Naas Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
Happy New Year to everyone and what a great week we had with the weather being kind and conducive to playing some golf. The week was topped off with another successful Tapas lunch on New Year's Day. Well done to Paddy Kavanagh and everyone involved.
Im sure your New Years resolutions are in full swing and we are all now walking and running off the turkey and mince pies. With a view to your golf why not aim this year to make your strength in 2017 what was your weakness in 2016. Putting is the quickest way to lower your scores and my Assistant Brian (or the boss of the moss as he has been knicknamed) has been having some great results with some of you with the flat stick.
From January, Brian will be available on Tuesday evenings for putting sessions at the coaching studio. Times are available between 5pm and 8pm, these are 30 minute sessions but if you would like to bring a friend these sessions can be done over an hour. The cost is €30 per person and bookings can be made though the pro shop. These classes will take place every Tuesday and you can follow up at any stage for a refresher session. If putting is your weakness this class is for you!!
Don't forget the draw for our indoor winter competition takes place this Thursday. There are still some places available if you and a friend would like to book your place, details below....
To launch our indoor coaching studio this winter we are running a "Winter Indoor Challenge" open to members only.
The format is as follows....
- Foresomes format. (any combination of gender or handicap)
- 9 Holes.
- 16 pairs entries available from today, first come first served.
- Draw will take place on Thursday, 5 January.
- €50 per pair to be paid upon entering for competition.
- Draw for first round (8 matches) winners will go forward and play off. First round runners up will play off for a "runners up" competition.
- Every pair is guaranteed two rounds.
- First round to be played before end of January.
- Matches to be arranged with the pro shop.
This will be great fun and another way to get your game sharp for the new season, get to know other members and enjoy some golf in the cold wet months of winter.
Our simulator has 16 courses available. We will have a choice of 4 courses for you to choose from and the most popular course based on entries will be the one we will use for the competition. Im sure you will have heard of some of them, Torrey Pines, The Belfry, Bethpage, Gleneagles to name but a few.... all on your doorstep!
On Saturday, 11 February I will be hosting a long game masterclass from 10am-1pm. This is for golfers of all levels and the objective from the class is to simplify many of the concepts and ideas you may have tried in the past that you now realise do not work consistently for you.
Each golfer will receive their own practise plan which will be relevant to their game and I encourage both ladies and gents to attend. We will unlock some of the keys to creating more distance and achieving a more consistent strike, two areas of the game that trouble many golfers.
The session will take place in the range and at our studio.
- Maximum of 5 people.
- Range and studio. Golf balls included.
- Individual practise plans.
- Discover how to take your range game to the course!
- Lunch included.
- €150 per person (can be purchased as a voucher)
- €125 members rate.
Bookings through the pro shop or you can contact me on 0868326676.
