Our very own Jennie organised a bespoke group for Golf Coaching from her golf club for a 4 day “intensive” Spring warm up.
Only a few hours after stepping on to Portuguese soil our intrepid group were on the excellent short game area pitching, chipping and bunkering. A few putting pointers to finish with and then off to the bar for Prosecco appreciation!
Day one golf at the excellent Laranjal, where the feature for me is their amazing greens which were at top speed. The ladies did really well considering they had just come from putting surfaces around 60% slower at home.
Day two we went on to the range to work on a few ideas with videos of their swings and played Cima in the afternoon. The thought of possible rain for them but pancakes for me, brought us in after 9 holes and we were right on both counts.
Last day of golf at the mouth watering Monte Rei and the clubhouse and course were in amazing condition. We had an individual comp today and the stylish Suzi won the day mastering the challenging greens and bunkers with a memorable hole out from a particularly deep one on the tricky 7th green. A good week rounded off by dinner and a show in the fun theatre at Robinsons.
The ladies spent the last day walking down to the beach and all in all a good time was had by all on and off the course. A great finish to my 3 weeks in the Algarve.
All the best
