Golf with Gillian Burrell PGA Fellow

 

Golf just voted most “boring game”

By Gillian Burrell PGA Fellow

A week ago, golf topped the list of 30 of the most boring games in sport. It’s hard to argue with perceptions but all sports have more to offer than the dissenting voices argue. The game of golf has irrevocably changed my life and it does so for lots of people for a whole host of reasons.

Perhaps the problem is that golfers rarely look at “what lies beneath” the surface of the game and tend to reduce it to a good score or a more likely a not so good score!  As we know too well, golfers are lucky to score well less than a handful of times throughout the year. If this is the case, what makes the game so compelling?

We can talk about “a game for life”, the health benefits we accrue, the relationships we build with our fellow golfers but I think it’s even more fundamental than that, it’s the life challenges golf presents on a daily basis in the course of the game.

 

Never boring, always challenging.

 

Whether it’s controlling our emotions when we hit a bad shot, our ability to make logical decisions when it comes to shot making, responding to pressure, resilience or “bounce back” as we call in in golf, these are the challenges that make golf interesting, addictive and sometimes all consuming.

Over the next couple of months, I will be writing about each of these challenges and how we can overcome them and transform not just your game but also how you could use these tools in other areas of your life.

In the meantime, if you come across a sceptic, please highlight the reasons why golf is never boring but always challenging. We all need to persuade these disbelievers for the sake of the longevity of the game.

 

Gillian is Director of Coaching at P2LG and operates her private coaching practice at The Carr Golf Centre at Spawell and Elmgreen Golf Centre.

For further information on coaching programmes and availability, you can call Gillian at 087-2586788.

Junior Summer Golf Camps Back for a 5th Year

This July and August, the golf course is the place for any young, budding golfers. For the 5th year, P2LG, Ireland’s Premier Golf Coaching Programme, hosts its Junior Summer Camps in locations in Dublin, Wicklow and Clare.

Suited to boys and girls aged 6 to 13 years, the Golf Camps cater for complete beginners and improvers. The focus for the three hour session each day is fun and friendship. Summer campers will learn the golf fundamentals, practising and improving the very basics with short game and on course play. The maximum group size is 16. All equipment is provided if necessary.

P2LG’s Junior Summer Camps started in 2012 and over 5,000 children have been coached and mentored through the programmes. Hugh Feeney, PGA Professional and Head Coach, is delighted to launch the 5th year of the Summer Camps programme. “Golf helps build confidence and relationships and it’s especially important to develop these skills in younger people. Our kids thoroughly enjoy the camps and return each year. The best moment of the week for me are the proud faces at our Certificate Ceremony. Golf is a game for all the family, which can be enjoyed forever”.

The four day camps run Monday to Thursday from 10am to 1pm. The cost is €89 per child and each additional sibling is €80.

Dates and full details are online at www.play2learngolf.com or call 01 8200 797.

Elmgreen Golf Club launch new facilities after €1million investment

Fingal Mayor, Darragh Butler and Fingal County Council CEO, Paul Reid joined Carr Golf CEO Marty Carr today to officially re-launch Elmgreen Golf Course following a recent one-million-euro investment.

Last October, Carr Golf was awarded the maintenance contract for Elmgreen in addition to their long-running management of the facility. The innovative partnership between Fingal County Council and Ireland’s leading golf club management and maintenance specialists, Carr Golf, has led to a series of on and off-course developments which were officially unveiled at the relaunch in Castleknock to a group of over 50 local council, TDs and golf industry specialists.

The developments are being spearheaded by new Golf Operation Manager Jacques Vermaak and Head Greenkeeper Diarmuid Dempsey and their teams. South African Vermaak brings a wealth of international hospitality experience. There are further new recruits in the form of PGA Golf Professionals Graham Sweeney and Hugh Feeney.

Within the clubhouse the developments include new male and female locker rooms, a new restaurant and bar which will be run by golf specialist catering team, Bliss. On the course there has been significant investment in agronomy and in the driving range 15,000 new golf balls and a new automated system have been installed.

Speaking at the launch, Fingal Mayor, Darragh Butler commented; “Providing top class amenities for the Fingal area is one of our key objectives and we are thrilled to see Elmgreen develop into such a wonderful public golf course and facility for the region. Carr Golf and the team at Elmgreen continue to do great work in the development and I’m delighted to be part of today’s launch.”

Marty Carr, CEO of Carr Golf added; “The Carr family’s relationship with Elmgreen goes right back to 1991 when Carr Golf was founded. Throughout this 26-year period we have assisted Fingal County Council in developing better public golf facilities and amenities for the area. We have a passion for Elmgreen and are working closely with Fingal to develop this destination as a first-class leisure offering as well as a great place to play golf.

Elmgreen Golf Club is a parkland course designed by renowned golf course architect Eddie Hackett. Although situated just off the M50 and only 20 minutes from the city centre, the course offers spectacular views of the Dublin mountains and is renowned for year round playability. Its flexible membership offering provides a range of options starting from €350 per annum. For more details visit elmgreengolfclub.ie.
