Whiting Bay Golf Academy

Golf Coaching at Whiting Bay

Although we do not have a full time pro, Whiting Bay is proud to be associated with Bill Lockie, joint record holder on the course and acclaimed past coach to both the men's and women's Scottish National teams.

Bill has led previous Golf Academies at the Club which have been a great success.  This spring, he is hosting another event to spruce up your game ahead of the start of the season.

 

DATES FOR NEXT ACADEMY: WEDNESDAY 10 AND THURSDAY 11 APRIL 2013

 

Introduction to the Golf Academy

The program is aimed at golfers of all ages & abilities and is open to members of Whiting Bay and non-members alike. 

Over a full two days, you will enjoy a combination of traditional coaching and practical advice from Bill during two rounds of golf. The focus on Wednesday will be on the golf swing; driving and iron play, and on Thursday the emphasis will be on improving your game around the green; pitching, chipping and putting.

Lunches are included on both days. Also included for those attending the whole programme will be a buffet supper on Wednesday evening, featuring a talk from Bill on 'golf's mental game'.

The cost is just £70 per adult for the two day program, including lunches both days and the evening buffet on Wednesday.

If you prefer, you may elect to participate on just one day at a cost of £40 for the day, lunch included.

Limited additional tickets are also available for the buffet supper and talk for adult participants at  £12 per head.
