Coaching &  Golf Holidays


During the year I host a number of Golf Tours and Coaching holidays in association with David Short Golf.

David, a Professional Golfer, has been arranging and hosting Golf Holidays for many years both in the UK during the summer and warmer climes around the world in the Winter. 

The Golf and Coaching holidays are for the golfer who wishes to combine golf with some light coaching.  It is not a time for major changes, rather reminders of past lessons and the art of scoring with course management.  Friendly competitions and evening meals are arranged to suit the group.

Escorted Tours take place in venues such as South Africa, Thailand, Malaysia, Mauritius and other countries will be added to the list.  This is your opportunity to play some of the best golf courses in the world, site seeing and playing with like minded people and a professional.
Have a look at DS Golf Holiday website to see what else is available.

Yorkshire Golf Tour

The third of our UK golf tours for the 2019 season takes us to the golfing mecca of North Leeds, which is an area full of quite wonderful golf courses. And we are playing three of the best within the main body of the tour, Moor Allerton, Sand Moor and Moortown. Quality wise, golf courses simply don’t come much better. For the optional round on the Thursday, we have another super course to play, Leeds Golf Club, which is a wonderful compliment to the highly renowned trio above.

The accommodation for the tour is the charming Weetwood Hall Hotel, ideally located close to the courses, and with excellent rooms, a very good Restaurant and its own pub on-site!

Turkey (Belek) Golf Week

We have long thought about touring in Turkey and now the time has arrived. The quality of the hotel resorts and the golf courses in Belek are very high indeed; hence the tremendous growth in golf tourism to Belek in the last ten years or so. The Resorts also offer very good value for money, with their ‘All-inclusive’ terms and with the transport infrastructure between the hotels and the courses. This may be our first tour to Belek in Turkey, but I am positive that it won’t be our last!

We are staying at the 5-star Sirene Golf Hotel in Belek, which also hosts the Pasha and Sultan courses. There are also two off-site rounds, at Carya Golf Club and The National Golf Club. As with all of our tours and events, the social side to the trip, is just as important as the quality of the accommodation and golf. With everyone dining together, with informal competitions and prize-giving at the end of the week, we aim to ensure that the week will be one to remember both in terms of the golf and the camaraderie of the tour.

Mauritius Golf Tour - Fully Booked

It’s been a while, too long in fact, but Mauritius is back! I am hosting a 14-night tour at the quite sumptuous Anahita Golf & Spa Resort, which features two of the best golf courses in the world, the Ernie Els designed Anahita course, and the Bernhard Langer designed, Ile Aux Cerfs course. The Resort itself is 5-star elegance personified, with a glorious ocean side setting that one would expect in Mauritius. The Anahita course hosts the Mauritius Open each year, whilst the Ile Aux Cerfs is regarded as one of the top ten most beautiful courses in the world; hence you can get a feel for the quality of the tour. A day will also be spent at the races in the comfort of a private box which is an experience that I am looking forward to repeating. The terms of stay are ‘Dinner, Bed & Breakfast’ and the accommodation takes the form of spacious Junior Suites, located adjacent to the Anahita course.Spaces are limited on the tour; hence early booking is recommended.

Vilamoura Portugal Christmas Golf Week

For Christmas 2019, I am delighted to say that we are returning to the Hilton Vilamoura Hotel, which worked so well last year.

We have amended the golf programme slightly, to provide some annual variety. The golf itinerary features rounds on the famed local trio of the Old, Victoria and Millennium courses, as well as a round on the ever popular Quinta do Lago – Laranjal course and likewise the always sought after Royal course at Vale do Lobo.

With regards to dining, we have booked four dinners at the hotel this year, together with a Christmas Day lunch. I will book restaurants on the other three evenings, thereby providing the opportunity to have both the convenience of dining in the hotel, but also the opportunity to dine out at some fine establishments during the course of the week.

Throughout the Tour, there will also be the opportunity for some informal golf lessons. Simply let me know if you would like some tuition and if so, clinics will be arranged accordingly.
