David Short Golf


Staverton Park Academy 5 August 2016

Just back from Staverton and we both enjoyed the coaching course and feel sure we’ll see an improvement to our games. Please pass on our thanks to the Golf Monthly Posterboy.

Barney is an excellent coach and able to communicate with players of all levels of ability and experience. My sister and niece are both novices and they were thrilled with the opportunity to learn so much during the morning coaching and then go on to play on the course in the afternoon. When the rest of us collapsed and went off to the bar they carried on, real stalwarts!

It was also lovely to meet Jennie, such a kind and cheerful person and a good partner on the golf course!

Great to see all the new events on the website, so we can start planning for next spring.


North Wales Golf Tour 25 July 2016

I had been looking forward to this trip for some months and the courses, company and organisation did not disappoint. For somebody with my limited golfing skills to be able to play on “grown up” golf courses was a real treat.

Some gentle coaching from David and helpful hints from playing partners was a bonus and here I would echo John’s comments re the cohesive and friendly nature of the group. For me, it was good to meet up with old acquaintances and make new ones.

Yes we had some rain but it was North Wales and I have to say that only a blizzard was going to stop me playing.

Looking forward to my next David Short trip by when I need to improve my short (no pun) game


North Wales Golf Tour 25 July 2016

This was my first David Short golf trip and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

David’s tours were recommended to me by friends and this one exceeded my expectations. The golf courses were excellent and the hotel was very comfortable and well managed. The other golfers on the tour were great and we became a cohesive and friendly group almost instantly. David was an exemplary host.

We had a little rain, but not enough to spoil the trip, and, hey, this is North Wales!

It was a trip that accomplished that rare thing: it pushed all the right buttons and none of the wrong ones.


Italy Golf Tour 29 June 2016

As a non golfer I have been on quite a few holidays,I enjoy walking the courses, the scenery is usually very pleasant to
walk around but the heat got to me on this one!(Not a complaint).The two centres were very different but really enjoyable,the hotels were excellent as was the food and wine.
I am always made to feel part of the group and have met some really nice people,all in all a great holiday.Thank you David.


Staverton Academy 3 June 2016

I had a fantastic weekend of first class tuition. Barney the coach was very professional made you feel at ease and without a doubt I improved my own standard of golf. The three days of golfing was organised, no time was wasted (even at the bar and dinner), we covered every aspect of golf. I turned up knowing nobody and by the end of the three days it felt as though I had know these people all my life. Crazy! I put this down to the David Short Golf organisation in creating a friendly, at ease atmosphere. So much so I will be signing up for another golf trip. Thank you .


Dorset Escorted Golf Tour 5 June 2016

Back from a great week in Bournemouth. The hotel was a bit tatty, but food was very good and the service excellent, and there was a good bar/lounge area for drinks which is important for a group holiday. The group were good fun and we had plenty of laughs.

I loved the golf courses and we were incredibly lucky to have such good weather all week. What David omitted to mention in his blog was that in our ongoing match play series against him and Liz the Kennetts won 3&2!

We would really like to return to the area (perhaps a smarter hotel?) and play a similar selection of courses.

Looking forward now to brushing up our skills at Staverton.

Best wishes,


Dorset Escorted Golf Tour 5 June

Dorset was great! Could you pass on my thanks to David for a very good week.


San Lorenzo Golf Week with Clinics 2 April 2016

Never enjoyed a week so much! No more to say!


Staverton Park Academy 13 May 2016

Great weekend.,Barney’s instruction & commitment to improving our various golf games was excellent (even if we couldn’t always do it!!) Weather was the only disappointment, apart from Saturday pm it was cold!
Hopefully will make another one this year in the sunshine


Staverton Park Golf Academy 13 May

A most enjoyable weekend despite the weather flipping between semi-arctic and giving me sunburn! I have only one comment; at the introductory session I think it would have been useful to ask each participant why they had booked on the course and what, in particular, they wanted to learn. This would have allowed more focussed coaching. Notwithstanding, I now know what to do to improve my game – it’s just a question of practice.
