    My mate for once came up with some sound advice

    I go this golf centre anyways and their are 4 coaches

    I am not tied to any as I used my last lesson (could transfer lessons anyways apparently) so he said least give his old guy a go and see how it goes for one lesson

    If I don't like it then can go back to my guy but if I like it ive gained a more reailble replier

    The coach I've started seeing the last few months has been brilliant, has really improved my game. At the end of each lesson I always make sure I book the next one with him, or even the next two or three.

    After the last lesson I went to book another and he said give myself time for the baby to settle in (due End of June) then he would contact me in July to book my next lesson

    Otherwise I'd of booked a lesson in for sure

    Jates12 I highly recommend Pete Allan at Ashton in Makerfield which is drivable from you up M6. He has a teaching studio with all tech, responds to emails ( and even comments helpfully on my social media moans about my bad days!) and is known in the area as the guy to go to even from other clubs.

    Absolutely! Got three young kids myself, which is not conducive to playing much golf!

    With my lessons, I picked a time in the week I knew I could always make it for a lesson without anything getting in the way. I'm fortunate that where I get lessons is not far from my work, so I can sneak away in my lunch hour and get one in once a week. And fortunately, my coach is usually available at this time - mostly cos I make sure I'm booked in! Got one later today actually - putting!

    thats a problem though there isnt a set time im ever free, my shifts can change at short notice depending on requirements for my skill set and only get 30 mins meal break so cant sneak off mid shift they would notice

    would love to though lol

    I miss my second pro , shame he had to leave the country he was brilliant at fitting me in.. even would come into work an hour early for me

    Re: Golf coaches

    I may be the biggest wuss that's ever lived lol

    Saw my pro when I go range, first person I clocked he asked about baby etc etc small talk

    So I asked about lessons suddenly I'm fit in for Monday with a block of 4 booked again... lol

    Wuss!

    However only bug bear which I must move past is if you could fit me in Monday why not say when I text last Monday saying I can do Monday - Wednesday next week aswel if that helps

    Will take everyone's advice that said bring your diary and just book the next lesson in advance then show up
