Hartsbourne Country Club Have The Best Golf Practice Facilities In North London
“The one thing I’ve found out, is that the more I practice the luckier I get”
The famous anecdote told by Gary Player about fellow golfer Jerry Barber has become one of the most famous quips ever spoken about the game of golf.
However, never has a truer word been spoken and if you find you have hit a plateau in your game, or fancy trying a new swing, or just need some much-needed practice, then it really is time to get out on the range.
Especially now, as we have made a raft of improvements to our golf practice facilities at Hartsbourne Country Club in Bushey, North London.
Our facilities at Hartsbourne have always been first class, with a 6 bay driving range, 5 practice nets, great chipping greens and a supersize putting green - golfers couldn’t want for more.
But we wanted to make improvements for 2019.
So, we’ve now laid a fantastic, brand new, 8 bay grass driving range to add to the covered 3 bay range and we’ve improved it even further by installing netting, so even the wildest of wayward shots couldn’t reach the golf course.
We also have a brand-new state of the art indoor teaching lab enabling our pros to really help get into the crux of your game and show you ways to start getting shots back on the course.
When you add all this together you will see Hartsbourne Country Club really has all the first-class and best golf facilities you need to take your game to the next level.
So, now you have had the verbal tour of the new practice facilities, it is time for action, but what should you be doing in order to maximize your time on the practice range?
It’s not all about the Driver!
How many times have you popped down to the range with X amount of balls, pulled out the driver and swept them all away within ten minutes and realised that you have learnt absolutely nothing you didn’t already know about your game.
Sounds like that is not the best use of your time.
Instead, why not try starting small, say a sand wedge and hit 20 balls of varying distance to specific targets.
Focus and visualize on what you are trying to achieve with each shot and you will soon pick up tips about your game you otherwise would not have learned.
After the first 20-balls, start moving through some of your clubs with the Sand Wedge, 9-Iron, 7-Iron, 5-Iron, 3-Wood, Driver combination enabling you to try an array of shots from front to end of your bag.
Three-putting is the bane of our lives and yet we all do it a little too regularly for our liking. As the putter is the club that sees more action than any other club in our bag, it would make complete sense to spend twice as long on the putting green as we do on the range.
However, a majority of golfers simply don’t do it or sink a few putts aimlessly despite the importance of putting.
It’s a lot more fun ripping off a drive on the range than it is putting on the practice green (even though it is remarkably satisfying sinking a putt outside of five feet when out on the course).
Why not try a drill to enhance the fun and help master the all-important distance control?
Take five balls, stand three feet away and if you drain 4/5 of them, move a foot back and keep repeating until you cannot go any further.
This is a great way to develop consistency in your strokes and give you confidence when faced with those short to medium putts.
Practice is so important to the game of golf, so you may as well take advantage of our stunning facilities to improve your ‘luck’ on the course.
Hartsbourne Country Club really has all the first-class and best golf facilities in North London that you need to take your game to the next level.
