This dynamic, fast growing sport requires a lot of technique, concentration and walking. Considering the fact that this course will be given at the Sports Centre Driving Range, the main focus of attention will be on technique. Among other things, you will learn how to knock off and putt, and how to get a flexible swing.
Pay attention: Due to important instructions about safety, it is very important to be present at the first lesson.
