Hi Sam, Just wanted to say thank you again for a fabulous week in Portugal last week. Both Andy and I really enjoyed it and feel we both learnt loads. It’s really revitalised my desire to improve and hopefully lower my handicap! As a testimonial I would say you are a fabulous couch for people of all levels. Your calm approach and friendly manner makes learning interesting and exciting. Your methods are not too technical to understand and people are able to adapt their own game in accordance with your methodology. In the space of a week you have changed my mindset to the game of golf and if anything made a game I love even more exciting. Thank you again for your patience and understanding and I look forward to attending another one of your golfing weeks again in the future. I cannot recommend strongly enough for anyone wishing to improve their game to attend one of your sessions anywhere in the world.

Good morning Sam! What a wonderful golf holiday in Portugal. You really provided a comprehensive framework for every aspect of the holiday. It was so well organised but at the same time provided flexibility. And your professional coaching along with your relaxed style has definitely made a significant improvement to my game of golf. It was the time spent on the mind game that really reached my inner soul and has helped me manage my disappointment in my performance. Yes, I can accept my current performance but will continue to develop my skills in golf!! I had a great game yesterday at my club and even had one lady say that ‘my handicap should come down once spring arrives’!! The ladies that I played with yesterday made a note of David Short Website along with your name. I most definitely want to book the same golf holiday next year along with the other members on the holiday. I wait for further details so that I can formally confirm my intent to be part of the golf holiday next year. I’m also looking at the few days in Dorsey in July. I need to consider driving there on my own but once I take time reviewing the route, I’m sure that I should be able to do that. Thank you again Sam for a most enjoyable holiday that far exceeded my expectations. Do please keep in touch and let me know if you have any other opportunities to be part of one of your events. Apologies for missing out on the 16 February event. Take care. Ciao, Donna

We enjoyed this trip even more than last year (which we thoroughly enjoyed) and all credit to all at DSG and The Westin Resort to keep it rolling despite the Covid pandemic. The process from very understanding and helpful and accommodating reservations procedure (due to our indecisiveness) were taken on board by Iain graciously, to the warm reception of Barney and Jennie, added to by the insighful short game clinics, in frankly, the best short game area many of us had ever seen, the courses, the food and the accommodation and let's not forget the glorious were all at least 7 star, the resort is comprehensive for both golfers and non-golfers. The resort's staff could not have been more helpful. Thanks to all of you and it was also nice to met a few old friends and made some new ones, whom we hope to see again soon on the next trips to Costa Navarino and elsewhere, in the future, God Willing! Can't wait to go back!

Thanks for Barney's report and the photos. I thoroughly enjoyed the Devon and Cornwall trip, despite the wet weather at first and thank you to you and Barney for hosting it so well. I'm attaching some photos in case they are of interest. Best wishes Helen

Our Devon Trip was wet and windy so we couldn't make the most of the magnificent courses there. However, the Imperial in Barnstaple was very comfortable with excellent food and service. On to sunny Cornwall - fantastic links courses and a pleasant parkland one at the hotel to finish. Many thanks to Barney and Jennie for hosting the tours and for my surprise birthday celebration.

Thanks Jennie and Barney for being super hosts and Iain and all at DSG for kindly making this trip so well arranged and so much fun and to all the participants for making us feel so much a part of the regular gang. The whole experience was really outstanding. The choice of resort and its facilities world class, the company and food, memorable and the golf in the glorious weather was the cherry on top of the icing on the cake. We look forward to more trips with DSG in the future and that all this was accomplished by all those involved both at DSG and at The Westin during these extremely challenging times.

I’m laughing as much now as I was at the awards ceremony. Thank you so much to our group for keeping each other sane. I expect white shirts at some point at the 2021 Open ( you had to be there).
