Short Game Clinics-$40   (limit 4)
The majority of golfers do not practice their short games enough. Of those that do spend time working on their short game, many are not practicing the correct technique. These two-hour clinics will cover all aspects of the short game - putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play. A simple correction such as ball position or weight distribution can have a huge impact on the quality of your short shots.  The clinics will be held on the far end of the driving range at White Horse GC.

Short Game Clinic Dates 
Saturday April 26th 2:00 - 4:00 PM
Sunday May 4th 12:00 - 2:00 PM
Saturday May 10th 2:00 - 4:00 PM

Ladies Clinics - 5 lesson series - $99   (limit 5)
The format lends itself well to golfers of all abilities, starting with the full swing and working our way to the short game. The last lesson will be on the golf course, focusing on course strategy. A good reward for a nice practice session? After the clinic, plan to enjoy a beverage on the beautiful patio over looking the 18th hole at White Horse!

If your schedule doesn't work with the dates below, you can always put your own group together. Whether it is two, three, four or more, we can organize a clinic or series of clinics to fit your schedule and needs. Please call me for more information on clinics - 206-406-0068.
