structured the same as the first. on Meeting my coach my worries were set aside as he tailored the three days around all the items i had issues with. There where four in our class but the coach had a very good way of making you feel that you were receiving one to one tuition. i am not sure how he did that but i appreciated it.

    well done six out of five or eleven out of Ten you take your pick.

  • A fantastic week on a beginners golf course , must admit was a bit nervous at first but the golf pro puts you and your fellow colleagues at ease straight away . Constantly helped all the way through showing where there where any flaws via video , during the week went through many aspects and rules of the game and came away with a greater understanding of the game and confidence to play . I will definitely return in the future to hopefully help improve my game . The golf club itself is very laid back and welcoming to all !
