A Non Golfer – Sept 2018

Fantastic holiday in Italy even for a non golfer, beautiful golf courses, splendid company
gorgeous food in local restaurants, superb hotel…. but the icing on the cake was on the
last night being taken over the lake on a boat to a beautiful restaurant.The captain even
played God save the Queen.On the return trip Liz took control of the boat watched
carefully by the captain. Mick and I both thank David and Liz for another brilliant holiday.


Looking forward to Spring 2019

David et al
As the autumnal weather sets in here in the UK there is nothing nicer than looking forward to next spring at San Lorenzo
A credit to the whole experience, I’m looking forward to a full 2 weeks with you, Liz and the gang next spring.
Thanks for both the coaching and the forbearance – handicap now down to 22 !! Which is a struggle at times to play to. Thats about £1000 a point – worth every penny, thank you

2019 … Target 18 because that makes the scoring easier – cheque to follow !!

Have a great festive season, play well, enjoy the travel and very much looking forward to SL next year

Thoroughly Enjoyed 26 May 2018 Golf & Coaching

Hi All
Thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to Staverton Park. Barney’s coaching and tips were very helpful. Played 18 holes on Friday and shot 2 over par off my 8 handicap with vastly improved iron shots and reduction in no of putts particularly under 6 foot. Will be back in 2019 when hopefully Barney will get me down to scatch! Gill also hit some great shots on Friday although I’m not sure she was paying attention in the bunker lesson.


My First Escorted Golf Vacation – Sesimbra May 2018

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone at DSG for their part in helping to create a fantastic golf holiday experience. The Sesimba trip was my first escorted golf vacation and every aspect of it exceeded my expectations. From the meticulous and timely email-coordination of logistics with Iain, to the patient gentlemanly approach of Barney (our tour-guide, golf-coach and dinner-companion extraordinaire), to the amazing group of friendly and fun-loving fellow golfers…I thoroughly enjoyed every detail.

The precise pre-trip planning and detailed coordination was evident throughout.. .and the airport transfers, hotel accommodations, daily transportation, training sessions, golf outings, dinner gatherings all combined for a stress-free, relaxed, and fun golf vacation. Iain and DSG staff assisted me with renting clubs for the week (which even arrived to the hotel before I did). The quality of the clubs, pick-up and drop-off service, and price point for the week was simply phenomenal. In a word, I felt spoiled…perhaps exactly as one hopes to feel on an escorted vacation 🙂 Thanks again to all and I look forward to another golfing adventure with you soon!

Excellence of San Lorenzo – April 2018

Even the unseasonable weather on the Algarve in early April, could not reduce the excellence of San Lorenzo. It is a wonderful course with many fine holes, in a superb location. The newly refurbished Dona Filipe hotel was a great base and David made sure that we made the best of the weather.


Easter Golf and Coaching 2018

Just to say I very much enjoyed my first David Short holiday over Easter. Although the weather was disappointing I did learn lots from David and Barney and hope to participate in another holiday in the future. Thanks for all you help and advice re the booking.


Tenerife Golf Week November 2017

Thank you Barney and Jennie for organising a fabulous week in Tenerife as well as arranging for the good weather! Lots of jocularity and camaraderie, lovely food, lovely company, lovely courses…what’s not to like? I had a great first time experience overseas with DSG. See you in Portugal!


Tenerife Golf Week November 2017

This was my first overseas trip with DSG and won’t be my last. Have been on numerous holidays with other companies but this was the most enjoyable to date. Great courses, golf and company. The effort Jennie and Barney put into organising everything was greatly appreciated. Looking forward to new year in the Algarve.

Arizona November 2017

Fantastic trip from beginning to end! We embraced all to Las Vegas offers – shows, fountains, volcano and gondolas, great restaurants and a little flutter.

Sedona was impressive and another day there would have nice. Played some super courses in Scottsdale – Eagle Mountain and We Ko Pa were favourites.

The hotel in Tucson was very good with views over the golf course and desert. Arizona National was a particularly good course.

Bring on San Diego


Tenerife Golf and Coaching 4 Nov 2017

I hope not too late for an appreciative note following our trip to Tenerife on 4th Nov. We both thoroughly enjoyed renewing our association with DS Golf Schools. The trip was better than we could have hoped. Barney – your teaching is superb and conducted with such patience and good humour. Part of the delay in writing is that’ve been sourcing the 5 wood discussed and have now had the chance to use it on a number occasions – I’m very pleased with the result and it made a good Christmas present for Ann to give me.
I’ll attach a few pictures altho’ I didn’t take many and I’m sure that Barney has scores!
Best wishes for the festive season, John Miller
