Every two years we hold a reunion weekend, where you can meet old friends, relive wonderful memories, meet other clients who have attended the various events over the years and share and compare experiences. The weekend also presents the opportunity for you to meet all of us at David Short Golf, myself, Barney, Aaron, Jennie and Iain.

The UK Golf Academy is a three day event, which specialises on the technical aspects of your game. Aaron Shepherd is our PGA Pro heading up the Staverton Park, Daventry Golf Academy. Aaron will provide the advice to make those small changes that can make such a larger difference to your game.
For many years we have taken the ‘Golf & Coaching Weeks’ to different locations across Europe, Africa and the South East Asia. Instead of heading to pastures new however, for this week we head back to where we began many years ago. The week will be based at the Melia La Quinta Golf Resort, using the fabulous coaching facilities and playing the wonderful 27 holes of the course. . Our hotel for the week is the very grand and elegant H10 Hotel Andalucia Plaza Hotel in Puerto Banus. With airport and golf transfers and dinner each evening included, the week provides good value for money, relative to the quality of the tuition, golf and accommodation. It is our intention over the next couple of years to make both La Quinta and the Robinson Club in Tavira in Portugal, our two overseas European ‘Golf & Coaching’ venues. I very much hope that you can join me at what has always been a favourite location for clients over the years.
For the late summer, early autumn season this year, we want to tempt you with some new and not altogether obvious locations for a golf week! And so we head to Malmo in Sweden! Located in the gorgeous province of Skane in southern Sweden, Malmo is part of the expanding Oresund region and is joined to Copenhagen in Denmark by the mighty, arching Oresund Bridge. Malmo is a small, friendly city with a good choice of cultural attractions, including the new Moderna Museet Malmo. With a plethora of quality restaurants, bistros and great cafes, Malmo is a wonderful cultural centre. And the golf is not bad either! We will play five quite unique courses, which I am sure will all be experiences that live long in the memory. We will also explore the City on our day off and come to appreciate life in this wonderful Nordic country. Please note that you will need to fly into Copenhagen Airport, and not Malmo Airport. The transfer time from Copenhagen to Malmo is just 20 minutes.
Our fourth UK Golf Tour weekend makes a long awaited return to Cornwall, based at the Royal Duchy Hotel, Falmouth. With its mild climate and longer evenings, Cornwall is the perfect venue for an early October weekend escape. Barney will be your host for the weekend and together you will experience four wonderful golf courses and a truly exceptional hotel.
For the last two seasons the ‘Golf and Coaching Weeks’ have been based at the superbly appointed Robinson Club in Tavira, in the eastern Algarve, which has both the Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima Golf Clubs onsite.
Join Barney in Dubai for a week of high class golf, accommodation, sightseeing, cuisine and shopping. Dubai has it all and provides the opportunity to indulge in a truly opulent golfing environment. You will be playing five of the best courses in Dubai, staying in a fine 4 star hotel set along The Walk in the prestigious Jumeirah Beach Residence area. On the Wednesday you will have a day at leisure followed by a Dune Safari with dinner. Dubai may not be the most affordable golfing location, but it is certainly one of the best and most exotic locations.
It has been a while since we last travelled to Madeira for golf and a return is well over due. Madeira has a wonderful charisma that combines an elegant way of living with what feels like a retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A wonderful island on which to relax, play some wonderful golf and enjoy a plethora of superb restaurants. With two superb courses on the main island, Palheiro and Santo da Serra and Porto Santo Golf Club a rather unique ferry ride away, the week will deliver a golfing experience to remember. The hotel for the week is the Pestana Miramar Hotel in Funchal, which provides fine quality, charm and the sophistication associated with Madeira. The hotel is ideally located for the shops by day and the restaurants by night, being just a 15 minute stroll from the centre of Funchal. If you are after a week of super golf, in a warm climate to escape the November blues, then the Madeira Golf Week will be an excellent choice.
