The longer days are here and for many golfers – it’s “that time of year”. We asked our PGA head professional Mark Watt for some top tips to get seasoned, novice and returning players back into the swing of things.

“First off, get yourself and your equipment ready, especially if your clubs are caked in dirt from last year,” says Mark. “You may need clubs re-gripped or even need new ones, so take a look at what new products have come out that may help improve your game.

“Start with some practice sessions. Hit lots of wedge shots and aim at different targets to develop feel and control. This will also get your body moving again after the winter lay off. Also, get yourself around the putting green to practise chipping and putting.

“Don’t take those early games too seriously and give yourself plenty of time to improve this season. If you feel you’re struggling come and have some tuition. Our lessons start from just £11 for a quick-fix session.

“And this has been a very wet winter so do keep in mind your game may need readjusting in the first few weeks of the season. We look forward to seeing you soon!”
