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 shotâ€¦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 madeâ€¦ and I definitively made a few of those!
