Value for Money

After spending a few frustrating weeks trying to fix a chipping problem I decided to get Daniel's assistance.

All can say is it was money well spent. After just few minutes on the practice green he had identified the problem and proceeded to rectify it for me. Dan was patient, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I like the fact he did not try and change too much - can’t teach old dogs new tricks but you can make them understand fundamentals.

I have no hesitation in suggesting other club members use his services.

After spending a very enjoyable hour with Dan talking all about my golf, I can recommend the experience. Coaching right here on my own course, how good is that!

Having had our first lesson with a very professional approach from Dan on chipping, we have found after a day's practice round a great improvement in our play. Knowing now what you are supposed to do improves your chipping immensely. We are looking forward to the next lesson on pitching with great enthusiasm.
