Flightscope Added to the Lesson Experience

We have added the very latest and best technology to evry lesson. Using the 3d radar technology you can see exactly how the club is moving during the swing and how that affects the golf balls flight. It gives fantastic readings and truly helps with the understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing.

Helping young golfers start the game

This open championship week saw 10 lucky pupils of Heysham High school try the game for the first time. On Tuesday 17th July they visited a practice day for the open at Royal Lytham. Pupils grabbed autographs and saw some of the worlds best players getting ready for the tournament.

The next day the came to Ashton Golf Centre and were taught the basics by Simon Lucas on the driving range. After spending the morning fine tuning their set-up and swing they then went out on the course for 9 holes for the very first time.

Simon added "It's great for me to teach such young and enthusiastic kids this great game." One of the pupils from Heysham said "This game is not as easy as the pro's make it look!".

We hope that they countine their intrest in this great game and who knows, we may have started the career of a future Open player!

Coaching Local Schools

 

 I have been coaching some A-level students at Central Lancaster High school. There has been a group of 6 students studying strengths and weaknesses of sports with golf been their chosen sport. We started with 2 sessions on the driving range looking at their individual swing on the driving range and using the video to show areas that they had to work on to help improve.

Then we focused on the short game including pitching, chipping and putting and understanding how we change elements of the set - up and how that effected the ball flights.

We took the last week to get out on the course and play a few holes trying to take what we learnt on the driving range to the golf course. The lessons worked really well and with the help of the video the students understood a lot of the techniquies needed for the golf swing.
