The path to better play is unique to every golfer. The biggest step in becoming a good player is understanding how the flight of the ball teaches the correct geometry of impact. Without lessons, it is very difficult to decipher what is causing the ball to fly away from it’s intended target.

As stated by the Late Great John Jacobs, “THE GOLF SWING has only one purpose: to deliver the head of the club to the ball correctly, and to achieve such impact repeatedly. Many unorthodox players achieve correct impact — so long as it’s repeatable, it’s OK.” Our Instructors will be able to provide each individual golfer with a clear picture of how to improve THEIR game.

SWING

The golf swing has only one purpose: to deliver the head of the club to the ball correctly, and to achieve such impact repeatedly. The only position that matters is the club’s at impact, which is determined by the clubface alignment (the most important factor), the path of the swing, the angle of attack and the speed of the clubhead.

QUEENSTOWN HARBOR

STANCE

Many players never start in an address position that makes the windup back and through possible. If the set up is right, it’s all done; you don’t need any more thoughts.

PUTT

Many players see the line and try to take the putter back and through along that line. But that is not the most efficient method. Golf is a game that has the player positioned to the side of the ball, so the stroke must work inside on the back, and through swings in order to deliver the putter more efficiently.

QUEENSTOWN HARBOR

PRACTICE

One good thing to remember is to have a plan when you’re heading to any part of the practice facility. Whether it’s to the driving range, putting green or chipping area, practicing isn’t a race to see how many balls you can hit in an hour.

“People are always friendly. The course is in great shape and the cottages are beautiful so go to Queenstown Harbor and stay and play!!”
