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:


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
