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

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.

My first time at a David Short golf clinic and I really enjoyed it. Barney' was dedicated and patient and really gave me much to think about. There were eight of us on the trip and it was a good number. The practice sessions were invaluable, I never practice for that amount of time, but also it was constructive. We played nine holes in the afternoons, 18 holes available if you wanted to, under Barney's watchful eye and it was good to get feedback on that too! I am definitely approaching my game set up differently. Thank you very much for a great weekend, next time I will try one of the events abroad. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this booster for your game.

Good holiday. I liked Oitavos very much but was astonished at the high Buggy price of Eur 70. Said as much on Trip Advisor. Penha Longa was ONLY Eur55. The hotel was good but the coffee (Allegedly Nescafe from a machine ) was terrible.So if you go there Take your own coffee - but dont let them take it away by vacating your table for a minute to get toast. I have left Feed back with the hotel about the Coffee so they know.

Wonderful part of the world . Cascais is great little town. Amazing fish restaurants, probably some of the best in the world. Superb golf courses, particularly Octavia Dunes. Sh1t weather!

A great week, weather not great, but only an hour or so of rain. David was able to point out my weakness's (a full time job in itself !!) and point me in the direction of salvation. The Hotel was fine, food excellent and the social side was first class. As a group the Hotel would have been grateful for the wet sales. The courses are far from easy and were a bit daunting for some !

What a wonderful week this proved to be! Sometimes numbers do not matter. Huw and I couldn't believe our luck having Barney all to ourselves. Five rounds of golf with the master and continuous tuition. San Lorenzo and Pinheiros Altos courses were as good as I remembered them from four years ago. The hotel is excellent and transport worked like clockwork. We greatly enjoyed the recommended restaurants as much as the hotel buffets, excellent as they were. Barney arranged a table directly in front of the TV to enable me to watch the Europa cup game and Liverpool's eventual triumph. He claims to have persuaded our waitress to wear the red dress. What a host! Goodness knows what would have happened if Watford had been playing! We found the flamingos again and the best beach restaurant yet on our day off. Perfect! David B

What a fantastic week. It was my first trip with David and it was so enjoyable. Everything was organised for us......transport to and from the courses and restaurants, golf clinics, golf courses, golf buggies ( for those of us that wanted them). We had great fun, great company and great tuition and great golf....some of the time. Well done David. We'll be back and I think I can speak for Kathleen as well.
