Playing lessons

An on course playing lesson gives you the opportunity to watch me play golf. You’ll see me play some “wow shots” and you’ll also see some “recovery shots”. I will be asking the important questions to get the most out of your golf and helping you make the ball do what you want it to do. This is a two-way learning experience, you learning from me and me learning from you to help you play better golf. There is also an option where I don’t play, and I walk around helping you with your game in the same way.

Non Members please note: There is a green fee charge of €5/€10 for use of the course in addition to the cost of the lesson.


“Hi Sarah, I won the Captain’s prize yesterday in Glengarriff so between that and Joe’s brilliant score in the Junior Scratch Cup your name is up in lights in Glengarriff. Thanks for all your help”
“Thanks for the last three days! Seriously best coaching I ‘ve received so far… Hope to see you again.”
“Hi Sarah, Had another great win in Dunmore last week with 28 pts – over 14 holes- for my Spring League team. Take a bow Sarah”
“I just want to thank you Sarah for improving my golf in so many ways.  I am really enjoying playing again and when I swing properly with my club and finish with the sole of my golf shoe off the ground and facing backwards,  I feel like a Pro!”
Brenda, Daily Telegraph, Ping Winner 2016
“One of the ladies who helps run the range said what a lovely swing I had. Honestly, I was chuffed to bits as it is very early days! However, I feel a hell of a lot better than I did last week at this time…… So, fingers crossed and thanks to the best golf teacher in the world!”

Workshop Testimonials

“Sarah thanks for your presentation today in Glengarriff, really enjoyed it all. Picked up some great tips and hope to adopt them to my game asap. You are brilliant to listen to and great fun, refreshing, Thanks again, much appreciated.”  Joan Boyd

“Many thanks first for your talk. Everyone enjoyed it with some positive results reported. One attendee dropped her handicap by 2 shots the following week and credited it to your advice! Must say I have noticed more sensible putting practice being put to use! Keep up the good work.” Best wishes, Gill Ashton Naunton Downs G.C.

“Just to let you know, that one of our newer ladies was eager to speak to me last week. She had so enjoyed the evening and felt a new person on the tee, more relaxed and more able to cope with everything a round of golf involves for a new golfer. She was animated, usually a little shy.” I thought I would pass on the feedback. Judith Henbury GC
