If you write ‘golf’ backwards then it spells ‘flog’ which is how many golfers make their way around the course.
Slicing shots here, shanking them there and spending more time in the bunker than on the green, they finish their eighteen holes looking as though they’ve just been worked over with a cat o’ nine tails.
You can improve your game and avoid a whipping by taking up today’s Big Deal at Mearns Castle Golf Academy on the leafy outskirts of Glasgow.
European tour pro Alastair Forsyth reckons that ‘the unrivalled facilities at Mearns Castle offer golfers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to develop and improve their game through practice, tuition and play.’
With Big Deal, you can start working on your game by practising your driving with 50 balls on the driving range. Mearns Castle boasts 30 covered and fully automated practice bays, allowing you to drive away in relaxed and comfortable surroundings.
Since 70% of all shots in golf are played with the wedge and putter, the next part of your package is an hour on the academy’s short game area. There are two full USGA specification greens for wedge play.
Finally, you can try out your new skills by playing 18 holes on the scenic, 33 par, 9 hole course surrounding the Mearns Castle Golf Academy.
All this golfing is hard work so the Big Deal includes breakfast and a soup ‘n’ sandwich lunch.
If you want to stop flogging your way around the course then the golfers’ day out Big Deal is £24 per person; a 63% reduction on the standard £64.
