High Beech Golf Course
The home of the short game
Hone your short game at the home of the short game
As you can see, High Beech is a great course to learn the finer points of the game. We all love to get out a driver and hit it as hard as we can, but it's not helping your game. The advantage to playing par 3 golf is that you are forced to focus on the scoring clubs and yardages, short irons, chipping, putting, and accuracy.
You don't have the option to get out a driver every hole and try and hit it as far as you can, so in many ways High Beech is the best place to start your golfing journey this year.
All players welcome
Don't forget that on Sundays and Thursdays at 12:30 we are offering an hours group lesson, a hot drink, and 9 holes of golf, all for just £10.
No need to book, just turn up and be ready to improve your game whilst having fun.
Our top tips for preparing for the season ahead
Although the weather only seems to be getting worse recently, soon the temperatures will start to rise and the sun will show its face again (we hope). That means it's time to dust the clubs off and start preparing for the season ahead. Here are our top tips on how to get off to a flying start this season:
- Warm up (especially when it's cold) - It may not be the most exciting tip, but it is vital to starting a round quickly and not injuring yourself. There are plenty of golf warm up routines available online, alternatively we'd recommend going in the net for 5 minutes, using a wedge, and starting with very slow and controlled 3/4 or even 1/2 swings and slowly working your way up to a full swing at full speed.
- A little can add up to a lot - If you're still not quite keen on long practice sessions, then have short practice sessions as often as possible. Even if it's just 5 minutes putting or chipping at home every other day, or 5 minutes swinging a club and getting a feel for a proper release of the face, body rotation, and timing. You'd be surprised how much of a difference this can make come your first competition back.
- Get fitted - If you've never been custom fitted and your clubs are getting on in age, then now is the perfect time to upgrade. You have the whole of this season to enjoy your brand new clubs and all the manufacturers have just bought out their latest products, not to mention you can get a fitted set of Lynx irons for ONLY £199. If you haven't been custom fit before, then you will almost certainly gain yardage or accuracy, if not both.
- Get some tune-up lessons - There are a fair few people who never have lessons, they enjoy playing a round with their friends, or in a comp, and whether or not they improve isn't the most important thing; however, there is no harm in getting one or two tune-up lessons before the season begins, in order to get you back to your peak and ready to enjoy golf more than ever. Think of it as a warm of up for the season, that should hopefully keep you going until winter kicks in again.

How did you enjoy the weekend's golf?
Some truly special stuff was played on both sides of the pond over the weekend. Graeme Storm's remarkable story continued on the European Tour. The Englishman kept his Tour card for this year by the skin of his teeth, only to go and defeat Rory McIlroy after a three-hole playoff in his first event of 2017. Over in Hawaii, Justin Thomas followed up last week's triumph by carding an opening round 59 en route to a second successive victory, smashing various records in the process.
