Once a certain level has been achieved children will be promoted to the “Eagle Group” where they will spend a lot more time on the Academy course and on the main course off the Academy Blue tees.

You will be fitted for crucial aspects such as length, lie, loft, shaft flex, grip and set make up. Our custom fitting sessions are created and designed to give you the complete solution.

Custom fitting sessions are charged but subsequently the price of the session is deducted from the price of your clubs should you choose to purchase them. We work very closely with all major brands so it helps us deliver to you, the best value experience around.
