Novice golfers can don their plus-fours for a two-hour lesson from a PGA professional golfing instructor. Lessons will take guests through the swing and stance of a golfer to get hold of the fundamentals of the sport before moving on to cover driving, pitching and shot-making techniques. Players can further hone their swings by opting to play on the day, with £5 off the green fee.
