Benefits of Golf Lessons

At Newcastle Golf Centre Dublin we have golf lessons in Dublin available from Qualified Golf Teachers. Whether you are a beginner, improver or professional our dedicated teachers / golf coach will be able to help you to become the best golfer you can be.

Golf lessons can cover areas including

  • Long Game on our 300 metre driving range with a variety of targets
  • Short Game chipping and pitching on our two short game practice areas
  • Putting on our dedicated putting green
  • Bunker play with 3 practice bunkers available
  • Take it to the course, bring the practice to the par 3 course, pre shot routines, mental approach and more

Golf instructors can help you with many things from your technique to your confidence on the course. Some benefits of golf lessons:

Grip

Qualified instructors teach either the Vardon (overlapping) grip, the interlocking grip or the baseball grip, and knowing the advantages of these and tailoring your grip to your athletic abilities can prove a great advantage to your game. A student’s hand size also means that certain grips are better suited but figuring this out for yourself can be puzzling, especially when there are so many other things to think about. An instructor will explain why you should use a specific grip and this alone can improve the power of your swing and in turn the distance and path of the ball.

Posture

It is very difficult to correct your own posture and golfers often don’t realise when they are making mistakes and that it could affect their game. Standing in the correct position and maintaining it throughout the swing can make a big difference to your game and also avoid injury. Gaining the perspective of a professional, you will get tips on keeping your posture and probably save yourself a lot of back ache in the future.

Alignment

Repeating bad swings over and over again will rarely improve a golfer’s handicap. While practicing on a driving range may build your swing into a stronger one with further distance, aligning the golf club and ball can make all the difference. Professional coaches can use a variety of techniques to help you and help you to understand the technical side of golf: it is difficult to improve your game without fully understanding which elements affect the outcome.

Swing

Lessons can range from golf club fittings to simulators and visualisation techniques. A good instructor will find the methods which suit you best and use them to describe what you’re trying to do and adapt it to multiple standard shots so that you learn to hit sand-shots, approaches and chipping as well as fairway shots and driving.

Feedback

The most important advantage of taking golf lessons is the feedback that you’ll benefit from. Golfing with a friend or work colleague will rarely lead to them giving you tips or telling you where you’re going wrong, not to mention that most players will just avoid practicing shots that they aren’t very good at to avoid embarrassment or to avoid holding everyone up. Instructors on the other hand will work on your flaws and make sure you understand where you are going wrong before giving you tips on how to improve.

Golf Driving Range Tips

Golf Driving Range Tips

With Rory McIlroy getting to grips with his golf game for the 2015 season, why not get your own game in shape too. Heres a great article with some golf tips  to guide when when practicing at the driving range.

image

Visiting a driving range can help you improve your golf game without the expense of playing a full round of golf. At a driving range, it’s possible to hit several dozen or even more than 100 balls in a relatively short period of time without any pressure. Depending on where you live, you might be able to visit an outdoor driving range all year, or you can take advantage of an indoor range during the winter.
Step 1
Stretch your shoulders, back, legs and arms for several minutes before taking a club out of your bag. Loosening the body helps warm your muscles and lessen the chance of a swing-related injury. After stretching, take several practice swings with a 9-iron. Practice swings continue to loosen your body.
Step 2
Hit a number of shots with your 9-iron, focusing on proper foot placement, hand placement on the grip, backswing and follow through. Avoid the temptation to race through shot after shot. Instead, approach each shot as though you’re on the golf course and the shot is important. Rushing yourself at the driving range can produce bad habits.
Step 3
Move through your irons from high to low. Next, select a hybrid club if you have one and then your woods from high to low. Note your distance with each club; knowing this information helps you select the proper club when playing on a course. Most driving ranges have yardage markers set up at 50, 100, 150 and 200 yards. Use these markers to your advantage as you hit each club.
Step 4
Hit at least 10 balls with your driver, noting the distance and trajectory of each shot. If you struggle hitting your driver, the driving range is the ideal opportunity to improve your consistency.
Step 5
Move to the driving range’s short-game area and practice hitting balls out of the sand and onto the green with your sand wedge. Practice chipping and pitching at the designated area, and finally, your putting on the practice green. Most of the shots you take in a round of golf are shorter shots; spend adequate time practicing with these clubs.
Tips

Aim for specific yard markers and try to place shots as close to the markers as possible. Having a very specific target will help you focus.
To simulate the routine of playing a hole of golf, tee off with a driver, hit a long iron and follow it up with a short iron or wedge.
