Excellent day

Thoroughly enjoyable day from start to finish. The coaching from Glenn the Head Pro was first class very clear and concise. Will return in the future.

Fantastic advice, money well spent

I've been playing on or off for around 10 years, and if I played off 28 then a typical round I would score in the mid,/high 20's. Going into the day, I was hoping my swing needed a couple of tweaks - however it turned out that pretty much everything I have self-taught was wrong! Glenn, the instructor however could not have been more accommodating. The day itself was fantastic, plenty of solid advice, great surroundings and Glenn was very informative whilst the banter was all good. In hindsight my game was probably not at the level for this course however those that are already playing correctly and want to strengthen their game it's a perfect day. From breakfast to leaving I felt very at ease and can't thank Glenn enough for the extra time spent with me. I hope to return once my game has improved.

All round excellent day with a great teacher

From the start with blue skies and sunshine, everything went well. The three other guys sharing the experience were good company and the PGA Pro Glenn was on his A game the whole day. Great value and plenty of things to think about going forward!!

Excellent Day Out On The Course

The HM Experience day was perfect and a day I will not forget. Glenn the PGA at Hanbury Manor was a true professional in everyway and is a credit to Hanbury Manor. His approach to teaching was brilliant and I learnt a great deal. Four holes of golf in the morning, some tuition, lunch, then more tuition then back out onto the golf course, this time with Glenn playing along side you (in which he eagled the first hole! but I was happy with my par 4) then being able to play another six holes capped off a great day. Glenn's approach to putting is worth the experience in itself. If you are looking for a great coaching experience this is it!

Excellent Day

I went to Hanbury Manor as the event was re-scheduled. Glenn (PGA Pro) was a great guy with genuine enthusiasm to make the day special. I was made to feel welcome from the second I arrived which is always nice. He provided a number of detailed recommendations on various techniques in putting, course management, swing, chipping & awkward lies. Glenn certainly knew his stuff and I can already see results in my putting from following his advice. The course was great, lunch was fab and the sun was out too! Overall a smashing day which I would definitely recommend.

Great Coaching And Enjoyable Day

Had expected it to be frustrating having a golf lesson with someone I am unlikely to get coaching from again but Glenn at Hanbury Manor was excellent and gave loads of really helpful advice that was working on the day.

Superb Golf Day

Excellent Golf Day at Hanbury Manor. Relaxed day with superb tuition from Glenn in a fabulous setting. For any golfer looking to make progress I can not rate this highly enough.

Never Too Old To Improve Your Game

I have been playing golf for 30 years or more. The golf professional 'Glenn' was excellent because he was very clear in his instructions. He offered an explanation with supporting intelligible reasons why things happen when you swing the club at the ball. (normally the point when things go wrong by my experience) He was very positive in his performance feedback and kept the mood light, informative and good fun throughout the day. I will take away fond memories of the day and clear ideas of what to work on to improve my game over the next few weeks. When you leave, you are encouraged to keep in touch by email so that you can obtain ongoing feedback. It is really nice that someone genuinely cares about your all round game improvement. All the staff were courteous and very friendly at the Manor. Thank you for a great day out.

Excellent tuition

I won the day as a prize in a golf day. What a fantastic prize it turned out to be. I arrived and was provided with coffee and met my partners for the day. Glenn, our pro, took us off to play 4 holes to see us on the course. Immediately he settled all of our nerves by giving us some ?stick?. Once we played holes we went to the putting green and went through routines on putting and chipping. We then had lunch, followed by hitting balls on the range and being videoed. Then back onto the course to put what we had learnt into practice. Glenn again giving pointers and assisting as we went on. After a few holes Glenn left us to finish the round. He has since sent the video footage and other items through via email. There is not enough space to say what a fantastic day it was, Glenn is a credit to himself and Hanbury Manor. In the space of one putting drill he has transformed my putting for that alone I will be eternally grateful. I would HIGHLY recommend this day especially at Hanbury Manor.

Great Day Out

I bought this package as a surprise gift for my partner who is a keen golfer. However he is self taught and I thought it would be good to get a pro to look over his swing and techniques. He loved every minute of the day saying it was very insightful and useful and now can't wait to put what he has learnt into practice.

Brillant Day

This was a gift from my family it was a lovely treat and well worth it. I now can go away with the advice I was given to improve my game.

Top Of The Leaderboard!

I spent the day with a topclass PGA pro called Glenn Gardiner. He was excellent in his teaching and his advice, but the way he handled himself and presented himself was top drawer stuff. He is a credit to himself.

Excellent Day With A Great Tutor.

The content was very well structured, actually better than on the info provided. Glenn Gardiner was an excellent tutor with very good communication skills and insightful analysis. Playing on the course first was a good change also the explanations re ball flight were helpful. Lots of personal attention and tips. Will thoroughly recommend this day to friends. I'm expect my handicap to improve significantly!

Very Highly Recommended

What a fabulous day for a middle handicapper looking to be more consistent and improve their game. Hanbury Manor is a beautiful golf course and the coaching was excellent. After a brief get to know each other session the coach took the four of us out on the course to play a few holes to see what he was up against. After playing 4 holes we moved to the practice green where he provided a number of putting and chipping tips with individual tuition that were worth the cost of the day on their own! The morning quickly disappeared and after a quick sandwich and chat in the bar, we were off to the practice range where the coach spent time with each of us individually working on ways to improve (emailed video followed that evening), followed by a further 9 holes on the course under his supervision before the day ended (although you could finish your round if you wanted). A really enjoyable and helpful day that will improve anyone's game. Many thanks to Glenn who was excellent throughout the experience.

Very Good Day, Very Informative.

I had my Experience Day at Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire. There were five of us having the day. We were met by the PGA professional Glenn, and after a introductory chat, played 4 holes, so our technique could be assessed. Then, it was on to chipping and putting. After the lunch, which was included, it was onto the driving range, so our swing could be analysed. We later played 9 holes as a 2 and 3 ball. We could have played the other 9 holes if we wanted to. All in all, a very good experience.

Great Day indeed!......

A very well structured day. A small party (6) initially put at ease by a well planned and presented programme. 4 holes on the Hanbury Manor course (which is tough for those of us who have seen fitter days!) followed by pitching/putting instruction and a tasty lunch. No respite- straight to the range and followed by 12 holes on this superb course. The day made by the quality of the Professional Glenn in charge who not only knew his trade but had the ability to put it over well and with enthusiasm! This was key to the success of the experience. At the end of the day exhausted... but smiling ! Got a birdie on the 11th!
