A Golf Lesson at London Golf Club

At the weekend I headed off to London Golf Club for a lesson.  From Victoria it was only 30 minutes on the train and then a quick taxi ride from there.

The first thing you notice as you drive up is the setting, two beautiful 18 hole courses named Heritage and International both of which are designed by the world renowned golfer Jack Nicklaus.

The great thing about London Golf Club is that you don’t have to be a member to play on their courses.

I was greeted by my teacher Paul who is head professional at London Golf Club – he started there as a caddy when the club first opened.  Kitted out with a bag full of different named clubs, irons and drivers we headed off to the practice range.  The closest I had got to golf before was pitch and putt on holiday and this was a far cry from that.

Paul taught me the basics with an 8 iron and by the end of the lesson had me hitting a driver, all the time reminding me “the ball is the centre of the circle” the one thing that would always guarantee me a great shot…apparently!

It was great to get out in the fresh air and Paul was extremely encouraging and patient. If you fancy doing something different one afternoon then it is a great way to escape the stress of work and afterwards head to the clubhouse to relax with a glass of wine and some food and have a giggle about the bad shots that were made… and I definitively made a few of those!
